If you ask me how is Istanbul
I will keep quiet
In front of you I will put empty page
And show you my desire.
I want you to smell it now and listen carefully
Use this color for fear, paint your demons inside
Get rid of your sore and admit, are you happier now
For this dye you have a small ‘nazar' of mine
Do you know what is it? Protection from a ‘bad eye'
Think that you're never alone, someone is on your side
Yellow, my favorite one, mixed with green is the best
You know what I mean, don't you, my baklava eater
Take a piece and tell me, are you in heaven now
Come back I wanna give you a little bit of my ‘aşk'
Don't be stupid, red is not a blood from my veins
Have you seen Turkish flag? You have one from me
Star and moon and your heart and your courage and dreams
But don't make a mistake, Istanbul never sleeps
Your paint pallet I close with the color of white
I will bring a bit water and put rakı inside
It's just for your creativity, I don't mean anything
Take some ‘meze', close your eyes and start dreaming it,
Now you have all colors
Draw whatever you want
Anything on your page
Is Istanbul and I.
