  • Slide away and give it all you've got
    My today fell in from the top
    I dream of you and all the things you say
    I wonder where you are now?

    Hold me down all the world's asleep
    I need you now you've knocked me off my feet
    I dream of you and we talk of growing old
    But you said please don't

    Slide in baby together we'll fly
    I've tried praying but I don't know what you're saying to me

    Now that you're mine
    We'll find a way
    Of chasing the sun
    Let me be the one who shines with you
    In the morning we don't know what to do

    Two of a kind
    We'll find a way
    To do what we've done
    Let me be the one who shines with you
    And we can slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Away

    Slide away, and give it all you've got
    My today, fell in from the top
    I dream of you and all the things you say
    I wonder where you are now?

    Slide in baby together we'll fly
    I've tried praying and I know just what you're saying to me
    Now that you're mine
    We'll find a way
    Of chasing the sun
    Let me be the one who shines with you
    In the morning we don't know what to do

    We're two of a kind
    We'll find a way
    To do what we've done
    Oh, let me be the one who shines with you
    And we can slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away

    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh

    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away
    Slide away

  • Katy from Atkinson , Nhagree with Blake
  • John from Pittsburgh, PaI definantely agree with Noel. This is Liam's best vocal.
  • Natalie from Bromley, United Kingdomim going to get married to this song
  • Takae from London, United KingdomI doubt this is true, but apparently Gallagher wrote an early draft after watching a movie (I was told it was Quadrophenia). He later revised it for the debut album. However Gallagher has never said anything of this kind in interviews, so it cannot be true. I'm including this for those who might be interested in knowing.
  • Elliot from Manchester, United Kingdomthis song is perfect for me and my gf :D
  • Jonathan from Bishop, EnglandOne of the best Rock songs ever! No question. Amazing vocals!
  • Blake from Manchester, TnAbout time this song got put on here. Very underrated. Liam only sounded better on Champagne Supernova.
