"The Same Old Sun" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
Tell me what to do, now the light in my life is gone from me
Is it always the same, is the night never ending
Tell me what to do all the hopes and the dreams went wrong for me
There's a smile on my face but I'm only pretending

Taking my life one day at a time
'Cause I can't think what else to do
Taking some time to make up my mind
When there's no one to ask but you

The same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright eyes would welcome me home
And the moon would rise way over my head
And get through the night alone

And the same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright stars would welcome me home
And the clouds would rise way over my head
I'll get through the night on my own

Tell me what to do now there's nobody watching over me
If I seem to be calm well, it's all an illusion
Tell me what to do when the fear of the night comes over me
There's a smile on my face just to hide the confusion

Taking my life one day at a time
'Cause I can't think what else to do
Taking some time to make up my mind
When there's no one to ask but you

The same old sun would shine in the morning
And the same bright eyes would welcome me home
And the moon would rise way over my head
I'll get through the night alone

And the same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright stars would welcome me home
And the clouds would rise way over my head
I'll get through my life on my own, on my own
On my own, on my own

    General CommentA person dealing with being spurned by a lover - kind of an "I'll be alight" in a postive light sort of way. The opposite to "Sooner or Later", which is more of an "I'll be alright" in a more spiteful sense.

    General CommentI think the last line actually is "I'll get through my life on my own".

    My InterpretationSeems to have lost a loved one... a spouse/lover or maybe a child to death. Consoling himself?
