Reminds me of a part of Streets of London lyrics by Ralph McTell and Mary Hopkin.
Have you seen the old man, in the closed-down market
kicking up the papers, with his worn-out shoes?
In his eyes you'd see no pride, hand held loosely by his side
yesterday's papers, telling yesterday's news
So how can you tell me, you're lonely
and say for you the sun won't shine?
Let me take you by the hand,
and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something, to make you change your mind
...Dem, been listening to too much 70s songs....haih....
