Aranıyor sahibi ruhumun
Tam yerine mi düştüm
Direniyor faili tutkunun
Kızmış ve küçülmüş
Aranıyor sahibi ruhumun
Tam yerine mi düştüm
Direniyor
Direniyor
Direniyor..

Beni büyütün
Ağlatmayın
Sevginiz nerde
Övündüğünüz
Beni büyütün
Ağlatmayın
Sahte düşlerle
Oyalamayın

Bir yarım akıllı bir yarım deli
Dört yanım akıllı bir yanım deli
Herkes akıllı bir ben deli
Bir ben deli..

Beni büyütün
Ağlatmayın
Sevginiz nerde
Övündüğünüz
Beni büyütün
Aldatmayın

sahte düşlerle..


The group Mor ve Ötesi were internally chosen by Turkish broadcaster TRT, and will represent Turkey at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Deli.
Mor Ve Ötesi was established in January of 1995 by Kerem Kabadayı (drums), Harun Tekin (vocals/guitar), Derin Esmer (vocals/guitar) and Alper Tekin (bass), four close high school friends in Istanbul, Turkey.

In 1997, the first line-up change took place with Burak Güven replacing Alper Tekin on bass. In 1998, Derin Esmer left the band and was replaced by Kerem Özyeğen on guitar.

Mor Ve Ötesi have recorded five albums during the period 1996-2006, all of which have enjoyed much success and various awards.On the stage, the groupcontinued to headline major festivals and shows in Turkey. To name one, it opened up the international Radarlive 2007 festival which was host to29 foreign acts and headlined by Marilyn Manson, James and Groove Armada. Mor Ve Ötesi also did a special acoustic performance for MTV Turkey at the niche Istanbul club Ghetto, which was aired as a special broadcast by the network. Four songs from this concertwere released alongside other Rakun recording artists on a special label promo CD which was includedin the february issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

On the international arena, the band had played15 sell out shows in Germany between 2004 and 2007 in citiessuch asBerlin, Bochum, Köln, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, and one in the Netherlands.
