Are you lonesome tonight? Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor 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? (fine)
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world is a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And 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 go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there,
with emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
then make them bring the curtain down.
