Destina Translation

Last night, while you were asleep
I whispered your name
and told you the awful stories
of animals


Last night, when you were asleep
I watered my flowers
and I told them the awful stories
of man

Last night when you were asleep
my heart set a bond with you
and this being the reason
I gave a new name to you

Destina

With you sleeping in one corner helplessly
one step closer to death than life
Shattered and downtrodden, Destina
I will reveal to you all my secrets

 

This is just badly written lyrics with some inconsistencies. Direct translation would expose them.

The music is good though.

Quoting vineyards

Is this the reason for posting this translation among General/Off-topics?

 

Strange, what I´ve read is that many of Yeni Türkü´s lyrics "are based on poems of critically acclaimed contemporary Turkish poets". This song must be an exception.

 

Thanks anyway

It is just a personal opinion. The lyrics were written by Lale Müldür who seems to have a good following. Here is the wiki link:
