EVEN!!!

Well then Chrissy, now we are even. I took Matt away
from you and now you took Nick away from me. So there!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ah, 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 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?

"I'm the one who can please you"
Ain't that what you said
You seemed so alone
I guess I was easily led

I showed you my love
But I guess that it went to your head
When you were hungry
I brought you your breakfast in bed

Even it up, even it up, even it up
Even it up, even it up, even it up
A good man pays his debt
But you ain't paid yours yet
Even it
Even it up

I took you down over the tracks when
You wanted some sin
I brought you satin and herbs from
The places I been
Now something tells me you're
Going to use me again
You think you can lay down the how and
The where and the when

Even it up, even it up, even it up
Even it up, even it up, even it up
I don't want to bum it all
But this axe she got to fall
Even it
Even it up

(No idea... "Even it up"?)
