about

These two songs which fuse American Soul music with Turkish traditional and pop musics were composed by Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol in early 1997 as part of a larger Turkish pop music album project. That album was recorded in the Spring of 1997 however, it was never released. This past Summer Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol found the original ADAT tapes in the basement of his parents' house and transferred these two pieces onto digital platform in order to release them after 17 years.

Track Name: Hatam ne? / Where did I go wrong?
lyrics by Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol

HATAM NE?
Yalnızlıktan sıkıldım derken aynaya
Pek biçimsiz aksetmiş şeklim oraya
Derdim derman bilmez Tanrım Senden olmaya
Çare diler gönlüm Senden, hatam af ola

Bana biraz yardım eyle gayrı dayanmam
Sevdiğim dön bana daha sabretmem
Hatam ne söylesen rahat edecem

Gökte güneş geldin bana son gün olsa da
Yollar bitmek bilmedi bir kez olsa da
Pek aldattı güzel yüzün ve o gülüşün
Yalanmış meğer hepsi buna üzüldüm

Sebep ne anlasam gayrı sıkılmam?
Sevdiğim dön...

WHERE DID I GO WRONG?
As I said to the mirror, 'I’m tired of being alone'
My ugly reflection stared back at me
There is no cure for my sorrow. Is it because of you, God?
My soul begs for Your help. Forgive my failure.

Help me out a bit here, as I can’t take this anymore.
My love, return to me, I've lost all patience
Where did I go wrong? Tell me and I'll be relieved.

You came on a sunny day even if it was the last day.
Even if it was just that one time we walked for hours,
Your beautiful face and smile fooled me
Too bad, turns out it was all a lie

Had I known why, I wouldn’t be upset
My love...
Track Name: Aşkı öğrendim senden / From you I learned what love is
lyrics by Onur Türkmen

AŞKI ÖĞRENDİM SENDEN
Günler aylar yıllar bitse
Sözler eriyip tükense yarim
Gökte yıldızlar bile sönse
Güneş yüzünü leyle dönse sevdiğim

Korkarım vallah kederinden
Korkarım gülmez gözlerin bir gün yeniden
Aşkı öğrendim senden

Ümit nedir bilmezdim ben
Sır-ı hayatı görmezdim ben yarim
Ben sevinci sende gördüm
ilk buseyi senden aldım sevdiğim

Korkarım...

Biliyorum yaşamı sersek önümüze
Farkı yok görüyorum, gülmek ve ağlamanın
Ama hayat herşeyin ötesinde
Sımsıcak seninle sımsıcak sevdiğim

FROM YOU I LEARNED WHAT LOVE IS
If days months years should pass
And all words get used up my love,
If the stars in the sky should disappear
And the sun was to turn its face into the night my darling

Honestly, I am afraid of your sorrow
I am afraid your eyes will never light up again
From you I learned what love is

I had no idea what hope meant
And did not know the secret of life my love,
I discovered happiness with you
And received my first kiss from you my darling

Honestly...

I know that if life lasts nothing but a minute
I would see that there was no difference between laughing and crying
Yet life is beyond everything
Warmer with you my darling
