38 (who?)
And now I'm left alone again

Nowhere to turn, no one to go to

Without a home, without a friend

Without that hope they all can renew

The empty bottles all drawn near;

I pray for the numbness I hold dear  

Sometimes I stumble through the streets

When everybody else is sleeping

I'm losing focus and sensation

But the bitterness I'm keeping

He spoke of black and red

The words still ring inside my head

On my own

Pretending he's beside me

All alone

I walk with him 'til morning

Without him

I drink away my sorrows

Until all I see is him and me

At least until tomorrow

In this haze

The pavement shines like silver

All the lights are misty like the river

In my vision

His eyes are full of starlight

And I can see him holding me to scare away the shivers

And I know

And I'm all the more resigned

That it's the drink that's talking to me

And not him

And although

It's only Patria in his mind

Still I say

There's a way for us

I love him

But when sobriety ends illusion

He is gone

To plan his revolution

Without him

The world around me changes-

My feelings bare

But no one's there to see them but the strangers

I love him

But on highs, I grasp at solutions

And all the drinks

Are just poor substitutions

Without me

He has his revolution

In a world that's full of light and hope

That I have never known

I love him

I love him

I love him

But only on my own
wow the sads. Beenin a real Grantaire frame of mind lately, so here. Sorry to bum you out guys. But I guess I'm actually kind of proud of this...? Excuse you, Eponine die-hards but Grantaire's love is just as tragic and him and Ep' should just get together and form a lonely hearts club. They would just complain to each other about their boys all the time and cry over sad songs and drinks.
Yet another AU I demand. Fandom, why are you so slow on the draw?
Clearly the original song isn't mine. Hence the title 'parody'. So don't bug me about that.
