about

This song is Djanan's plea to the world which seems to be on a self destruction trail and forgotten about us human beings, their dreams, hopes, struggles.

This song came to Djanan via a dream, hence she felt the responsibility of delivering to others. The video which will be launched on the release date is shot with 10 children, in Adana, her home town.

lyrics

Dünya

Okulunu kitabını talan ettiler
Yatagını döşeğini toza boğdular
Görüyor, gözleri görüyor
Ufacık bedenine sığmaz anıları
Kalbinde delik deşik kaldi yaraları
Yüklenmis zulmünü yürüyor yürüyor

Çocuklara bunu nasıl anlatacaksın
Aklını kacırmadan
Daha dün masallar okuyordun
Hic yüzün kızarmadan

Dünya uzerimizde mi dönüyorsun artık
Aldın altina ezdin nefes alamıyoruz
Sulhla gelmedi adalet kurşunla mı gelecek
Kim nerede yitecek
Elemle bekliyoruz

Kahramanlar meydanda düşmanı unuttuk
Düşmanı bulduk darken arkadan vurulduk
Seziyoruz biz de oyunu

Geleceği buna nasil uyduracaksin simsiyah boyamadan
Daha dün hayaller kuruyorduk hiç sınır tanımadan

Dünya uzerimizde mi dönüyorsun artik
Aldın altına ezdin nefes alamıyoruz
Sulhla gelmedi adalet kurşunla mi gelecek
Kim nerede yitecek
Elemle bekliyoruz

Aşk dönmene yetmedi mi
Çektir çile bitmedi mi
Yamyaş ağaclar yerle bir oldu
Iniltiler yüreğini titretmedi mi
Müebbet mi, süre dolmadı mı
Uykusuz geceler yormadı mı
Gözyaşlarımız nehir oldu
Akan sular yatağını daha bulmadı mı

Dünya üzerimizde mi dönüyorsun artık
Aldın altına ezdin nefes alamıyoruz
Sulhla gelmedi adalet kurşunla mı gelecek
Kim nerede yitecek
Elemle bekliyoruz

Dunya - English Translation

They destroyed her school and books,
Her bed covered in dust
Her eyes see it all

Memories won't fit into her tiny body
All the wounds have left holes in her heart
Carrying your brutality on her back
She keeps walking and walking

How will you explain all this to the children, without losing your mind?
It was only yesterday that you were reading stories, shameless

World, are you now turning on top of us,
Squashed underneath we can't breath
Justice hasn’t come with peace
Now will it come with bullet?
We wait in vain, who will die next, where

All the heros are on the streets
Who was the enemy?
We got stabbed on the back
When we thought we got the enemy
This is a game, we sense it all

How will you fit the future into this
Without painting it pitch black?
It was only yesterday that we were dreaming
Like sky is the limit

World, are you now turning on top of us,
Squashed underneath we can't breath
Justice hasn’t come with peace
Now will it come with bullet?
We wait in vain, who will die next, where

Was love not enough to make you keep turning
Lets keep suffering, is it never ending?
All the youthful trees are on the ground
Dont their cries shatter your heart?

Life sentence? Haven't we done our time yet?
All the sleepless nights, haven’t they tired you yet?
Look at those rivers, made of our tears
Havent they reached the ocean yet?
