Are you lonesome tonight do you miss me tonight are you sorry we've drifted apart
Does your memory stray to a bright summer 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

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world's a stage and each of us play a part
Fate had me playing in love with you as my sweetheart
Act one was when we met and I loved you at first glance
You read your lines so cleverly and you never missed a cue then came act two
You seemed to change you acted strange and why I'll never know
Honey you lied when you said that 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
And if you won't come back to me then they can ring the curtain down
Is your heart filled with pain shall I come back again
Tell me dear are you lonesome tonight
