"Gloomy Sunday" as written by and Rezso/javor Seress....
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 thoughts
Of ever returning you
Wouldn’t they be angry
If I thought of joining you?

...Gloomy... sunday...

Gloomy is sunday,
With shadows I spend in all
My heart and i
Have decided to end it all
Soon there’ll be flowers
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...

    General Commentit also sounds like its about suicide.
    "Angels have no thoughts
    Of ever returning you
    Wouldn’t they be angry
    If I thought of joining you?"
    if she thought of killing herself and going up to heaven, or would they not accept her since she committed suicide (Wouldn't they be angry)? im not sure why she says "joinging YOU" instead of "THEM" maybe she is speaking to God?

    General CommentI think she lost someone that she loved. So without them she feels there is no point in living, therefor she wants to kill herself on a gloomy sunday.

    General CommentThis song was written in 1933 By two Hungarians: Rezo Seress and Laszlo Javor. The song supposedly drew little attention until 1936, when it began to be connected with a rash of suicides in Hungary and was allegedly banned there. American musicians and singers soon jumped at the chance to record insturmental and translated versions of the "Hungarian Suicide Song" and by the end of 1936, Several recordings were available to American audiences.
    The Billie Holiday version was recorded several years later, was probably the most popular English-Lanuage version of "Gloomy Sunday."

    General CommentWow. I love this song. Yesterday, Sunday, I learned my friend's dog might be put down, so I was real depressed and just laid on the ground with my dog for like, hours, begging the Gods to let her live.
