Sertab Erener, the winner of Eurovision 2003, has released a new single called “Soz” (Promise). The third video release of her latest album “Sade” (Simple), it features a nice ethno-Turkish sound and explores themes of love and romantic obsession.

As you can see in this translation of the chorus, Miss Erener is making a lot of promises to the one she loves:

I will never make you cry
I promise, I promise
I will never, will never bear down on you
I promise, I promise
I will never broach those subjects
I promise, I promise
I will never, will never make you angry
I promise, I promise

Apparently love needs fuel, as Sertab makes these promises in just two locations in the video: a gas station and a car. Sertab pumps gas alone—and looks amazing in a red dress. But she shares her promises with a group of friends in the car as they drive, dance and sing. Let’s hope they kept their eyes on the road. As Sertab knows, love requires commitment…

SERTAB ERENER – “SOZ” (PROMISE) LYRICS

Bir daha seni arayip neredesin demeyecegim
Yalnizim ben dediginde kiminlesin demeyecegim
Bir baskasi oluyorum ben kiskandigimda
Ne olur bu seferlik affet kirmayacagim bir daha

Bir daha asla hic seni uzmeyecegim (I will never make you cry)
Soz, soz (I promise, I promise)
Bir daha, bir daha ustune gelmeyecegim (I will never, will never bear down on you)
Soz, soz (I promise, I promise)
Bir daha asla o konulara girmeyecegim (I will never broach those subjects)
Soz, soz (I promise, I promise)
Bir daha, bir daha yok yere germeyecegim (I will never, will never make you angry)
Soz, soz (I promise, i promise)

Doktorlara sordum ne var bilinc altimda
Sevmeyi bi ogrenmedim ben cocuklugumda

Bir daha asla hic seni uzmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha, bir daha ustune gelmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha asla o konulara girmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha, bir daha … hadi
Soz, soz

Son bir sans ver
Sil bastan yap
Yeniden olayim
Hatalarim var
Dikeni var
Gul olup acayim

Ben yolumu kaybederim elimi birakirsan
Nefesimi tutar beklerim opmezsen, koklamazsan

Bir daha asla hic seni uzmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha, bir daha ustune gelmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha asla o konulara girmeyecegim
Soz, soz
Bir daha, bir daha … hadi
