Lyrics of the week – All The Lonely People – The Beatles

homeless-feet homeless Homeless-2-Ian_Spence_large Homeless and cold Homeless childrenAh, look at all the lonely people
Ah, 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 a face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

chorus:
All the lonely people, where do they all come from?

All the lonely people, where do they all belong?

Father Mackenzie, writing the words to 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?

(chorus)

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 Mackenzie,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?
(Ah, look at all the lonely people)
All the lonely people, where do they all belong?
(Ah, look at all the lonely people)

The song was written primarily by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. With a double string quartet arrangement by George Martin, and striking lyrics about loneliness. Even though I chose to show homeless people there are lonely people all around us. We may even work next to someone. Lets reach out to those who need friendship. It may be as simple as sharing a smile. Peace!
