Sunday is gloomy,
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you?

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is Sunday,
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I
Have decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles
And prayers that are said I know
Let them not weep
Let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressin' you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessin' you

Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart, dear
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is tellin' you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday

    I'm a very easily depressed person but I didn't find this song at all sad. It actually made me fall asleep. How is this the saddest song ever?

    There's a couple distinct downsides when you kill yourself (other than the obvious). Number one is psychiatry. Thieves get short sentences, car thieves long ones, and suicides get the nut house (if they get caught ? Talk? )

    People blow up everything pretty fast. It makes it more modern. Then there's a tremor, then it sticks. It makes god talk more.

    It is autumn and the leaves are falling
    all love has died on earth
    the wind is weeping with sorrowful tears
    my heart will never hope for a new spring again
    my tears and my sorrows are all in vain
    people are heartless, greedy and wicked...

    Love has died!

    The world has come to its end, hope has ceased to have a meaning
    cities are being wiped out, shrapnel is making music
    meadows are coloured red with human blood
    there are dead people on the streets everywhere
    i will say another quiet prayer:
    people are sinners, lord, they make mistakes...

    The world has ended!
