ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT ? – (Elvis Presley)

 

Are you lonesome tonight
Do you miss me tonight
Are you sorry we drifted apart
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart
Do the chairs in your parlour seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there

* Is your heart filled with pain
Shall I come back again
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

(Spoken)

I wonder if you’re lonesome tonight
You know someone said "The world’s a stage
And each must play a part"
Fate had me playing in love with you
As my sweetheart

Act one’s when we met and I love you at first glance
You read your lones so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two
You seemed to change, you acted strange
Why, I’ll never know
Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you
But I’d rather go on hearing your lies
Than to go on living without you

Now the stage is bare, and I’m standing there
With emptiness all around me
And if you don’t some back to me
Then they can bring the curtain down.
