When There's No One Around Lyrics

Artist: Tim O'Brien
Album: When No One's Around

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

This is the man that nobody sees
He wears my old clothes, he looks just like me
If he learned how to fly, he'd never touch down
The man that I am when there's no one around

It's four in the mornin', I'm lyin' in bed
A tape of my failures playin' inside my head
Hard knocks and heartaches, things I don't know
I listen and wonder where will it go

This is a glimpse of the child within'
He's so immature but he's still my best friend
Just one of the boys who gets lost in the crowd
The kid that I am when there's no one around

This is the dance that I do every day
Let my feet go, wander away
Let my soul lead, follow the sound
That dance that I do when there's no one around

It's four in the mornin', I'm lyin' in bed
A tape of my failures playin' inside my head
Hard knocks and heartaches, things I don't know
I listen and wonder where will it go

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