On My Own
On my own by Claude-Michel Schönberg Les Miserables From the official Les Miserables notes. INTRO: D Em D Em VERSE 1: D Em/D D D/C# On my own, pretending he's beside me. Bm E7 A A/Ab All alone, I walk with him till morning. G F#7 Bm Without him, I feel his arms around me. Em Em/D A And when I lose my way I close my eyes and he has found me! VERSE 2: D Em/D D D/C# In the rain, the pavement shines like silver. Bm E7 A A/Ab All the lights are misty in the river. G F#7 Bm In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight. Em Em/D A And all I see is him and me forever and forever. BRIDGE: Bb Cbm/Bb Bb Bb/A And I know it's only in my mind, Gm Bb/F Eb that I'm talking to myself and not to him. Em B B7 And, although I know that he is blind, Am7 C7 still I say there's a way for us. VERSE 3: F Gm/F F F/E I love him. But when the night is over. Dm G7 C C/B He is gone, the river's just a river. Bb A Dm Without him, the world around me changes, Gm Gm/F C the trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers. VERSE 4: F Bb/F F F/E I love him, but every day I'm learning. Dm G7 C C/B All my life, I've only been pretending. Bb A Dm Without me, his world will go on turning. Gm C A world that's full of happiness that I have never known. ENDING: F I love him, F/Eb I love him, Dm I love him, Bbm/C# F but only on my own.
