Song Help! 80s Sound Yet Modern Song?

I heard this song the other day while at my local Winn Dixie and I cannot find the name of this song or the artist ANYWHERE. I have tried Google, Yahoo, lyrics websites, nothing. It is a male singer and kind of sounds like a 80's new wave song and has an electronic melody, but I believe the song is a recent modern song. It sounds like it could be a song from a band such as The Killers (but the singer is different) if that helps any. I don't understand why this song is so hard to find, considering it is played over a satellite radio, probably Muzak. Here's some of the lyrics I was able to gather:

"Time will slowly take us away from all these things..."

"Rain washes out all the sound..."

I know its not much to go off but its really hard to hear the lyrics in the store...Any help would be appreciated!

I also have been looking for that song. I have been trying to pick up more lyrics to the song but the way it is sung is too low. " time goes by? Slow? Tonight? Darkness oversees? Over sea? Disappearing to the night with me?? With me??? Rain washes out all the sound, time..........reactions fade.......... Time goes? Slow to take us away from all these things we want to know????" That's all I've gotten so far.

The song is called "Darkness" by a band called Suntalk out of NYC. It took me six months to find the answer because I FREAKING LOVE that song.

Thank you for finding this. I just heard this song today at Walgreens also. I also found another band called Archive - "The empty Bottle" as I thought it might be them.

Ahhh! You guys rock. I just heard this in Vons (California version of the Safeway chain) and loved it, but could only make out snippets of lyrics. Can't believe they led me here to the right answer here on the first try. Thanks!

After they released their EP, the band took down all their tracks and versions thereof at the various music sites. But I did a ton of sleuthing and dug up the other two versions that aren't on Youtube, including the one I heard at Stop & Shop originally. So stoked. This is such an earworm.
