When There's No One Around

This is the song that nobody knows
I couldn't begin to describe how it goes
But it makes me cry and laugh right out loud
It's the song 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
And if he learned how to fly he'd never touch down
It's the man I am when there's no one around

It's four in the morning, I'm lying in bed
With a tape of my failures playing inside my head
The hardknocks and heartaches, things I don't know
I listen and wonder, where will it go?

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

This is the dance I do everyday
I let my soul lead and it takes me away
And it leads my steps to higher ground
It's the dance I do when there's no one around

Will The Circle Be Unbroken

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that undertaker
For to carry my mother away

Well I told that undertaker
Undertaker please rive slow
For the lady you are hauling
Lord I hate to see that woman go

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord by and by
There's a better home awaiting
By and by Lord by and by

Well I followed close behind them
I tried to stand up and be brave
But I could not hold back my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave
Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord by and by
Please tell me there's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord in the sky

I went back home but my home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
Lord what a home so sad and lonesome
