"You know someone said that the world's a stage and each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love with you as my sweetheart.
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, you acted strange, And why, I'll never know.
Honey you lied when you said you love 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."
(except from the bridge of a 1960 hit)
Are You Lonesome Tonight
