President Erdoğan, who gave a speech to the kids having participated in this significant event, read the Turkish translation of the chorus part of the lyrics written by Turgay Evren. The lyrics of the song are below:

TODAY I WILL NOT DIE

Today I will not cry
Today I will be happy
Today I will not die
Today my land is Turkey

Dreams were my home
The jets hijacked                                                                                                                                     Green was my land
Before the sunset
I will not give up
I will leave behind
Blood and death
My orphan heart is my best friend
My smile sets my path

We are the children of heaven
Our love will beat all the weapons
We are the roses of all seasons
We are all brothers and sisters
We deserve a world much better

We are the children of heaven
Our love will beat all the weapons
Compassion will conquer all the vengeance
We are all brothers and sisters
We deserve a world much better

Today I will not complain
Today I will be content
Today I got no space for pain
Hope will spread to every tent

My toys are bombs
Raining from the skies
Human rights are a song
Composed with white lies
My soul will not starve
Hope will not drown
In the sea of blame
My heart will not go lame
My innocence will rise again

Dreams were my home
The jets hijacked
Green was my land
Before the sunset
I will not give up
I will leave behind
Blood and death
My orphan heart is my best friend
My smile sets my path

We are the children of heaven
Our love will beat all the weapons
We are the roses of all seasons
We are all brothers and sisters
We deserve a world much better

We are the children of heaven
Our love will beat all the weapons
Compassion will conquer all the vengeance
We are all brothers and sisters
We deserve a world much better
