Had this song been done by almost anyone else, it would surely be a drug song. However, from Neil Diamond it remains a cryptically haunting song about Captain Sunshine being able to "make me feel fine, when I'm wrongly down" and who "makes the words rhyme when the tune is sad." Who or what is the mysterious Captain Sunshine? No idea. All we know is that he "walks so pure between the earth and the sea." Definitely a very spiritual song.
