about

I saw the rain outside, a strong impulse made me start humming ‘Gloomy Sunday’. It followed a firm decision to make my own version of the song. Half way through the song, I realised it might have been Ela speaking through me. I found out about my dear friend Ela’s passing 2 days ago. My memory of her voice is vivid. This song is my tribute to her.

Life that you and I have right now is a gift. My voice is to be used to finish off all that is left unsaid and undone.

She was so beautiful, talented, kind, generous and cute. She’s one of my very few friends, and she was an amazing friend to me over the last 10 years. She always came to my shows whenever she was around, and told people about me whenever there was or wasn’t an opportunity. She used to tell me how much she loved my darker music vibes. We have just started our journey together in music and art. We were going to do so much more together. I guess singing a song for her is the least I can do now.

lyrics

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 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 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
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 tellin' you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday
