English translation:sweetheart
Explanation:
The sunset fell on our love
(This is a very poetic use of language, usually we talk about 'güneş vurmak', or the rays of the sun hitting something, not sunset. The effect here is to stress the sudden ending)
Its first pains were more than our hearts could bear
The moonlight asked our song
(I don't really understand that sentence myself)
I say it isn't over, sweetheart
