Singing in Turkish with Sertab: Dönmüyorsun

Time for another Turkish song. This time it won’t be a Tarkan’s song, but a hit from another famour Turkish singer, my favorite - Sertab Erener. The title “Dönmüyorsun” - “You don’t return”. From lyrical point of view, it’s not a very complicated text, but the melody is quite catchy.



Dönmüyorsun

Gün geceye dönüyor
Yarın düne dönüyor
An anıya dönüyor
Ama sen dönmüyorsun

Yağmur buluta dönüyor
Kuşlar yuvaya dönüyor
Sonlar başa dönüyor
Bi tek sen dönmüyorsun

Taş olsaydı kırılırdı yerimde
Oyuncak gibi oynuyorsun benimle

İçtim başım dönüyor
Sen hala dönmüyorsun
Dünya bile dönüyor
Sen inatla dönmüyorsun

İçtim başım dönüyor
Sen hala dönmüyorsun
Dünya bile dönüyor
Sen inatla dönmüyorsun
Dönmüyorsun


Translation
You don’t return

Day turns into night
Tomorrow turns into yesterday
One moment turns into another
But you don't return

The rain return to the cloud
The birds return to the nest
The end returns to the beginning
But you don't return

Even a rock would have broken into pieces in my place
You are playing with me as if I were a toy

Dizzy drank, my head is spinning
You are still not returning
Even the Earth is spinning
Obstinately, you don't return

Dizzy drank, my head is spinning
You still don’t return
Even the Earth is spinning
Obstinately, you don't return
You don't return

Remark
The verb "dönmek" have several meanings, as it may be translated as: "to turn", "to return" and "to spin" and more… The lyrcis of the song reflects these meanings, althought the main idea is that everything returns somehow but he doesn’t return to her...
