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.

Even though I've been with him the longest of all of the men I've been with, he's the only one that's had this effect on me after he left. Sometimes, I'll take a walk around the block and think back on our relationship, and it makes me happy that he's with me again.

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.

Even when it was just me and Louise, I would think back on when the two of us would walk together on the way back to the hotel during the act at the burlesque theater. Even now, I feel his arms around me when I sit on the bed and stare absent-mindedly at the wall. I close my eyes whenever I get confused or scared or lost and he's with 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 for ever and forever.

When it's raining, I stare out the window and the pavement looks like it's made out of pure silver. All the lights are misty and look beautiful. I can see the stars through the trees and I think that we'll be together 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.

But the thing is that I know that my fantasy of the two of us is only in my mind and that I'm only hearing his response in my mind. And even though he's left and that when he was here he didn't see that I loved him, even though it wasn't all that evident, I still think that 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.

But then I get pulled out of my fantasy by something and my entire world changes – just a bedroom with my bed and my things, not ours. The stray people that I would see walking aren't friends anymore – they're strangers. The stars in the trees are just stars shining through the trees, and the lights shine bright and cold.

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...
