White Night   

Lyrics: Mehmet Güreli
Music and Arrangement: Tanju Duru

A long white night, in myst.
In a blind corner begins time,
The familiar stars…
I am alone in an endless dream
Memories are distant.
I return to you again, silently

As time melts in mist,
Withdrawn  loves
Hold with faded dreams on to the naked
face of the earth.
I see hands again,
Wiping away the dreams.
I return to you again, silently
 
Years accumulate in front of me in mist.
Nights woven without sleep grow long
Into the days.
Days go by.
A voice remains
From that white night.
I return to you again, silently

Mirabilis (The evening blooming four o’clock flower)

Lyrics: Sumru Ağıryürüyen
Music: Özgür Salıcı

Passionately in love was the mirabilis
In love with the day
Attached was the mirabilis
Attached to the day
If she saw, if only she could see
If she knew, if only she could know
Unfortunately she was very shamed
 
 
Blown away was the mirabilis
Blown away into the day
The day was born mirabilis
The day was born, she became ash
It rained ashes, it rained roses
Filling silently the wineglass of the night

  Fall Journal  

Lyrics: Murathan Mungan
Music: Serdar Ateşer

A falling leaf
A fading summer, look
The fall journal
What remains of my life will be written in this, look
Like a story that has passed through some other’s eyes
 
Like a mist
Like a fog, look
Like a blood money
A love as certain as a racket
There is no rescue for me
I can never leave
I can not desert anyone
Let it be you to desert me
Kill me and leave me
 
Purple of the colors
Summer of the seasons
The fall journal in my hand
There is no salvation for me
I can never leave
I cannot desert anyone
Let it be you to desert me
Kill me and leave me
 
Courageous in love,
Cowardly in separation
Only if you leave will I understand
That everything has ended
Like a comet thrown to the void over my heart

 Solitude

Words & Music: Sumru Ağıryürüyen

So solitary is my aloneness
The sound of a skittish step
Echoes in my farthest cell
 
I’m in a multicolored darkness
Is it light beyond?
Or deep dark?
 
A spell…
A spell is needed…
A make believe flame,
So I can become a moth
and turn and whirl
And burn

     Conversation With Sappho     

Lyrics: Meltem Ahıska
Music: Bülent Somay

The moon is off, and then the stars
Half the night is gone
Time is passing by.
 
Love walked away, as she caressed herself
It was many and many a year ago
The moon is off and then the stars
Half the night is gone.
 
The heavens above rested in peace.
 
Love is on, and then the stars
Time gives us a break
Roses come of age

 I Was So Hungry

Lyrics: Sumru Ağıryürüyen
Music: Tanju Duru

I was so hungry
I couldn’t bear it, I stole the sun
My tongue burned
 
So hungry, so hungry was I
I couldn’t wait, I took a bite
From the moon
Don’t believe me?
Look at the sky…
 
     The Deserted City      

 Lyrics: Sumru Ağıryürüyen
Music: Ayşe Tütüncü

The market of the deserted city was set up yesterday
The shore on the other side is far, now it is farther
The border stones are heavy
 
The market of the deserted city was set up yesterday
Your pasts in the hand of their new owners
 
The market of the deserted city was set up yesterday
Your pasts in the hand of their new owners
The past, mute, was written to a new story
 
Talk Mediterannean Sea, talk
There is so much unsaid

 Earth     

Lyrics and Music: Sumru Ağıryürüyen
Düzenleme: Tanju Duru

The earth, cool was the earth
The earth, your skin was the earth
My hair held on to the deep
Stars flew into my eyes

The earth, cool was the earth
