|When he first cried his mother died
 +
I had tried to be his guide
 +
when he was born I was too young
 +
the father searches for the son
 +
in Istanbul
 +
give him back to me
 +
Istanbul, give me back my brown-eyed son
 +
 
 +
Moonlight jumping through the trees
 +
sunken eyes avoiding me
 +
from dawn to dusk the hunt is on
 +
the father searches for the son
 +
in Istanbul
 +
give him back to me
 +
Istanbul, give me back my brown-eyed son
 +
 
 +
On secret streets in disbelief
 +
Little Shadow shows the lead
 +
Prostitutes stylish and glum
 +
in amongst them you are one
 +
oh, what have I done?
 +
 
 +
Rolling breathless off the tongue
 +
The vicious street gang slang
 +
I lean into a box of pine
 +
identify the kid as mine.
