Sezen Aksu - Ben kedim yatağım (English translation)

English translation

Me, My Cat, My Bed

I miss waking up in your arms,
Semi unconscious in the mornings,
Without thinking of anything,
Without talking,
Breaking in rush to faraway places,
Then, falling like a dead on the cliffs,
 
Where are you, where's your voice,
The sorrow falling from your eyelash,
Still remains on the ground,
All in vain,
Winnings, successes,
Confirmations that I wished for,
Deprived,
To those who'd question, I'd say "He was right"
 
And darkness,
Burning out curtain by curtain,
Return of day from journey,
Start of the same ceremonial,
 
Place of leaving the life,
Returning with all speed,
During the time while I was watching it,
Night appears and comes,
 
Me, my cat, my bed,
We're so much complainig about you,
 
Where are you, where's your voice,
The sorrow falling from your eyelash,
Still remains on the ground,
All in vain,
Winnings, successes,
Wishing confirmations,
You aren't here,
To those who'd question, I'd say "He was right"
 
And darkness,
Burning out curtain by curtain,
Return of day from journey,
Start of the same ceremonial,
 
Place of leaving the life,
Returning with all speed,
During the time while I was watching it,
Night appears and comes,
 
Me, my cat, my bed,
We're so much complainig about you,
 
And darkness,
Burning out curtain by curtain,
Return of day from journey,
Start of the same ceremonial,
 
Place of leaving the life,
Returning with all speed,
During the time while I was watching it,
Night appears and comes,
 
Me, my cat, my bed,
We're so much complainig about you.

Beautiful translation!
Just a minor observation, the line "Haklıydı diyorum soranlara" - shouldn't that be "..to those who ask" ? Instead of "later". The word is soran, not sonra Regular smile

I love this song! I have some suggestions if you don't mind the input:

Hiçbir şey düşünmeden > Without thinking of anything
Konuşmadan > Without talking

Dilediğim onaylanmalar > Approvals/Confirmations that I wished for
Yoksun > You aren't here
