Su başında durmuşsun su akar sen bakarsın
Duruşun mağrurda bakışın mahsun
Yüreğinden fışkıran bir şey var dilinin ucunda
Yüreğin aynı duruş cesurda dillerin yorgun

Yüz yaşında bir çocuk gibisin
Kırmızı uçurtması hep aynı ağaçlara takılmış
Tüketilen tek gençlik orda yalnız değilsin
Yaşanmış ve asla unutulmamış

Su başında durmuşsun su akar sen bakarsın
Duruşun aynı duruş bakışında farklısın

You are standing by water, the water is flowing as your are watching
You look proud, but your eyes are sad
There is something blowing out of your heart, you hardly speak it
Your heart is still the same, brave, but your tongue is tired

You are like a child of a hundread years old
Whose red kite is stuck always in the same trees
You are not alone, the only wasted youth is there,
Lived and never forgotten

You are standing by water, the water is flowing as your are watching
You still have the same look, but your eyes are different.
