Lyrics 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 SAD,
I KNOW.
LET THEM NOT WEEP,
LET THEM KNOW
THAT I'M GLAD TO GO.
DEATH IS NO DREAM,
FOR IN DEATH
I'M CARESSING YOU.
WITH THE LAST BREATH
OF MY SOUL,
I'LL BE BLESSING YOU.
GLOOMY SUNDAY!

DREAMING,
I WAS ONLY DREAMING
I WAKE
AND I FIND YOU
ASLEEP
IN THE DEEP
OF MY HEART,
DEAR.
DREAMING,
I WAS LONELY DREAMING
I FELT MY HEART MELT,
WHEN I DREAMT
THAT WE TWO
ARE APART,
FAR APART,
FAR APART,
FAR APART.
DARLING,
I HOPE
THAT MY DREAM
NEVER HAUNTED YOU
MY HEART
IS TELLING YOU
HOW MUCH
I WANTED YOU,
GLOOMY SUNDAY.

Lyrics verse:
SOMETHING MUST HAVE HAPPENED
TO MY HEART JUST NOW,
SUDDENLY,
MY LIFE'S COMPLETE.
AND YOU BECAME
THE MOST IMPORTANT PART
JUST NOW
I KNOW
AND YOU KNOW,
WE TWO KNOW.

Chorus:
THIS IS IT,
MY GREAT ROMANCE,
I WANT TO HANG ON
TO THIS ONE BIG CHANCE.
YOU'RE MINE,
MY LONELINESS DIES,
I FEEL FINE
WITH STARS IN MY EYES.
OH, IT BUILDS ME UP
TO SUCH A HEIGHT
TO KNOW
THIS IS SO VERY REAL
AND RIGHT,
AND I THOUGHT LOVE
PASSED ME BY.
BUT I MUST ADMIT
THIS IS IT!
