The Lyrics


Were you lonesome last night?
If you were, serves you right.
It’s no wonder we drifted apart.
When I think what you said as I fell out of the bed
And you sat up and called me a fart!
Do you wish I was with you still naked and bare?
Do you look in the mirror and find I’m not there?
Is your head racked with guilt, when you throw back the quilt?
So my dear, were you lonesome last night?

I guess that you were lonesome last night
You know my mate said you strung me along
And acted all the time.
You had me on a long lead, no reason or rhyme.
The first time that we met I loved your long blond hair
You played your part convincingly, I fell for it right there.
But very soon you lied to me, and then I could see
That you loved someone else.
Sweetheart, I knew that you never loved me
It was clear to me from the start.
But I thought I’d enjoy it while I could
Even though I knew we would part.
Now your flat is bare and you’re sitting there
With knowing I’ve gone for good.
I thought I might return one day
But I knew that I never would.

Do you now feel the pain? You won’t see me again.
So my dear, were you lonesome last night?
