I'm Thinkin' what I'm doin'
I'm thinkin' what I've done
I'm thinkin' about my mother
Who never thought I'd come quite,
this far from nowhere
To hear myself be sung, but I still
Haven't forgotten, I used to do it just for fun
And all he ones around me
Would wonder if they saw or heard me singing somewhere, tuning my guitar

Knock once, I got ten minutes,
And every night's the same
Sometimes I wish I wasn't in it
When I hear them call my name
Same people, all around me
And I wonder who they are
I know, they're not my family and they're not my friends by far
They're all, the ones around me, I wonder who they are
They hide, behind my curtain, and they hope I'll be a star

They say, get out and sell them
But sellin's not my aim
I'm gonna sing the life I'm livin' and try to ease the pain of all, the ones around me
No matter who you are, tonight, your gonna hold the curtain, I'm tuning my guitar

And all the ones, all around me, I don't care who you are
Tonight you're gonna hold the curtain
I'm tuning my guitar

All the ones
All the ones
All the ones around me and I don't care who you are
Tonight you're gonna hold the curtain, I'm tuning my guitar
All, all, all the ones around me who, who do you think you are tonight
You're gonna hold the curtain
I'm tuning my guitar
