Sixpence None the Richer

Sixpence None the Richer (also known as Sixpence) is an American rock/pop band that formed in New Braunfels, Texas, eventually settling in Nashville, Tennessee. They are best known for their songs "Kiss Me" and "Breathe Your Name" and their covers of "Don't Dream It's Over" and "There She Goes". The name of the band is inspired by a passage from the book Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis. more »

Dreams  inconsistent angel things. 
Horses bred with star laced wings. 
But it's so hard to make them fly  fly  fly. 
These wings beat the night sky 'bove the town. 
One goes up and one goes down. 
And so the chariot hits the ground  bound  bound. 

We have forgotten (don't try to make me fly) 
How it used to be (I'll stay here  I'll be fine). 
How it used to be (don't go and let me down) 
How it used to be (I'm starting to like this town). 

When wings beat the night sky 'bove the ground, 
Will I unwillingly shoot them down 
With all my petty fears and doubts, down, down? 

We have forgotten (am I in love with this?) 
How it used to be (my constant broken ship) 
How it used to be (don't go, I'll shoot you down), 
How it used to be (I'm starting to like this town).
