This song is about the legendary star crossed lovers, Sassi & Punnu. They live in separate villages on two sides of a mountain, i.e. the dungar. Sassi then sings to the dungar to ensure there are no obstacles in her path as she wants to cross over right away & is dying to meet her lover. Through this song, Clinton almost magically marries two very different styles of music, i.e. Sawan Khan and the Gospel Choir. In fact, Clinton uses a 31-piece choir to give this song a genuine Gospel vibe.

Song Synopsis:
From the ends of the earth I call to you,
Call as my heart grows faint,
From the ends of the earth I call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed,
Lead me, Lead me, lead me to the rock,
Lead me, lead me, lead me to the rock that is higher than I,
Higher than I, higher than I,

Dungar Dukh na de,
Adaa de,
Pand pachadi aaya.
Dungar Dukh na de,
Adaa de,
Pand pachadi aaya
Dungar Dukh na de,

Hear my cry,
hear my voice, lift me up,
I call to you,
Lord, In your house I long to dwell, in your presence I sing

Chad da si jabbal chot te, Bhalom jaani Khan miya
Chad da si jabbal chot te, Sassi saathan ke bai saade
Adda de

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
Long as my heart goes free,
From the ends of the earth I call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed,
Lead me, Lead me, lead me to the rock,
Lead me, lead me, lead me to the rock that is higher than I,

Meaning:

The song is a beautiful amalgamation of spiritual love with that of the earthly love legends of Sassi and
Punnu, a tragic folktale of unfulfilled romantic destiny of "Sassi", a daughter of a king of Bhamboor (who
was abandoned right after birth by her parents, but was later found and adopted by a washer man of
this same village) and "Punnu", who was the son of king from Baluchistan.

Poet says just as Sassi called for her love from one end of the mountain that separated the two
called "Dungar" to reach out to her husband and love Punnu, after they were separated right after their
marriage, I call you, my lord, from this earth, as I am awake and have tasted the pleasure of your love. I
implore you to take my soul to a higher plane...for I am tired of this petty existence and the pain of this
separation from you. I long to live in your peaceful abode and sing in your praise.

The Poet says I have seen the world and its devious ways, I want to take the journey to you, no matter
how tough it is, just as Sassi undertook the arduous journey from one end of the village to the other
and walked for miles before she breathed her last in her pursuit of love. All I request is for you to help
ensure that no obstacle ever hampers my journey to you...my Lord...my love.
