I Loved A Boy

Versions: #1#2
I saw a boy far away,
His eyes mournful, even fearful.
Despite everything for a split second the boy smiled
Warm, simple but a little suspicious
 
I loved a boy far away,
I supposed this was his yearning too.
However he, with his one stare, stripped me
Off my veils, merely merely by his feelings
 
I have not seen such a heart, such a love
Now a boy grows day by day
He caressed all sorrows one by by,
Coiling up to a secret hope, a little resentful.
 
I saw a boy far away,
I little boyish, a little manlike, a little nobody.
In his hands wet* time bouquets,
He chose a path that has not been taken before.
 
I loved a boy far away,
Tomorrow in one hand, yesterday on the other.
Due to getting old prematurely, he seems a little sad,
He laughes away, looking at world condition.
 
I have not seen such a heart, such a love
Now a boy grows day by day
He caressed all sorrows one by by,
Coiling up to a secret hope, a little resentful.
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

*In Turkish, the words for wet and old (for individuals, not objects) are homonymous. In his case, both translations make sense. Aksu plays with the meanings of words, adding to the beauty of this song.
