Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır



Erdem Bayazıt



They have gone

Only our word remains

Now here I am

Like a bullet straight, steady

Ready to go


Here I stand firmly

Between life and death

On this minute stretch of time

Taut and punctual as tomorrow


Now here I am

Waiting to be

Confirmed by our pledge


They have gone

They were like good news
