"On My Own" as written by Neil/gontier Sanderson and Barry Stock....
I walk alone, think of home
Memories of long ago
No one knows I lost my soul long ago

Lied too much
She said that she's had enough
Am I too much
She said that she's had enough

Standing on my own
Remembering the one I left at home
Forget about the life I used to know
Forget about the one I left at home

I need to run far away
Can't go back to that place
Like she told me
I'm just a big disgrace

Lied too much
She said that she's had enough
Am I too much
She said that she's had enough

Standing on my own
Remembering the one I left at home
Forget about the life I used to know
Forget about the one I left at home
So now I'm standing here alone
I'm learning how to live life on my own

Lied too much
I think that I've had enough
Am I too much
She said that she's had enough

I'm standing on my own
Remembering the one I left at home
Forget about the life I used to know
Forget about the one I left at home
So now I'm standing here alone
I'm learning how to live life on my own
Forget about the past I'll never know
Forget about the one I left at home

    General CommentThis song is about the lead singers friend, who when she was younger, was molested.


    This is the actuall meaning of the song to him and what he wanted it to mean, but it means something else to everybody, thats the magic in their music.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the album, hands down! 3DG are so powerful! When I heard this song for the first time, the pre-chorus gave me chills!

    For me it's about realizing that you made mistakes and not letting it dictate your future. He realized that he screwed up his relationship, but instead of sulking in the pain, he chooses to pick himself up and start anew!

    General CommentFor me this song stands for that a man is standing on the edge of his previous life and he looks at his past, he recalls all the pain he cost on himself and others, and realizes that he has to move on, forget everything, whetever he likes it or not

    General CommentI think it's someone thinking about all the people who have abandoned him because of mistakes he's made, and realising that doesn't matter anymore they just need to get up and start off on their own again.
