Warning: I made this in like, a half hour after inspiration struck. I have never posted anything like this before so I’m a bit nervous. I can’t really sing and there isn’t music and it was recorded on my phone and the rhythm is probably off, but I kind of like it so I’m just gonna go ahead and post this.
I figured there needed to be an actual Gt song, so here we go.
Bit by bit, I’m falling under your spell
Your smile’s all I need to see to know we’ll
Leave this endless darkness, saying, “Come along with me!” Hold my hand
Back when you first came into my life,
I recalled a place that I knew as a child: a special place, one that I held close to my heart
Won’t you lead me in a dance down this winding road,
Where light and shadow entwine to take hold of the thoughts of the one left far behind?
Know that sometimes, I want to turn around and see the things that I’ve passed on the journey,
But know with love on my side, with courage and pride, I’ll fight; I will carry on
Bit by bit, I’m falling under your charm
You’ll keep me and all the world far from harm
Bring hope to everyone; take in your hands eternity
Even when it seems that I don’t need you,
Just know that I am in love; can’t wait to
Leave this endless darkness. Won’t you come along with me? Hold my hand

I finally know just enough Turkish to write really bad translations of song lyrics (English -> Turkish):
Alexander Hamilton Benim adın Alexander Hamilton Ve var bir milyon şeyler ben değil yapılmış Ama beklemelisin, beklemelisin…
Which you all know as
Alexander Hamilton My name is Alexander Hamilton And there’s a million things I haven’t done But just you wait, just you wait…
Editorial decisions that were made:
1) I didn’t “translate” Alexander’s name (even though there’s a Turkish equivalent), because translating a common name in one culture into a common name in another does little for conveying meaning.
2) I didn’t even try to maintain the prosody because, lol, I am sooo not at that level yet. I’m surprised I could do this at all - doing it while maintaining the musical flow would be impossible for me at this point.
3) Extremely questionable translations. Like, so, so questionable. Probably fake. Like, I think I can use “ben değil yapılmış” as “I have not done/accomplished”? Or maybe it’s “I have not made”? Or maybe I’m completely wrong. ~~language learning~~
4) I was a cheating cheater who cheats. I only realised the word I needed for “just you wait” was “beklemelisin” (lit. “you need to wait”) after a dictionary search, because everything else felt off. To be honest, this is still kind of off (and possibly just wrong; lol), but it’s what I’m going with.
Final verdict: I am going to look at this next month and be horribly embarrassed. But, like, I only started learning Turkish three days ago, so no judging. Languages are hard, even with hyperfocus >.<
