Vachan - Nitin Sawhney at Coke Studio @ MTV

This song is a poem written by Nitin's mother. The poem simply talks about how people make fake promises. Samidha Joglekar and Nicki Wells sing harmonies while Mahesh’s unique aalaps add a surreal texture and color to the song. Nitin also uses the electric guitar for the first time in the set.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

 

Log tootthe taron se
Vachan lete hain
Khud vachan karte hain
Aur tod dete hain
Bevafaon ki toh


Aadat hi aisi hai
Mohabbat karke bhi
Muh mod lete hain.

 

Log tootthe taron se
Vachan lete hain
Khud vachan karte hain
Aur tod dete hain
Bevafaon ki toh


Aadat hi aisi hai
Mohabbat karke bhi
Muh mod lete hain.



Yeh chulbuli baten
Chanchal si najren
Nakhrali adaayain
Yeh manchali chalen
Pyar Karne valo
Samhalna seekho
Bada dard hota hai
Tootthe jee ko.

 

Log tootthe taron se
Vachan lete hain
Khud vachan karte hain
Aur tod dete hain
Bevafaon ki toh


Aadat hi aisi hai
Mohabbat karke bhi
Muh mod lete hain.


Log tootthe taron se
Vachan lete hain
Khud vachan karte hain
Aur tod dete hain
Bevafaon ki toh


Aadat hi aisi hai
Mohabbat karke bhi
Muh mod lete hain.

 

 

Log tootthe taron se
Vachan lete hain
Khud vachan karte hain
Aur tod dete hain.
