"Gloomy Sunday" as written by Rezso Seress, Laszlo Javor and Sam M. Lewis....
Sunday is gloomy
My hours are slumber less
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
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
But 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 here
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is telling you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday

    General CommentObviously this song is a reference to drug addiction. Probably heroin, since she says, "little white flowers" (Heroin is made of poppies). And the lines "The shadows I live with are numberless". She has entered a deep clinical depression by the time she sings "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." A great song.
