Leaving Istanbul has never been easy. Traveling around is the way I live my life for many years but the Bosphorus and the city is part of me for the rest of my life. Living between two ports, the feeling of staying and leaving and definitely the nostalgia is what this song is about.


"Les fumées noires du Bosphore"

Un bateau bleu et blanc
Dérive entre 2 continents
Son coeur balance
Un jour à l'est, un jour à l'ouest
Il aime le bruit des vagues
Sur le pont qui claquent

Ça balance entre deux ports
Les fumées noires, du Bosphore

Un bateau tout rouillé
Une nouvelle fois s'est mouillé
Dans un port de passage
Un vieux souvenir, un mirage
Il est reparti loin d'ici
En rêvant du Bosphore, m'a ton dit

Ca balance entre 2 ports
Les fumées noires, du Bosphore

Ca balance entre 2 ports
Les fumées noires, du Bosphore

Ca balance entre 2 ports
Les fumées noires, du Bosphore
