Album: Chasing Yesterday (2015)

  • Lyrics
  • Noel Gallagher originally played this during soundchecks for his 2012 tour, and one acoustic performance made its way onto YouTube, albeit under the name "It Makes Me Wanna Cry." He noted it was a "s--t title, unless it was a song about an onion."

    The song is in fact about Gallagher's relationship with his wife Sarah.
