Are You Lonesome Tonight ==> Elvis Presley

 

I Wonder if you're lonesome tonight ?

You know someone said that the world's a stage and each of us plays a part.

They 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 lines so cleverly and never missed a queue.

Then came act two, you seemed to change, you acted strange and why I'll never know.

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 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 bring the curtain down.

"So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish" is a new song from A Perfect Circle.  I heard it for the first time when we saw A Perfect Circle live on Wednesday night (4.18.18) and I've probably listened to it a dozen times since.

 

The song has a very happy, upbeat melody which makes its dark, cynical message even more potent. I think it's absolutely brilliant (even though it makes me cry every time I listen to it).

 

 

Time is money and money's time

We wasted every second dime

On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps and flags

and plastic surgery


Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom,

Ali, and Leia have moved on

Signal the final curtain call

in all its atomic pageantry


Bravissimo, hip hip hooray

For this fireworks display

Mind and body blown away

What a radiant crescendo!


Ticker tape parade

Our hair and skin like

Marilyn Monroe

in an afterwind


Time is money and money's time

We wasted every second dime

On politicians, fancy water and guns

and plastic surgery


Michael, Prince and Brady's mom

All the dolphins have moved on

Signaling the final curtain call

in all its atomic pageantry


Bravissimo, hip hip hooray

What a glorious display

Melt our joyous hearts away

Under the mushroom cloud confetti


Hip hip hooray

For this fireworks display

Mind and body blown away

What a radiant crescendo!


Hip hip hooray

Hip hip hooray

Ticker tape parade

Our hair and skin like

Marilyn Monroe

In an afterwind


Time is money and money's time

We wasted every second dime

On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps and flags

and plastic surgery


Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom,

Ali and Leia have moved on

Signal the final curtain call

in all its atomic pageantry
