Lyrics for What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? by Olivia Dean:

Verse 1
What am I gonna do on Sundays?
You'd throw the curtain wide
And I wouldn't mind the sky of only clouds
Sheltering in that subway
We proper painful laugh
And see how long we make a tenner last
I'm gonna miss you
Having something to say about everyone
Ruining my joke coming up with a better one
Leaving all this might be easier said than done
It's a fight that you should have won

Chorus
You can keep the rain
But let me have the Sundays
That's something I can't bear to lose
No need to pretend
That all we had was Sundays
We had our share of Mondays too

Post-Chorus
I thought you'd fight a little harder for me
I thought you'd fight a little harder for me

Verse 2
Tired on the train this morning
Who am I gonna tell 'bout my day from hell?
Who's gonna talk me down?
I'll mostly miss the boring
The walk from your house
To that cafe you're always on about
Too bad, couldn't see what you had in front of you
I did what I had to do

Chorus
You can keep the rain
But let me have the Sundays
That's something I can't bear to lose
No need to pretend
That all we had was Sundays
We had our share of Mondays too

Post-Chorus
I thought you'd fight a little harder for me
I thought you'd fight a little harder for me
Mmm, fight a little harder for me
I thought you'd fight a little harder for me

Song Facts

In Olivia Dean’s own words, this song is about “the sad and longing part” of the breakup. She seems to painfully grieve, as if mourning a life lost. There is denial (“leaving all this might be easier said than done”), anger(“I thought you’d fight a little harder for me”),depression(“that’s something I can’t bear to lose”), and finally acceptance(“I did what I had to do”).

It’s an ode to what once was, but in a way that tries to move on. Only she can judge her success, and likewise you with heartbreaks your own.
