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 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 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, here Darling, I hope that my dream never haunted you My heart is telling you how much I wanted you Gloomy Sunday

He said I was brave As my knuckles hit the pavement With years of seconds spent Tucked behind my ears Waiting for life to begin Is this what you're going for? Is this what you're made of? Is this what you're going for? Is this what you're made of? She's light as a feather She floats to the ground And when she hits She doesn't make a sound And she's off and running In search of a crown And you can try But you cannot take her down She scours the city For eyes to call home The longest nights are ones she spends alone A head full of dreams Hard eyes full hope Where she stops no one ever really knows

peel back the skin pin the giants to the wall look at their wings touch the dust that made them fall coins to the river breath to the dandelion dream in the warren to be one of those fighting No one knows how they just hit the speed and drive the speed and drive out of no way and nothing scratching to be alive to be alive the ones that win pin the medals to the wall flashing their rings prize for answering the call coins to the river breath to the dandelion dream in the warren to be one of those fighting no one knows how it's just the way things are math of the airborne another day worn another day worn No one knows how they just hit the speed and drive the speed and drive out of no way and nothing scratching to be alive to be alive

you carry your jewel between your teeth no kisses for the drunken thief he might pluck it from your lips, my friend tell me, where would you be then? little venus medusa, don't look don't look him in the eye, if you want if you want to keep yourself tonight are we finally here again rain down your mouth on me are we finally here again give the winds up, helm to lee

Days were falling around me Like paper birds Mistakes and miscalculations And all my broken words Gimme gimme gimme a plan Gimme gimme gimme a place to stand Gimme gimme gimme your hand Let us make different mistakes Chases herself in circles Tracing the same old misdeeds And tries to find a way out And walks the line carefully, carefully Change the subject when she can I'm alright, of course I am Gimme gimme gimme a plan Gimme gimme gimme a place to stand Gimme gimme gimme your hand Let us make different mistakes Gimme gimme gimme a damn Gimme gimme gimme everything and Gimme gimme gimme your hand Days were falling around me Like paper birds

Your hands around my waist I'm at fever-pitch Least that's the way that I remember it Your gaze trained on my face How do I keep you looking at me that way My hands around your waist You're at fever-pitch Least that's the way that I remember it My gaze trained on your fingertips How do I let this slip away? I'll keep the fires burning I'll wait here safe at home I won't give myself away And I can't let go

you always thought you were so self-reliant till you found yourself sitting in the house of giants at the edge of every wrong word the balance might break open up the wounded admit your mistakes and it's pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty tonight hanging by the backdoor waiting round for lightning to strike give me that moment you've been holding onto for your whole goddamn life it's gonna be that kinda night and it's one bottle two bottles three bottles five the dice rolls and their eyes all come back empty I'm walking home alone to songs that you sent me I'm taking bets from the bench and measuring out the stakes on if tonight's the night I'll finally be brave and it's pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty the lights of the carousel as it turns and passes by give me that moment you've been holding onto for your whole goddamn life it's gonna be that kinda night and it's one bottle two bottles three bottles five my fist is at the ready clenched with pretty little secrets to hide and it's one bottle two bottles three bottles five naked and clumsy these fingers won't find their footing your pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty voice will be my undoing

Beautiful complications With your eyes like birds They're poised, they're poised for flight Bypassing self-preservation Undone Any closer and the whole sky will ignite Spreading hands Towards the sun Counting time You're touching my body The fear in me disappears I don't know how you found your way down here You're touching my body The strength in me disappears But then it's too late You've made your great escape
