"What Goes On (The Beatles cover)" as written by John Lennon, Richard Starkey and Paul Mccartney....
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind

The other day I saw you
As I walked along the road
But when I saw him with you
I could feel my future fold
I used to think of no one else
But you were just the same
You didn't even think of me
As someone with a name
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why
Tell me why

What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind

I met you in the morning
Waiting for the tides of time
But now the tide is turning
I can see that I was blind
I used to think of no one else
But you were just the same
You didn't even think of me
As someone with a name
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why
Tell me why

What goes on in your heart?
On in your mind?
You are tearing me apart

What goes on in your heart?
On in your mind?
You are tearing me apart

What goes on in your heart?
On in your mind?
You are tearing me apart

What goes on in your heart?
On in your mind?
You are tearing me apart

What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?

    General CommentSufjan really made this song his own. I wish this was written by Ringo but it was written mostly by John Lennon.
