To create a cautionary tale about a life without love, Babyface uses one of the greatest lonely figures in music history: the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby
." He warns his ex that "Eleanor Rigby spends half her life all alone."
"The fun part about that song was 'Eleanor Rigby,'" Babyface told Billboard
. "It started off with 'Eleanor Rigby lived her life all alone,' and that was a fun line to throw in the beginning of it."
