    Red face Mümin Sarıkaya - Hayat <3

    Ben yoruldum haya gelme üstüme,
    Diz çöktüm dünyanın namert yüzüne,
    Gözümden gönlümden düşen düşene,
    Bu öksüz başıma göz dağı verme.
    Ben yanıldım hayat vurma yüzüme
    Yol verdim sevdanın en delisine,
    O yüzden ömrümden giden gidene,
    Şu yalnız başımı eğdirme benim.
    Ben pişmanım hayat sorguya çekme,
    Dilersen infaz et kar etmez dilime,
    Sözlerim ağırdır dokunur kalbe,
    Şu suskun ağzımı açtırma benim.

    Here you go

    Mümin Sarıkaya - Hayat // Mümin Sarıkaya - Life

    Ben yoruldum hayat gelme üstüme, // I'm tired now, life, don't push me any harder.
    Diz çöktüm dünyanın namert yüzüne, // I've knelt down before the cowardly world,
    Gözümden gönlümden düşen düşene, // More and more (people) have been losing favour with me,
    Bu öksüz başıma göz dağı verme. // Don't threaten this lone soul.
    Ben yanıldım hayat vurma yüzüme // I was wrong, life, don't hold it against me,
    Yol verdim sevdanın en delisine, // I gave way to the deepest and craziest of love,
    O yüzden ömrümden giden gidene, // Hence more and more people have been walking out of my life,
    Şu yalnız başımı eğdirme benim. // Don't make this lone soul bow down.
    Ben pişmanım hayat sorguya çekme, // I am regretful, life, don't give me the third degree,
    Dilersen infaz et kar etmez dilime, // You can execute me if you will, but it wouldn't keep me from talking,
    Sözlerim ağırdır dokunur kalbe, // My words are sharp, they hurt the heart,
    Şu suskun ağzımı açtırma benim. // Don't make me open this silent mouth of mine.


    I preferred not to make a literal translation here because the song has a really deep meaning. I tried to convey the meaning as much as I can, and hope that I've managed it
