Song: Eki e Sundaro

This is an original composition by Tagore. I recorded it when I was in in Kolkata with Guha during the Corona lockdown in August 2020.

Music arrangement, keys and percussion by Venky @ SUR Productions studio, Bangalore.

Meaning:

What a glorious sight! 
What a face I behold!
Today the Lord of my heart has come to my abode,
The source of love itself is overflowing!

Tell me o’ Lord of my heart
What treasures can I gift you?
What can I ask you to take?
Whatever I possess, please take it all!

Song : Sword of Fire!






We were listening to the song Sugar Man by Rodriguez when the idea of writing a song on Guha came to me. After I wrote Sword of Fire, Guha asked our friend Venky to score the music for it. Venky took just one day to compose the music! After I came back to India, I went to Venky’s studio in Bangalore and recorded the song there. Guha was present in the studio with us, which made the atmosphere electric!

Lyrics

Sword of Fire

Guha, its your fury
That wiped out all my dreams
Picked me up from the shitland,
And gave me back my wings. 

Sword of fire you carry
Laughter and joy, sweet healing pain
Guha ...

Guha, you’re the one friend
I needed on my boat
Lost my voice, when I found it
You turned it to pure gold.

Sword of fire you carry
Laughter and joy, sweet healing pain
Guha ...

Guha you’re the answer 
That made my questions disappear
Guha, I was weary
Till you came home oh my dear!

Sword of fire you carry
Laughter and joy, sweet healing pain
Guha ...
