Boy of mine
As your fortune comes to carry you down the line
And you watch as the changes unfold
And you sort among the stories you've been told

For Everyman through running on empty the man was hitting on all cylinders. I don't know if a more sincere and caring line than "if I could get you to smile before I leave" has ever been written. Terrific stuff

Just a brilliant song by Jackson. A song this intelligent, thoughtful and well written will never be produced by the current crop of so called artists with the commercializ e d , disposable formulaic music the industry has degenerated into today. Enjoy great music like The Pretender album while you can.
