Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles (All The Lonely People) +Lyrics

Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles is one of my favorite songs to listen to. I sometimes wish it was just a longer song but maybe that’s why it is so perfect.

I remember seeing a boat in Lake Michigan this past summer with the named “Eleanor Rigby” on the boat and I wish I could find the picture but it just made me stop and look at it. I think I have become a lot more sensitive and appreciative of the little things in life when my mom had become sick last year and this was one of those moments where I was just stopped in my tracks.

Last night I was driving home with my girlfriend and was in a depressed sort of mood thinking about my mom and this song happened to come on the radio. It was just the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in a long time and I just believe this song is perfect.

Eleanor Rigby – The Beatles (All The Lonely People)

Here is the song found on YouTube including the lyrics on the bottom:

Eleanor Rigby Lyrics:

I look at all the lonely people
I look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near.
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?
