Arabic Lyrics

English Translation

Yine sensiz güneþ batıyor  Again without you, the sun is setting
Yine sensiz akþam oluyor  Again without you it is becoming night
Beni bekliyor kederler My grief is waiting for me
Yine gecem hüzün kokuyor Again my night smells of sadness
Heryerde, herþeyde izin var  Everywhere, everywhere are signs of you
Seni anlatır, Everything tells me of you
Hatırlatır bütün þarkılar All the songs remind me of you
Ah! Bu yalnızlık neden? Söyle Ah! Why is this aloneness, tell me
Sensiz nasıl geçecek yıllar? How will the years pass without you?
Nerdesin, kiminlesin? Where are you, who are you with?
Ah! Sevgilim, dön, seni çok özledim Ah my love, return, I miss you a lot
Dönmeyeceksin sen anladım You won't return, I've understood
Ben sensiz, ben sevgisiz Me without you, without love
Nasıl yaþarım? How will I live?
Gözlerim ıslak bekliyorum I am waiting with tears in my eyes
Bir umut ver, ver yalvarırım Give me one hope, give it I beg
Nerdesin, kiminlesin?  Where are you, who are you with?
Ah! Sevgilim, dön, seni çok özledim. Ah my love, return. I miss you a lot.
