​The Sun Never Shines On The Lonely

This song is by Redbone and appears on the album Message from a Drum (1971).

Listen through the window of your former life
For the sound of the you that was before
Deep behind the shadows of your conscious mind
You can see what you were that made it be

For the sun never shines upon the lonely
'Cause they're only passing time
Yes, the sun never shines upon the lonely
Was their moment lost in time?

Did you ever wonder why the rich get rich?
Was it luck or a payment justly earned?
Woven from the fabric of another day
Is the pain and the madness love or joy?

For the sun never shines upon the lonely
'Cause they're victims of themselves
For the sun never shines upon the lonely
'Cause their morning comes at night

Realign your senses with the universe
Be aware of the forces of beyond
Look into your heartbeat and regain the truth
Get the dawn of your yesterdays and go

For the sun never shines upon the lonely
It's just mostly wind and rain
Yes, the sun never shines upon the lonely
So they stumble, fall and cry

For the sun never shines upon the lonely
'Cause they're only passing time
Yes the sun never shines upon the lonely
