20 Times Noel Gallagher Lyrics Just Nailed It

My love for all things Oasis knows no bounds and quite frankly, 90% of the reason is because of the songwriter himself – Noel Gallagher. The reason for which I picked up a guitar is Wonderwall (not on the list) and the band I will most frequently default to when I need lifting.

There are plenty of other lyrical examples I could have included here; from the Oasis catalogue and the High Flying Birds stuff but these are the lyrics that most forcefully come to mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I could just as easily compile a ‘top 20 most cringe-worthy lyrics of Noel Gallagher’ (“We’ll have lasagne”, anyone?) list…and hey I just might!

The man is not perfect (he has expressed a much displeasing affinity for Celtic in the past) but below are some reasons why Noel G is “The Chief”.

Some might say that we should never ponder
On our thoughts today cos they will sway over time


Some Might Say

Maybe I just wanna fly
Want to live I don’t wanna die

Live Forever

I live my life for the stars that shine
People say it’s just a waste of time

Rock ‘n’ Roll Star

And it will be nice to be alone
For a week or two
But I know that I will be
Right back here with you

Married With Children

As they took his soul they stole his pride


Cast No Shadow

Is it worth the aggravation
To find yourself a job when there’s nothing worth working for?

Cigarettes & Alcohol

Let me be the one that shines with you

Slide Away

I don’t see no shine
Today is just a daydream
Tomorrow she’ll be castaway

Fade-In Out

Sailing down a river alone
I’ve been trying to find
My way back home

Listen Up

I’m older than I’d wish to be
This town holds no more for me

Rockin’ Chair

Here I go still scratching around in the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old

Half the World Away

Take the time to make some sense
Of what you want to say
And cast your words away upon the waves

The Masterplan

We dream our dreams alone with no resistance
Fading like the stars we wish to be

Little By Little

Failed the life in the city
All the phonies that roam at night


Mucky Fingers

The names and the faces in the places they mean nothing to me

Part of the Queue

Who kicked a hole in the sky so the heavens would cry over me?
Who stole the soul from the sun in a world come undone at the seams?


Let There Be Love

I lost my faith in the summertime
Cos it don’t stop raining
The sky all day’s as black as night
But I’m not complaining

The Importance of Being Idle

The town where we’re living
Has made you a man
And all of your dreams
Are washed in the sand


D’Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman

I never did sing and I wish I could
I never could pray cos it’s just no good

Idler’s Dream

What am I gonna do while I’m looking at you
You’re standing ignoring me

Hey Now
