On My Own lyrics

(carole bayer sager, burt bacharach)

So many times I said it was forever
Said our love would always be true
Somethin in my heart always knew
Id be lying there beside him

On my own, on my own, on my own

So many promises never should be spoken
Now you know what loving him costs
Now youre even talking divorce
And you werent even married

On my own
Once again im
One more time by myself

No one said it would be easy
But it once was so easy
Well I believe in love now here I stand
You wonder why

Im on my own
Why did it end this way
On my own
This wasnt how it was supposed to be
On my own
I wish that we could do it all again

So many times I know I could have told you
That losing him would cut like a knife
He walked out and there went your life
I dont want to live without him

On my own
This wasnt how it was supposed to end
On my own
I wish that we could do it all again
On my own
I never dreamed Id spend one night alone by myself
On my own
Youve got to find out where you belong again
On my own
Youve got to learn how to be strong again
On my own
I never dreamed Id spend one night alone by myself

Youve got to find out where you belong again
Your heart is saying that its time again
And I know that youre gonna shine again
