  • Here is a song
    It reminds me of when we were young
    Looking back at all the things we've done
    You gotta keep on, keepin' on

    Out to sea, it's the only place I honestly
    Can't get myself some piece of mind
    You know it's getting hard to fly

    If I'm to fall
    Would you be there to applaud?
    Or would you hide behind them all?
    'Cause if I have to go,
    In my heart you grow
    And that's where you belong

    If I'm to fall
    Would you be there to applaud?
    Or would you hide behind them all?
    'Cause if I have to go,
    In my heart you'll grow
    And that's where you belong

    If I'm to fall
    Would you be there to applaud?
    Or would you hide behind them all?
    'Cause if I have to go
    In my heart you'll grow
    And that's where you belong

    Guess I'm outta time
    I'm outta time
    I'm outta time
    I'm outta time
    I'm outta time Writer/s: Liam Gallagher

  • Blitzbutt from KcmoI feel as though this is clearly a song directed at Noel. Written by Liam, it's coming from a place that knows Noel and Liam can't get along anymore and he realizes that the end is near for Oasis. It's a tragic song because he was correct: He (Oasis) was out of time shortly after.
  • Falafel from Melbourne, AustraliaI think this song is about Oasis' downfall in popularity over the years.

    In 'Here's a song...it reminds me of when we were young...lookin back at all the things weve done'

    he is referring to their heyday in which they were young and crazy and mega but are smarter now.

    In 'Out to sea...its the only place i honestly...can get myself some piece of mind...you know its getting hard to fly'

    i think he means they are not superstars anymore and to really find himself he needs to go to his own special place away from it all, cuz its getting hard to be as successful as they were. I think in the chorus in

    'If im to fall...would you be there to applaud...or would you hide behind them all'

    i think he is referring to his wife and his friends and maybe his fans as he says if he is to fully fall from stardom, would you celebrate his great career or would you hide behind the critics and sway with them.

    Then 'Cause If I'm to go...
    In my heart you grow...
    And that's where you belong'

    I think there he means that if he is to fully fall from stardom his wife and friends will grow in his heart becauz hell have more time for them and thats where they belong.

    Then with 'Im outta time'...
    I think he simply means that he has had his day in the sun, and his time as a superstar is defiantly over, as he is outta time to reach that status of the mid 90s once again.
  • Nishit from MumbaiOne of Oasis's best songs..It's softer that their previous stuff, but it works for them..
