Eleanor Rigby


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?
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?

The Beatles

essa música reporta-me sempre a tardes de domingo na casa dos meus pais, a ouvir esse disco em vinil. lembro-me que sabia as letras, mas não tinha ideia do significado da maioria delas.

A solidão ou talvez o abandono matam! Esta lyric é forte e inteligente, feita com duas pequenas histórias.
