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

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 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 release

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

Don't let them win (hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)
Hey now, hey now
Don't let them win (they come, they come)
Don't let them win (hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)

    General Commenta song about God, perhaps. Sixpence none the richer are a Christian band, I believe the song was originally done by crowded house, who I think also had Christian leanings.
    Freedom is provided by God, freedom inside, but Christianity may restrict you from doing something else, denying freedom without, in theory.
    Deluge in a paper cup, perhaps this is referring to when the samaritan woman said to Jesus, "even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the masters table."
    The next bit im not sure on, perhaps it is about the state of the world, battles. The last line of the first verse is still a mystery to me.
    Chorus, just cos u make a mistake and walk with the world dont mean ur relationship with God is over, the enemy will try to set up a wall between us anf God, but we musn't let him suceed.
    I agree with linara about the next verse.
    After this we step out and march on with God, towards his heart for us, what he desires for us, and the liberation and relief provided by it.
    Maybe wrong, just my ideas.
