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 you kissed me and called me sweetheart
Does the room where we once loved seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your pillow and picture me there
Is your heart filled with pain could I come back again
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said the world's a stage and everyone must play a part
Fate had me playing In Love with you as my sweetheart
Act one was where we met you read your lines so well and never missed a cue
Then act two you seemed to change you acted strange and why I never knew
Honey you lied when you said you loved me and I had no cause to doubt you
And I'd rather go on hearing your lies than to go on living without you
So the stage is bare and I'm standing there with emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me then they can ring the curtains down
Is your heart filled with pain shall I come back again
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight
