Gökhan Türkmen -
Bir Öykü
[A story]


Al bu sana ilk olmuşken
Take, it's the first for you
Ne acı ki son şarkım bu
But, unfortunately, the last song of mine
Çok mu kolaydı yoksa zor mu
Was it very easy or hard
Sisli aşk mı tutku mu
Was it a hazy love or a passion
Oldu hani olmazdı sondu
It worked, it didn't work, it was the end
Sende gitmek yoktu
You didn't leave
Doldu süre bize bu bile çoktu
Our time was up, it was even too much
Bir hayaldi yok oldu
It was a dream, and it's gone
 
 
Sus doğru yalan ne farkeder
Be quiet; truth, lie - does it matter
Bak bir aşk başlamadan böyle biter
Look, this love ends like that without having started
Kime kime kalır aşk
Who this love will be left for
 
 
Ben bile seni sevdiğimi
Me, knowing my love to you
Bakma git daha ne söylemeli
Don't look, leave, what else has to be said
Yoksun artık bende
You aren't in me anymore
Ne acı bitti gittin
What a pain, it's over, you left
 
 
Yetti o günler bana yetti
Those days were enough for me
Çok çoktan mutlu etti
It made me happy, at most
Birdik bende yerin ah tekti
We were united, your place in me was only one
Bir çocuk bende tükendi
A child in me has vanished
 
 
Yeter demek yetmez ki bazen
Saying "enough" isn't enough sometimes
Ah içimde bir öykü ağıtlarla biter
Now a story in me will end in funeral speech
Güler yüzüme taptığım bir sen
Only you smile to me, the one I adore
Ah içimdeki türkü dudaktan kalbe düşer
This folk song in me falls from lips onto a heart
 
 
Düşer de hani bir gün olur da
Though it falls, a day will come
Azrail bana güler
Angel of death will smile to me
Bir yerde hani bir gün olur da
Somewhere, a day will come
Azrail bana güler...
Angel of death will smile to me
