Engel Var

This is my favorite song from the Turkish show, Ihlamurlar Altinda ("Below The Lime Tree"). The song name is "Engel Var" by Turkish singer Dilek Türkan.

P.S. I recommend listening to other work by Dilek Türkan, great and powerful, yet very warm and emotional voice, in addition to the excellent composition of combining all genres to Oriental music.

The lyrics of the song "Engel Var" are:

Kaybolan bir gün gibiyim,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am just like a day which is lost.
Geçiverdi seneler,~~~~~~~~~~~~ The years passed
Geçiverdi seneler,~~~~~~~~~~~~ The years passed
Seneler,seneler...~~~~~~~~~~~~ years, years...

Bir mum gibi eriyorum, ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am melting like a wax
Bu dünyadan göçüyorum...~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am going from this world

Bir derdim var dermansızdır,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have a problem, there is no remedy
Bir aşkım var ümitsizdir,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have love, it is hopeless
Bir derdim var dermansızdır,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have a problem, there is no remedy
Bir aşkım var çaresizidir...~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have love, it has no remedy

Seni sevememki,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I can not love you
Seni saramam ki,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I can not hug you
Senin olamam ki,~~~~~~~~~~~~ I can not be yours
Buna engel var..~~~~~~~~~~~~ there is difficulty to this....

Thank you for the translation. I am a big fan of this series but I don't understand Turkish.. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also loved the asi series and would love a translation of the songs in that. :)
