Orhan Ölmez -
Senden Vazgeçtim
[I gave up on you]


Ben kendime yanmayı kestim anladım zamanla
With time, I understood that I've stopped pitying myself
Gül bahçesi yapmaya kalktım bir avuç samanla
I've tried to make a rose garden with a handful of hay
 
 
Olmayacak duaya amin dedim nerden bilirdim
I said amen to a prayer that wasn't meant to come true, how did I know
Doğmayacak sabaha hevesle kendimden geçtim
I was impatiently waiting for a morning that won't come
 
 
Boşver dedi kalbim kendimi azat ettim
My heart said: forget it, I've set myself free
Sonsuz sevecektim birazcık sevseydin
I was going to love forever if only you loved a bit
Ama senden vazgeçtim
But I gave up on you
 
 
Yangın yeri kalbim ne alevler söndürdüm
My heart is a place of fire, I've extinguished such flames
Dipsiz kuyularda ne ümitler büyüttüm
I was raising such hopes in the bottomless wells
Ama senden vazgeçtim...
But I gave up on you
