elvis presley - its now or never (1960) - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkMVscR5YOo And I think this Turkish sentence could mean "It's now or never" too.

Could you also say "simdi yoksa asla" since it is an either or statement?

If I'm not mistaken, yoksa is for questions only.

"Ever" needs a negative word in the sentence (for example, "He does not ever pay back his debts") to have this meaning.

Otherwise, you need "never".

In fact, "ever" is very rarely used outside of negative or question sentences, or perhaps poetry.
