A new find--Sumru Ağıryürüyen




Lyrics: Murathan Mungan (one of my favorite poets) Composer: Serdar Ateşer

Here are the lyrics (my not-so-successful translation from Turkish to English)

Fall Notebook

Look, a fallen leaf, a fading summer. Look, what is left of my life will be written in it as if it is the story of a third person.
Look, like a fog, like a mist. A love absolute like a ransom, like an extortion. There is no escape for me. I can never leave. I can never break up with anyone. You break up with me. Murder me and leave.
Purple of all the colors, summer of all the seasons and the fall notebook in my hand. There is no escape for me. I can never leave. I can never break up with anyone. You break up with me. Murder me and leave.
Brave in love, coward in break up, I can only understand that everything is over if you leave, like a comet passing over my heart disappearing into the abyss.
