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.

Sunday is gloomy,
with shadows I spend it 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.

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 telling you how much I wanted you,
Gloomy Sunday.

    General CommentI think her version of Gloomy Sunday is the best by far, although Heather Nova's is interesting. Note that the lyrics "dreaming..." were added to the original song because it was found to be too depressing.
