Elvis Presley - Are you lonesome tonight
Tekst: Roy Turk / Muziek: Lou Handman
(1960)






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 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 is a stage
And each must play a part
Fate had me playing in love with 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



And then came act two
You seemed to change
You acted strange
And why, I’ve never known
Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt
But I’d really go on hearing your lies
Than I 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 bring the curtain down



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