on my own lyrics – shawn colvin

on my own

if i don’t see you
before i go
remember what you’ve seen
and what you know
sunshine, you will be
on my mind eternally
but let’s just you remember you
and i’ll remember me

[chorus]
i’m gonna be on my own
it’s a long way home
i feel like a baby boy
just bein’ born

a captive of your heart i guess i was
you gave no reason for stopping loving me
just because
you dragged yourself right down
you did not hear a sound
but for the tapping of your teardrops
on the ground

[chorus]

if you find your true love
once again
please don’t do the same d*mn thing
to them
cause even when i was with you
i felt so all alone
i’d just as soon do without you and be
on my own

[chorus]
