Sunset - Nitin Sawhney at Coke Studio @ MTV

Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

Sunset is a song about rising up and standing up for oneself. It’s about keeping the faith that dusk is followed by bright, flaming dawn. It’s also about keeping one’s head above the water and never losing faith in oneself. And never hesitating to stand up for what one believes is right.

 

This song is loosely based on Nitin’s life in South Africa, where he went to school. The song showcases an element of alienation that one feels in a strange, new land. And the clashes that are inevitable because of power equations that form when different cultures come together.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

 

Apute Jodi aami theme jetam

Shesh bikele moto osh hoye jetam

Asheem rateir shej shoyone

Shurjer shate aami ghumiye jetam

Shurjer shate aami ghumiye jetam


 

Keep Moving

Keep Changing

Keep flowing with the sun

Oceans rise

Rivers rise

People rise with the sun

If I were never to leave you

If I were always alone

If I would never to see you

If I could set with the sun

If I could set with the sun


 

Tears falling

Rain falling

Leaves are falling with the sun

Lives drifting

Seeds drifting

Worlds drifting with the sun

If I were never to leave you

If I were always alone

If I were never to see you

If I could set with the sun

If I could set with the sun


 

Apute Jodi aami theme jetam

Shesh bikele moto osh hoye jetam

Asheem rateir shej shoyone

Shurjer shate aami ghumiye jetam

Shurjer shate aami ghumiye jetam


 

If I were never to leave you

If I were always alone

If I would never to see you

If I could set the sun


 

Never to leave here

Always alone

Woooo wow o wooo

 


Oceans rise

Rivers rise

People rise

With the sun

Oceans rise

Rivers rise

People rise

With the sun


 

Apute Jodi aami theme jetam

Shesh bikele moto osh hoye jetam

Asheem rateir shej shoyone

Shurjer shate aami ghumiye jetam
