about

t.k. bollinger Melbourne, Australia

A connoisseur of dark moods and plaintive melodies, t.k. bollinger is an explorer on the road less travelled. His musical children are songs of contrite and emotionally challenged characters confessing their darkest fears and tortured realisations.
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.

Track Name: Gloomy Sunday
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.
