Can you see the young and pretty
Confident as cops
Blooming, laughing in the shops
Till the sun turns black

Can you see the old and lonely
Walking through the park
Pushing grocery carts
Till the sun turns black

Can you see the corporate man
He's winning on the telephone
His possessions are his throne
Till the sun turns black

Can you see him in his lounger
Watching TV in the dark
Waiting for a spark
Till the sun turns black

Oh oh oh oh oh
Who are we
Oh oh oh oh oh
Who are we
Who are we

Can you see the working classes
Trudging through their days
Time goes slowly when you're only waiting
Till the sun turns black

Can you see the wise man simply
Living, loving quietly
Every breath he takes eternity
Till the sun turns black

Started out liking this singer, and then got sick of his pug-dog wheezing and relentless, hang-dog, maudlin affectation.
 
{#Lol}  I know what you mean, and given your user name it's fitting that you've twice used canine terms when describing your displeasure with this guy.
What a beautiful song.
 
Thank you RP for this gift.
 
This is who we are.
Very nice!

Such a lovely song, especially as the bus stops in front of the new KEXP location ☺️
Wow - to hear a tune from KEXP on RP....?!  My two favorite stations.
So nice to hear this, I loved all the albums until the latest - if his new record was his first I would have looked the other way.
Sure can't say Overplayed! But it's a very nice find if not just for the lyrics. Tanks again, RP!
Thanks, even :o)
wait!  did he just say this is from KEXP? that's very cool. 

On the other hand, the song is a bit dreary.
Love his tunes. He's thoughtful and 100% sincere, but right now, this is too downbeat and wistful. psd me some r and r. 
This song hits the spot! {#Good-vibes}
Can can.
Love this guy!
I am looking forward to hearing this one for the first time.
Nice.. got my first song added :) :meditate: The lyrics for this are great.. to quote someone from another Ray song thread "I feel the same excitement now that I discovered Ray as when I discovered David." Lyrical Poets
