All your guesses are correct.
-ul is the passive voice suffix (yapmak - to do, yapılmak - to be done, etc)
bi' is short for bir (always pronounced like that in colloquial language)
bunun sonu - the end of this

I don't think so. Turkish dere meaning "valley" comes from Persian دره but I'm not sure if dere meaning "creek" is the result of semantic drift, or is an unrelated homophone of Turkic origin. Turkish does have derya (from Persian دریا , source of the Urdu word) and nehir is cognate to Urdu نہر (ultimately from Arabic).

pırıldıyor - to twinkle; GT gives the infinitives parıldamak and parlamak; maybe the first ı is a typo?
silinmiş - ?
aman - oh!, mercy, quarter (I assume the first meaning here)
-sin-, -sın- - ?
-se sanki - as if
Saim wrote:So the literal meaning of bunun sonu çok zarar would be 'the end of this hurts a lot' (and 'before all this hurts you' is just a more poetic way to translate it in the context of the song)?

It's used in Serbian too (as an interjection) no?

I wish materials like this (natural interviews with native speakers supplemented with transcripts) were available for more languages, and became a standard in language learning. Easylanguages is another cool project that implements this idea; unfortunately it only has a couple videos for Turkish.
