04. Don't Dream It's Over

Divine Discontent
by Sixpence None The Richer


There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win

Behind the Song:
'My first introduction to the inimitable and brilliant songwriting of Neil Finn was hearing 'Don't Dream It's Over' on the radio in my early teens, and I became an instant Crowded House fan. In covering such a pop classic there is always the challenge of answering the question - how can we possibly make this any better? The challenge is especially difficult when the production minds of Mitchell Froom and Chad Blake have crafted the arrangement and sonics on such a high level. Producer Rob Cavallo and Alan Sides came to the table and helped the band to deliver a version that I hope will make Neil proud. I think Leigh Nash's passionate vocal is what makes Sixpence's version ultimately unique; the phrasing and range of Neil's melody fit her voice perfectly.' - Matt Slocum (Sixpence None The Richer)

'I have been inspired by the beauty and simplicity of Neil Finn's voice for a long time. Recording 'Don't Dream It's Over' was a pleasure for me and I hope we've done the song justice.' - Leigh Nash (Sixpence None The Richer)
