The more I learn the ways of love,
the more this anxious self dissolves.
Wherever I look, You’re all I see.
It’s You within, it’s You I need.

Your hands have taken me from myself,
Your voice has sung within my soul.
Your medlody has filled this reed.
It’s You within, its You I need.

Our lives are shaped by loving hands,
yet we attach our own demands.
In these two worlds I’m incomplete.
It’s You I love, it’s You I need.

Ashkin aldi, benden beni.
Bana seni, gerek seni.
Ben yanarim, dunu gunu.
Bana seni, gerek seni.

Ne varilya sevinerim.
Ne yoklu’a yerinerim.
Askin ile avunaram.
Bana seni, gerek seni.

Yunus durur benim adim
Gun gechtikche artar odum.
Iki jihanda maksudum.
Bana seni, gerek seni.

Ashkin Aldi – Yunus Emre
