Broken Heart Songs From Les Miserables – Eponine’s Unrequited Love For Marius

Posted On // 4 comments

Here are the lyrics of On my Own, A Little Fall Of Rain and part of In My Life

1. On My Own – this was sung by Eponine while walking in the empty streets of Paris to give the note to Marius written by Cosette.

“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 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 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”

2. A Little Fall Of Rain – Eponine sang this song with Marius while she was fatally wounded. As she was dying, she confessed her love to Marius.  

"So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You’re here
That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow

But you will live ‘Ponine
Dear God above
If I could close your wounds with words of love

Just hold me now
And let it be
Shelter me, comfort me
Don’t you fret, M’sieur Marius

I don’t feel any pain
A little fall of rain
That’s all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers…


3. In My Life

“Every word that he says is a dagger in me.
In my life, there’s been no one like him anywhere
Anywhere, where he is.
If he asked, I’d be his.
In my life
There is someone who touches my life.
Waiting here…

He was never mine to lose
Why regret what cannot be?

His heart full of love
He will never feel this way
These are words he’ll never say
Not to me…”


  1. Oh.. your list of break up songs is awesome. Hehehe, I also have my own list both of classic and new songs. Listening to these kind of songs remings me of how brokenhearted I was before, but eventually moved on easily because I've reached my limit of crying already :)))

  2. @Meow Opre, yours is awesome too. :)
