when there’s no one around lyrics – garth brooks

this is a song that n*body knows
i couldn’t begin to describe how it goes
but it makes me cry or laugh right out loud
it’s a song that i sing when there’s no one around

this is the man that n*body 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 lyin’ in bed
a tape of my failures
playin’ 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 the 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 the 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 the dance that i do when there’s no one around

it’s four in the morning
i’m lyin’ in bed
a tape of my failures
playin’ 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 song that n*body knows
i still can’t begin to describe how it goes
but it makes me cry or laugh right out loud
it’s a song that i sing when there’s no one around
it’s a song that i sing when there’s no one around
