Şarkı Sözleri

Songs Lyrics

BÖYLE AYRILIK OLMAZ

SUCH SEPARATION CAN'T HAPPEN

Kim derdi ki seninle bir gün ayrılacağız

Geçip giden yılların ardından bakacağız


Kim derdi ki bir tanem bir gün ayrılacağız

Ben ve yanan yüreğim yalnızmı kalacağız


Böyle ayrılık olmaz böyle yalnız kalınmaz

Böyle ayrılık olmaz böyle yalnız kalınmaz


Hani verdiğin sözler, hani ellerin ner'de?

Hani huzur bulduğum deniz gözlerin ner'de?

Hani sen hep benimdin?

Şimdi ner'desin, ner'de?

Who would've thought that one day you and I would separate That we'd only look after the years that came and passed.

Who would've thought, my only one, that one day we'd get separated

Me and my devastated heart be left alone?

Such separation can't happen! Such loneliness can't happen!

Such separation can't happen! Such loneliness can't happen!

Where are the promises you made, how about your hands?

Where are your sea blue eyes that I found peace in?

Wasn't it that you were always mine, where oh where are you now?

Where are the promises you made, how about your hands?

NEREDESİN SEN?

WHERE ARE YOU?

Şu garip halimden bilen, işveli nazlım

Gönlüm hep seni arıyor, neredesin sen?


Tatlı dillim, güler yüzlüm, a ceylan gözlüm

Gönlüm hep seni arıyor, neredesin sen, neredesin sen? Neredesin sen


Ben ağlarsam ağlayıp, gülersem gülen

Bütün dertlerim' anlayıp, gönlümü bilen


Sanki kalbimi bilerek, yüzüme gülen

Gönlüm hep seni arıyor, neredesin sen, neredesin sen neredesin sen?


Sinemde gizli yaramı, kimse bilmiyor

Hiç bir tabip şu yarama, merhem olmuyor


Boynu bükük bir garibim, yüzüm gülmüyor

Gönlüm hep seni arıyor, neredesin sen, neredesin sen?

Boynu bükük bir garibim, yüzüm gülmüyor

Gönlüm hep seni arıyor, neredesin sen, neredesin sen, neredesin sen?

My enticing, coy one who knows my strange state

My heart is always looking for you, where are you?


My sweet spoken, smiling face, ah my gazelle eyed

My heart is always looking for you, where are you, where are you, where are you?


You are the one who cries when I cry and laughs when I laugh who understands all my troubles and knows my heart.


You are the one who smiles to my face as if you know my heart,

My heart is always looking for you, where are you, where are you, where are you?


No one knows my secret wound in my heart

No Doctor is becoming an ointment to this wound of mine.


I'm dejected my face down, no smiles

My heart is always looking for you, where are you,

I am dejected my face down, no smiles

My heart is looking for you. Where are you where are you?

KALBİNDEYİM

I AM IN YOUR HEART

Asla vazgeçme

Darılsan da gitme

Kalp bu insanı dağıtır

Darılsan da vazgeçme


Su ol, çiçek ol

Önce sarar sonra sol

Karış yağmura bir damla dol

İçime içime içime


Susuyorsam bir bildiğim var bildiğim

Her yağmur damlasında kederdeyim

Gittiğin yollar çok uzak değil ki bana

Sen orda ben burda kalbindeyim


Asla vazgeçme

Darılsan da gitme

Su ol, çiçek ol

Önce sarar sonra sol

Karış yağmura bir damla doy

İçime içime içime


Susuyorsam bir bildiğim var bildiğim

Her yağmur damlasında kederdeyim

Gittiğin yollar çok uzak değil ki bana

Sen orda ben burda kalbindeyim

Never give up

Don't go even if you are heart broken

It's the heart that tears apart a human

Don't give up even if you are heart broken

Be water, be a flower

Grow pale first, then wither

Blend into the rain, as a drop fill

Into me, into me, into me

If I am silent I have something that I know, that I know

I am in sorrow at every raindrop

The roads that you've gone are not that far away from me

You are there I am here, I am in your heart


Never give up

Don't go even if you are heart broken


Be water, be a flower

Grow pale first, then wither

Blend into the rain, as a drop fill

Into me, into me, into me

If I am silent I have something that I know, that I know

I am in sorrow at every raindrop

The roads that you've gone are not that away from me

You are there I am here, I am in your heart

YEMENİMDE HARE VAR

MY HEADCOVER WITH LINES

Of of!

Yemenimde hare var

Yüreğimde yare var

Yüreğimde yare var


Ne ben öldüm kurtuldum

Ne bu derde çare var

Ne bu derde çare var


Of aman aman amman hoş dilli

Başında yazması kandilli

Çürüttüm otuz iki mendili

Bulamadım o yarimin dengini


Of of!

Yemenim turalıdır

Sevdiğim buralıdır

Sevdiğim buralıdır


Geçme kapım önünden

Yüreğim yaralıdır

Yüreğim yaralıdır


Of aman aman amman hoş dilli

Başında yazması kandili

Çürüttüm otuz iki mendili

Bulamadım o yarimin dengini

Of of! Offf

I have lines on my Headcover

I have love in my heart

I have love in my heart


Neither I died and was saved

Nor found solution to this sorrow


Of aman aman amman Love with nice words

Splendid hat on his head

I rotted thirty-two handkerchiefs

couldn't find an equivalent to my love


Of of of

My head over is with ornament

My love is from here

My love is from here


Don't pass by my door

my heart is wounded

my heart is wounded


Of aman aman amman one with nice words

Splendid heat on his head

I rotted thirty-two handkerchiefs

couldn't find an equivalent to my love
