Bu Şehri Bırakmak To Leave This City

Bu şehirde yağmur altında dolaşılır
Limandaki mavnalara bakıp
Şarkılar mırıldanılır geceleri.
Bu şehrin sokakları çoktur,
Binlerce insan gelir gider sokaklarında..
Her akşam çayımı getiren
Ve bir Beyaz Rus olmasına rağmen
Hoşuma giden garson kadın bu şehirdedir.

Bu şehirdedir
Valsler, foksrotlar altında
Suman'dan, Bramsdan
Parçalar çaldıgı zaman dönüp
Bana bakan ihtiyar piyanist.

Dogduğum köye müşteri taşıyan
Şirket vapurları bu şehirdedir.
Hatıralarim bu şehirdedir.
Sevdiklerim,
Ölmüşlerimin mezarları.

Bu şehirdedir işim gücüm,
Ekmek param.
Fakat bütün bunlara mukabil
Yine budur başka bir şehirdeki
Bir kadın yüzünden
Bıraktığım şehir.

This is the city to walk around in the rain
Staring at the barges in the harbor
And to hum songs through the night.
The city has countless streets
Bustling with people running around...
The waitress who brings me my tea every evening
And whom I like a lot although she's a White Russian
Is in this city.

The old pianist who turns around
To look at me
When he sneaks in pieces by Schumann and Brahms
While playing waltzes and foxtrot
Is also in this city.

The ferry boats that caryy passengers
To the village where I was born are in this city.
So are my memories,
All those I love,
And the graves of my loved ones.

This is the city where I have a job,
Where I earn my bread money.
And yet, in spite of all this,
This is the same city I'm leaving
Because of a woman
In another city.
