[Originally performed in the "Les Miserables" Broadway play]

On my own
Pretending he's beside me
All alone
I walk with him till morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I loose my way
I close my eyes and he has found me

In the rain
The pavement shines like silver
All the lights
Are misty in the river
In the darkness
The trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me
Forever and forever

And I know
It's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself
And not to him
And although
I know that he is blind
Still I say
There's a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He's gone
The river's just a river

Without him
The world around me changes
The trees are bare
And everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I'm learning
All my life
I've only been pretending

Without me
His world will go on turning
A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own
