Are you lonesome tonight -今晚妳寂寞嗎?

Are you lonesome tonight【今晚妳寂寞嗎?】
—Elvis Presley(艾維斯普里斯萊)

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
今晚妳寂寞嗎?
今晚妳想我嗎?
妳對我們的分手感到難過?
妳的記憶是否迷失在那個
當我吻妳,並叫妳「甜心」的燦爛夏日

Do the chairs in your parlour seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your door step
And picture me there
妳起居室裡的椅子是否顯得空盪盪的
妳是否注視著門階
想像著我就在那兒

Is your heart filled with pain
Shall I come back again
Tell me dear
Are you lonesome tonight
妳的心中是否充滿痛苦?
我應該再回來嗎?
親愛的,告訴我
今晚妳寂寞嗎?

〔口白〕
I wonder if you’re lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world is a stage
And we each must play a part
Faith had me playing in love
With you as my sweetheart
Act one was, when we met
I love you at first glance
Yor read your lines so cleverly
And never missed a cue
Then came back to
You seemed to change, you acted strange
And why I’ve never known
我想知道今夜妳是否寂寞?
妳知道有人說過這世界就像是一座舞台
而我們每個人都必須軋上一角
命運注定我要演一場愛情戲
而妳便是我的甜心
第一幕是我們相遇
我對妳一見鍾情
而妳的台詞背的如此純熟
從未出錯
緊接著是第二幕
妳看起來似乎變了,舉止怪異
至今我仍然不明白

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(*)
甜心,妳撒謊,當妳說妳愛我
我卻沒有理由懷疑妳
但我寧願繼續聽妳說謊
也不願過著沒有妳的日子
如今,舞台上空無一人
而我獨自站在那兒
四周空空盪盪的
如果妳不回到我身邊
那麼他們就可以放下簾幕了

〔歌〕
Is your heart filled with pain
Shall I come back again
Tell me dear
Are you lonesome tonight
妳的心中是否充滿痛苦?
我應該再回來嗎?
親愛的,告訴我
今晚妳寂寞嗎?

 Are-you-lonesome-tonight

子非魚,焉知魚之樂?
不到園林,怎知春色如許??
貓王這首歌,顯然是種角色互換,表面是在問對方,實質上卻是在細述自己的思念寂寞…
Do you gaze at your door step
And picture me there
唉~~難耐的思念寂寞,總是叫人望眼欲穿….

總是不自覺望向窗口,
看看行經的路人,是否帶來你的消息。
雁鴨來了,才驚覺春天的足音,
我搜尋雁影,懷疑是你來自遠方的信差。

渾厚溫柔的呢喃,再加上輕柔的和聲和吉它伴奏,真的很好聽!曲好詞更好,特別是那佔整首歌一大半的口白,婉轉曲折,字字敲進心坎。

”但我寧願繼續聽妳說謊
”也不願過著沒有妳的日子

假裝你在獨自的遠方,依然默默守候,
假裝我也在咫只的天涯,一如以往…..
愛情不就是深深的沉溺,又茫茫然的徬徨與充滿自欺嗎??

好歌,其實一把吉它或一隻小口琴,就己足夠。
歌是情感的語言,是靈魂的節拍。
