DESCRIPTION

Sari Gelin is a famous Azeri folk song hugely popular around the world, particularly in Turkey, Azerbaijain and the Persian speaking countries (Afghanistan, Iran, Tajikistan) as well as Uzbekistan, Greece, Bosnia and Serbia to name just a few. There are many traditional versions of this hauntingly emotional melody. This is our humble attempt at creating an English version of this beautiful love song based loosely on translations from the original variations.

LYRICS

Sari Gelin

I fight for a love
Knowing it can’t be won
Sent from a light above
Child of our golden Sun
O, golden bride

I reach for hands
Knowing they can’t be held
Cursed by words I can’t tell
Broken under your spell
O, golden bride

And like a rose
Turning in to thorns
My love was taken
Back to the light above
What can I do, my love?
Child of our Golden Sun
O, golden bride

A beating drum
Searches on for your song
Echoes will carry on
Wondering where you’ve gone
O, golden bride

Is that your voice
Caught in the mountain air?
Leading me to nowhere
Drifting in silent prayer
O, golden bride

And like a rose
Turning in to thorns
My love was taken
Back to the light above
What can I do, my love?
Child of our Golden Sun
O, golden bride

Saçın ucun hörməzlər
Gülü sulu dərməzlər
Sarı Gəlin
Saçın ucun hörməzlər
Gülü qönçə dərməzlər
Sarı Gəlin

(The ends of your long hair are not meant to be woven
The flower-buds are not to be plucked
O, golden bride)

Bu sevda nə sevdadır
Səni mənə verməzlər
Neynim aman, aman
Neynim aman, aman
Sarı Gəlin

(What kind of love is this?
They will not give you to me
Oh, what can I do?
Oh, what should I do?
O, golden bride)


Back to the light above
What can I do, my love?
Child of our Golden Sun
O, golden bride
