When There's No One Around Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

This is the song that nobody knows
I couldn't begin to describe how it goes
It makes me cry or laugh right out loud
It's the song that I sing when there's no one around

This is the man that nobody sees
He wears my old clothes and he looks just like me
Just one of the boys who gets lost in the crowd
He's the man that I am, when there's no one around

It's four in the morning, I'm lying in bed
A tape of my failures playing inside my head
It's heartaches and hard knocks and things I don't know
I listen and I wonder where will it go

This is a glimpse of a child that's within'
He's so immature but he's still my best friend
If he could learn how to fly, he'd never touch down
He's the kid that I am, when there's no one around

This is a dance I do every day
I let my feet go and get carried away
I let my soul lead and follow the sound
It's a dance that I do when there's no one around

It's still four in the morning, I'm lying in bed
A tape of my failures playing inside my head
It's heartaches and hard knocks and things I don't know
I listen and I wonder where will it go

This is the song that nobody knows
I still can't begin to describe how it goes
It makes me cry or laugh right out loud
It's the song that I sing when there's no one around
It's the song that I sing when there's no one around
