Story Behind the Song

A man counsels his girlfriend after a breakup

Lyrics

On Your Own
Many moon have passed
Now I think of you
How are you getting along?
I hope you're not too blue

It lasted quite awhile
You surely left your mark
I had to say goodbye
There was no longer any spark

Chorus: On Your own
That's the way it's gotta be
All alone
Both of us have got to be free

The sun was setting into the night
You kept pleading this isn't right
The bulb in the socket was loose--
It just wasn't bright

When we called it quits
I cried for many days
You meant so much to me
These words are so hard to say

But after so much time
You had grown strange
Your life was much too cluttered
You just wouldn't change

Chorus: On Your own
That's the way it's gotta be
All alone
Both of us have got to be free

The bullet train was speeding faster than fast
It entered the station, things never last
Now you have to get off
Don't hold on to the past

I wish you all the best
In everything you do
There's simply no doubt
You will make it through

(Instrumental)

We must stay apart
How long I can't forsee
One day we'll meet up again
On the road to tranquility

Chorus: On Your own
That's the way it's gotta be
All alone
Both of us have got to be free

(Repeat and fade)
