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 Would 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 Let them not weep Let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream For in death I'm caressin' you With the last breath of my soul I'll be blessin' you
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 tellin' you How much I wanted you Gloomy Sunday

Samantha from Makati, PhilippinesIts not TRUE .. i've been wanting to suicide because of being broken but i can't i am thinking what would happen to my family if i DIE . i was so intersted in this song that its been almost a year searching for the real mystery regarding this xong but i can't find . I've also tried to listen to this everyday but nothing happens . How can you say that this is reality if me, being me can't make myself suicide ..

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
