Eponine
And now I'm all alone again nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home without a friend without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
Now I can make believe he's here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I'm happy
With the company I'm keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

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 lose 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 is 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 would 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

    Love is cruel most of the time, she loves him yet he cannot see, she know this yet she keeps the thought that there's a way for them to be together. She knows he loves someone else yet she does her best to make him happy.

    I know It's sad and painful to watch as the person you love is with someone who believes that he could be happy with her. Is painful to see him everyday trying to impress the girl that she loves, it's painful that you know that he mustn't know that you love him. It hurts to be selfless but if it's for someone you love you forget yourself just to see the one you love smile even if you are not beside him.

    Everynight she walks by herself pretending he is walking with her. She wishes he was still with her, but he is not. She depends on him for happiness, but the feeling is not mutual. 'his world' is not affected in regards to amount of happiness or enjoyment based on her existance in it. Despite all this, she loves him. He was her everything, but he has gone and she is on her own.
