Cold-hearted orb...

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bed-sitter people look back and lament
Another day’s useless energy spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one—
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens with they were young

Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is gray... and yellow, white
But we decide which is right

And which is an illusion

  2. :) I have loved this song since I was in my teens. Great song! I'm glad someone else out there actually knows it.
