OLMASA MEKTUBUN
if i hadn't have your letter

Olmasa mektubun,
Yazdıkların olmasa
Kim inanırdı
Senle ayrıldığımıza.

if i hadn't have your letter,
if your writtens didn't exist
who could believe
that we are seperated


Sanma unutulur,
Kalp ağrısı zamanla
Herşeyi unutarak
Yaşanır sanma.

do not suppose the heartache
gets forgotten in time
with forgetting everything
do not suppose, life can be lived


Neydi bir arada tutan şey ikimizi
Birleştiren neydi ellerimizi
Bırak bana anlatma imkansız sevgimizi
Sevmek birçok şeyi göze almaktır.

what was that hold eachother together
what was that gets our hand together
please do not tell me our impossible love
to love is to take the risk of things


Baksana geçmişe,
Ne çok anıyla yüklü
Nerde o taverna,
Nerde sinema

look at the past,
how much memories it is loaded
where is that tavern
where is that cinema


Harcanmış zamanla
Yeniden yaşanmaz ki;
Geç kaldıktan sonra
Arama boşa!

[/]with the time passed
cant live it again;
after getting too late
do not search for nothing![/I]

Quoting SuiGeneris:

OLMASA MEKTUBUN
if i hadn't have your letter

Olmasa mektubun,
Yazdıkların olmasa
Kim inanır
Senle ayrıldığımıza.

Harcanmış zamanlar
Yeniden yaşanmaz ki;
Geç kaldıktan sonra
Arama boşa!

Yes. I like that song.
However when I listen to it, there are some differences in lyrics. I don't know the original lyrics though. I have shown the differences above.
