One of this song's lyrics was inspired by a visit to Yoko Ono
's Dakota Building apartment in 1999.I hibernate and sing
While gathering my wings
Liam Gallagher recalled on Chris Moyles' Radio X show:
"I was over in New York once, and I got a call saying, 'Yoko wants to meet you,' and I'd just called my kid Lennon. "We go in there. In the kitchen she invites me in, makes me a cup of tea and she's got this massive banner around the kitchen and I said, 'What does that mean?'
She goes, 'Ah John asked the same question when we went to Japan to meet the parents.' Anyway it says, 'While I've been hibernating I've been gathering my wings.' And it was when he'd stopped making music. So I thought, 'Write that down.'
Anyway, so years go by and I've been trying to get that into a song and could never get it in. And then it happened on that."
