I have been trying to find out the name of a song that I heard over and over again whilst I was last in Turkey and many on line have helped me. But I have heard that you guys are the music experts so I thought I would give it a try. However, I warn you this is a really vauge di[script]ion.

 

It is sang by a man, he may be in a band or solo but I didnt hear anyone else in it.

 

His name is two words i.e not like Tarkan

 

The title was really short

 

It sounded to me as if it was a rock ballard 

 

I think it was about death, or maybe taking your life (as when I asked what it was about my friend put his finger across his throat as if he was cutting it)

 

It has a repeated piano rift between the chorus which is four notes played over and over and I also think this is how it ends But there is alot of drums also because he was jumping about to it.

 

It sounded very sad and dramatic, but that doesnt really mean much as I dont understand the words.

 

I would be grateful for any help, in the meantime guys I will be searching the web to see if I can figure it out, I am driving myself crazy with this!!! {#lang_emotions_head_bang}

Very mild English ´swear-word´ - its what they call a ´minced oath´ (and I didn´t know this I just looked it up!)

 

It comes from the cockney ´Gawblimey´ which is a ´minced oath´ version of an old English oath ´God Blind Me´  (that bit I did know   )

 

...and that´s your English lesson for today Yasýn!  lol

Sorry my computer went strange, what I meant to say was thanks for all your help on this it was indeed Hayko Cepkin Ölüyorum, so thanks for putting me on the right track but now I want to know what it means and I cant find a translation on the web, would anyone be kind enough to do this for me, if you have time that is... many thanks
