Soundtrack Saturday


You know how sometimes you listen to a band for years and then suddenly click what it is they’re singing about? This is one of those.

Sixpence None The Richer – Breathe Your Name

Apparently the clue is in the band name, but only if you’ve read the right book:

It comes from a book by C. S. Lewis called Mere Christianity. A little boy asks his father if he can get a sixpence—a very small amount of English currency—to go and get a gift for his father. The father gladly accepts the gift and he’s really happy with it, but he also realizes that he’s not any richer for the transaction. C.S. Lewis was comparing that to his belief that God has given him, and us, the gifts that we possess, and to serve Him the way we should, we should do it humbly—realizing how we got the gifts in the first place.

Leigh Nash (Lead Vocalist)

Lyrics:

It’s every day
I’m in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same
It’s every day
I’m in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same

Is it all inside my head
Is it all inside my head
I’ll view the list
And take my pick
I view my faith
And make a choice
‘Cause it’s nobody else’s but mine

But you are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

So many days within this race
I need the truth
I need some grace
I need the path
To find my place
I need some truth
I need some grace
The part of you
That’s part of me
We’ll never die
We’ll never leave
And it’s nobody else’s but mine

You are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

You’ll view the list
And take your pick
You’ll view my faith
And make a choice
‘Cause it’s nobody else’s but yours

And you’re in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name

‘Cause you’re in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
