"Till The Sun Turns Black" as written by and Ray Lamontagne Ethan Johns....
10. Till the sun turns black

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 the spark
Till the sun turns black
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooo ooh wee ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooo ooh wee who are --
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

    General CommentI think it's just saying in the end, we're all the same. No one is better than anyone else. The young and pretty, the old and lonely (and homeless), the rich corporate worker that worships materialistic things, the average middle class person all the way up to the wise man. We're all exactly the same because we start from the same place and end up at the same place. We all die. When he says "till the sun turns black" he's simply using a metaphor for death. No one is better than anyone else. It's a truth that complicated and hard to understand, but it's a truth Ray has discoverd.
    Let me just say this is one of my favorite songs. I love it when he's singing the "ohs." It just sounds so raw and honest.
    Thank God for good music =]
