  • Lyrics
  • Performed live at RTÉ 2FM Studios in Dublin, this is a bonus track that concludes the Who Built The Moon? album. Gallagher explained to Radio X's John Kennedy:

    "I was doing a radio session in Ireland and no more than a few days earlier, I'd written that song in under two hours. I hadn't played it to anyone. So I was sat with headphones on and the sound in the room was so amazing that while the engineer was messing around with this mike, I just started singing it for myself. I forgot all about it, fast forward the album's finished, the inevitable question: have you got any bonus material? I said, We didn't record any B-side material. Then someone in my office, Said what about that song you did that day in Dublin? The one about the water? He got in touch and they said Oh yeah, we recorded it. My jaw hit the floor - what's special is that I'm singing it for myself. I listened to it and thought, It has to go on the album because I want to play it live."
