Songfacts®:

  • Anyone searching for clues regarding a reconciliation between Liam Gallagher and his brother Noel will cotton onto guitarist Andy Bell's lyrics to this anthem. They include, "Life's too short not to forgive/You can carry regrets but they won't let you live." NME asked Bell whether they were directed at Noel. He replied: "Hmmmm. People might well hear it that way if they want. I'm well aware of that."
    Liam Gallagher added: "That song was written ages ago, but he can still have opinion on the whole state of play, you know?"
    Bell concluded: "Look, whoever it's directed to, it's a true statement. Life really is too short not to forgive."
