Istanbul bridge,please take me home.

Take me back to the Anatolian empire,where you used your strength to pull Asia and
Europe together.

Then carried the weight of history and urbanization on your back, you took them to civilization.

Please take me to a land of peace,tourism and productivity,

a land of beauty,liberty and hospitality.

 Istanbul bridge,please take me home.

Take me back to the beginning of Noah's new world,built on hope,justice and promises.

A beginning  that united Man,animals and nature.

A land that oceans boast of,

mountains stand for,

clouds bleed for,

and the sun survives for.

Take me up the hills of Ephesus where Mary slept in peace,
down to the Mediterranean sea that witnessed the war caused by beauty between the Spartans and Trojans.

Take me from the east to the west and from the west to the east,to make new friends overseas. 

From the north to the south and the south to the north,to unite nations across boarders. .
 istanbul bridge,please take me home
