Sunday is gloomy my hours are slumberless. Dearest, the shadows I live with are numberless. None can extinguish this flame that I hold for you Not where the black coach of sorrow has taken you. Deep in my heart I know you’re not returning There is no place for this love that is burning On a gloomy Sunday. Saddest of Sundays, with shadows I spend it; My heart and I have decided to end it . Soon there'll be candles and prayers murmured low; Let them not weep, let them hear 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. On a gloomy Sunday.

They speak of the usual things – love, abuse, neglect and the small triumphs and tiny truths that gleen in our day to day growth and survival.
