"When There's No One Around" as written by Timothy Page O'brien and Darrell Scott....
This is a song that nobody 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 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 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
Thi is a song that nobody knows
I still can't begin to describe how it goes
But it makes me cry our 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

    General CommentThis song is one of an extreme few in the country music genre I can relate to, or even tht I like at all. This song portrays a hidden child; a hiddn man inside of himself that he's afraid to show b/c of people's reactions. No matter how hard he tries, there's always hidden pieces of his soul that rmain a mystery to others. That's me.
