Gloomy Sunday – This song can cause suicide attempts
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 coaches
Sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thoughts
Of ever returning you
Wouldn’t they be angry
If I thought of joining you?
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
But let them not weep
Let them know
That I’m glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I’m caressi’n you
With the last breath of my soul
I’ll be blessin’ you
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart here
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is tellin’ you
How much I wanted you
(“Gloomy Sunday” performed by Billie Holliday)
