Photographer's Note

Uzun ince bir yoldayım
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Bilmiyorum ne haldeyim
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece
Dünyaya geldiğim anda
Yürüdüm aynı zamanda
İki kapılı bir handa
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

İki kapılı bir handa
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

Düşünülürse derince
Uzak gözükür görünce
Yol bir dakka miktarınca
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

Yol bir dakka miktarınca
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

Şaşar Veysel işbu hale
Gah ağlayan gahi güle
Yetişmek için menzile
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

Yetişmek için menzile
Gidiyorum gündüz gece
Gündüz gece, gündüz gece
Gündüz gece

Aşık Veysel Şatıroğlu


I'm on a long, narrow path
I'm walking on, day and night.
I've lost my sense of self.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.
Ever since the moment I came into this world,
I was walking from the very beginning.
In a caravansary with only two doors.*
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

In a caravansary with only two doors.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

When contemplated deeply,
It seems far away, when looked at.
The road is but a minute long.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

The road is but a minute long.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

Veysel** is confused in this state,
Sometimes crying, sometimes laughing,
On the road to reach my destination.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

On the road to reach my destination.
I'm walking on, day and night,
Day and night, day and night,
Day and night.

* The two doors are referring to the road of life: birth and death.
** Aşık Veysel Şatıroğlu is the original composer of this Turkish folk song.
