A woman named Melissa Lim claims that this song is about her. In her story
, Noel Gallagher met her backstage at the Oasis show in San Francisco three days before the LA concert when he left the band. He went to San Francisco to be with her, and she convinced him to return to the band. She says the line, "All your dreams are made of strawberry lemonade" is a reference to her Snapple strawberry lemonade habit.
Lim also claims credit for album title (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
, as she would use that phrase (from the film Bye Bye Birdie
) to answer the phone.
Lim has pictures of her and Gallagher, and her timeline checks out, but Noel is loathe to acknowledge her. In the Oasis documentary Supersonic
, she is never mentioned by name, but their producer Mark Coyle credits her with getting Noel's head on straight. Noel, who began dating his future wife Meg Matthews a few months after meeting Lim, says in the film of Lim, "I can't even picture the girl. I can't remember her name."
