  • Hold up
    Hold on
    Don't be scared
    You'll never change what's been and gone

    May your smile (may your smile)
    Shine on (shine on)
    Don't be scared (don't be scared)
    Your destiny may keep you warm

    Cos all of the stars
    Are fading away
    Just try not to worry
    You'll see them some day
    Take what you need
    And be on your way
    And stop crying your heart out

    Get up (get up)
    Come on (come on)
    Why're you scared? (I'm not scared)
    You'll never change
    What's been and gone

    Cos all of the stars
    Are fading away
    Just try not to worry
    You'll see them some day
    Take what you need
    And be on your way
    And stop crying your heart out

    Cos all of the stars
    Are fading away
    Just try not to worry
    You'll see them some day
    Take what you need
    And be on your way
    And stop crying your heart out

    We're all of us stars
    We're fading away
    Just try not to worry
    You'll see us some day
    Just take what you need
    And be on your way
    And stop crying your heart out
    Stop crying your heart out
    Stop crying your heart out

  • Josh from UkThe chorus was really l rewritten by Leeds United fans as a retort to Frank Lampard (of Frank Lampard's Derby County) consistently whining to anyone that would listen about trivial matters. Of their four meetings in the 2018/19 Championship season, Leeds United won three of them, with Derby winning the fourth to send them to Wembley, thus endangering the extent to which Leeds United fans could enjoy this taunt. Two weeks later, Derby County were comfortably beaten in the Championship playoff final, condemning them to yet another year in English football's second tier, giving 'Stop Crying Frank Lampard' back to the Leeds United fans, as they watch their team mercilessly beat the perennial bottlers and their cockney wanker of a manager to a pulp
  • Neil from Birmingham, United Statesthis song is about some one experiencing the worst scenario they ever imagined and some one telling them to get up and get on with it because everythin just might be ok. could be directed at him self.and the friend just might be his 'friend' Great song. Noel just seems to churn them out.
  • Rachel from Hampshire, Englandfits perfect for a friend that passed away, always think of her when i hear this song! its so fitting
  • Paul from Redditch, EnglandIt does bring flashbacks to the 2002 World Cup, and shouting "for f**k sake jump Seaman you useless git" as Ronaldhinio's free kick sails over is stupid pony-tailed head!
  • Rahul from Ottawa, CanadaNoel Gallagher said that he wrote this song with a friend of his in mind.Apparently,this friend was going through a difficult period in his life and Noel wrote this song with him in mind.And yes it's also true that many English football fans derived comfort and consolation from this song after England crashed out of the 2002 World Cup at the quarterfinal stage.
  • Greg from Erie, PaSorry, J&J, Oasis didn't do that. That was on a mashup album called American Edit. The guy just used Wonderwall in it. Dee-dee dee!
  • Jack&jill from Went Up The Hill, DenmarkOasis actually remixed the Green Day song Boulevard of broken dreams. pretty cool . . . . .
  • Erin from Pittsburgh, PaThis song is played at the end of the movie The Butterfly Effect, when Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart pass each other on a crowded city street. It is the perfect ending to the chilling movie.
