"On My Own" as written by and Brian/hoggard Howes....
Feel the force
Of the blow
That's the price
For getting down
Maybe I understand
Just because I'm doing fine

On my own
I'm better off, on my own

Feel the cold, of my hands
That's the price for moving on
Taste the shame, on my lips
I know I know I'll do this

On my own,
I'm satisfied, on my own

[Chorus]
Step aside, let the heart's decide
The final kiss goodnight, my love
Tears will fall, years will grow, they say
The final kiss goodbye, my love

Wipe the sleep, from your eyes
And last night lullabies
Its a smack in the face
I know, I know you'll do this
In your own way

Keep the wolf from the door
Spend some time getting well
On your own
We're better off, on our own

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI think that it's about his dead/ dying wife. Saying that maybe he can still be satified with life on his own without her. "tears will fall years will grow they say" maybe his friends are telling him that time heals all wounds. The "the final Kiss good bye, my love" it's time to let go and move on but he'll always love her at the same time.

    that's just my thoughts on this song anyways. I totally

    General Commentabsolutely in love with this song. i always figured it was about a dying relationship - like they've been separated for a while and he's realised that even though he's alone and his hands are cold without her, he's discovered how much better off they are without each other, so they have their final kiss goodbye and go their separate ways.
