I had heard this song a month back in a music market where it was played in high pitch…i had really liked it at the time but later on somehow i totally forgat about it…Again tonight while watching a tv. series (Aşk-ı Memnu), the calming melody of the song just filled my ear taking me under its charm. It is the new song of Sertab Erener (Eurovision winner singer u know!). The song title is “Bu böyle ~This is how it is” And the theme is totally about love!

You can listen to the song here with some scenes from that tv. series i talked about. I tried to translate the song struggling to give the exact meanings duly. Hope it can render the significant points at least…Enjoy! 😀

O zaman aşık olduğum rüzgarlar esti esti. Geçti!

The winds which i fell for then blew and passed away!
