  • I still don't know what I was waiting for
    A big love to fall down from the sky
    She took my hand and picked me up off the floor
    She put an apple in my eye

    I said I'm tired
    Come get me off the merry-go-round
    I'm wired
    Come feed me and then bring me down

    She come up to me
    I can't remember what she said
    'Cause I was in a trance and I forgot it all
    I bet you don't know about all that
    Revolution in her head
    She make a lover seem so magical

    She said I'm tired
    Come get me off the merry-go-round
    I'm wired
    Well heaven must of sent you
    To save me for the rapture, yeah

    I'm tired
    Come get me off the merry-go-round
    I'm wired
    Come feed me and then bring me down Writer/s: Noel Gallagher

  • J from Port Huron, MiWaiting, yes, but I'm already convinced it's gonna be real disappointing.
  • Peter Clarke from Hobart, AustraliaThe Rapture is actually a Christian biblical concept where all believers are taken up to meet Jesus in the air to go to heaven at the second coming.
