Are You Lonesome Tonight?

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's a stage,
And we each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love with you as my sweetheart.
Act One was where we met.
I loved you at first glance,
You read your lines so cleverly,
And never missed a cue.
Then came Act Two.
You seemed to change, you acted strange,
Why I've never known.
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 they can bring the curtain down.

歌词大意

今晚你寂寞吗?
今晚你是否想我?
我们分手你是否难过?
是否还偶尔记得那个灿烂夏日
我吻着你,叫你甜心?
是否没有我屋中便显得空荡?
是否注视门阶想象着我在那里?
你的内心是否充满痛苦?
我应该再回来吗?
告诉我,亲爱的?
今晚你寂寞吗?

我想知道今晚你是否寂寞。
你知道,有人说:这世界是个舞台。
每人都在扮演一个角色。
命运要我坠入情网,而你就是我的情爱。
第一幕即是我们相遇的时刻。
你的台词背的如此纯熟,没有丝毫差错。
第二幕你似乎变了,变得行为怪异。
至今我仍无法弄清为什么。
亲爱的,你骗我说你爱我。
而我却信以为真。
但我宁愿听你撒谎,
也不愿失去你
如今舞台已经空荡荡。
我仍然站在空荡的舞台上。
如果你还不回到我的身旁,
那么,我们也就到此为止了
