on Amazon Music

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day,
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze...

    I heard it was a song about his wife/ex wife and how he still loved her, but the marriage was at rock bottom.

    A great song about unrequited love. You really get the sense that he's singing this on stage alone with nobody in the audience. He seems so frail singing this song, unlike Elvis' usual character.
    This is such a sad song, I love it.
    I learned the whole part where he's talking last year and recited it in class and the teachers were like: 'kid, what are you talking about??' lol
    I love his voice in this song, its so serious and sad, love it.
