Oasis - Definitely Maybe



Rock 'n' Roll Star

 

Live my life in the city

There's no easy way out

The day's moving just too fast for me

Need some time in the sunshine

Gotta slow it right down

The day's moving just too fast for me

I live my life for the stars that shine

People say it's just a waste of time

When they said I should feed my head

That to me was just a day in bed

I'll take my car and drive real far

To where they're not concerned about the way we are

Cos in my mind my dreams are real

Are you concerned about the way I feel

Tonight I'm a rock n roll star

Live my life in the city

There's no easy way out

The day's moving just too fast for me

Need some time in the sunshine

Gotta slow it right down

The day's moving just too fast for me

Tonight I'm a rock n roll star


Shakermaker

 

I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been

I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticine

Shake along with me

I've been driving in my car with my friend Mr. Soft

Mr. Clean and Mr.Ben are living in my loft

Shake along with me!

I'm sorry but I just don't know

I know I said I told you so

But when you're happy and you're feeling fine

Then you'll know it's the right time

It's the right time

To shake along with me!

Mister Sifter sold me songs

When I was just sixteen

Now he stops at traffic lights

but only when they're green


Live Forever

 

Maybe I don't really want to know
How your garden grows
cos’ I just want to fly

Lately did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks it to the bone

Maybe I just want to fly
I want to live I don't want to die
Maybe I just want to breath
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Maybe I don't really want to know
How your garden grows
I just want to fly

Lately did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks it to the bone

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
We're gonna live forever

Gonna live forever
Live forever
Forever


Up In The Sky

 

Hey you! Up in the sky

Learning to fly

Tell me how high

Do you think you'll go

Before you start falling

Hey you! Up in a tree

You wanna be me

But that couldn't be

Cos the people here they don't hear you calling

How does it feel

When you're inside me?

Hey you! wearing the crown

Making no sound

I heard you feel down

Well that's too bad

Welcome to my world

Hey you! Stealing the light

I heard that the shine's

Gone out of your life.

Well that's just too bad

Welcome to my world

You'll need assistance with the things that you have never ever

seen

It's just a case of never breathing out

Before you've breathed it in

How does it feel

When you're inside me?

Hey you! Up in the sky

Learning to fly

Tell me how high

Do you think you'll go

Before you start falling

Hey you! Up in a tree

You wanna be me

But that couldn't be

Cos the people here they don't hear you calling

How does it feel

When you're inside me?

You'll need assistance with the things that you have never ever seen

It's just a case of never breathing out

Before you've breathed it in

How does it feel

When you're inside me?


Columbia

 

There we were now here we are

All this confusion nothings the same to me

There we were now here we are

All this confusion nothings the same to me

But I can't tell you the way I feel

Because the way I feel is oh so! new to me

No I can't sell you the way I feel

Because the way I feel is oh so! new to me

What I heard is not what I hear

I can see the signs but they're not very clear

What I heard is not what I hear

I can see the signs but they're not very clear

This is confusion am I confusing you?


Supersonic

 

I need to be myself

I can't be no one else

I'm feeling supersonic

Give me gin and tonic

You can have it all but how much do you want it?

You make me laugh

Give me your autograph

Can I ride with you in your B.M.W ?

You can sail with me in my yellow submarine

You need to find out

'Cos no one's gonna tell you what I'm on about

You need to find a way for what you want to say

But before tomorrow

'Cos my friend said he'd take you home

He sits in a corner all alone

He lives under a waterfall

No body can see him

No body can ever hear him call

You need to be yourself

You can't be no one else

I know a girl called Elsa

She's into Alka Seltzer

She sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train

She made me laugh

I got her autograph

She done it with a doctor on a helicopter

She's sniffin in her tissue

Sellin' the Big Issue

She needs to find out

'Cos no one's gonna tell you what I'm on about

She needs to find a way for what she wants to say

But before tomorrow

'Cos my friend said he'd take you home

He sits in a corner all alone

He lives under a waterfall

No body can see him

No body can ever hear him call


Bring It On Down

 

What was that sound ringing around your brain?

Today was just a blur, you gotta head like a ghost train

What was that sound ringing around your brain?

You're here on your own who you gonna find to blame?

You're the outcast - you're the underclass

But you don't care - because you're living fast

You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end

I know you've got a problem that the devil sends

You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who

I'll be scraping your life from the soul of my shoe tonight.

Bring it on down. Bring it down for me

Your head's in a fish tank

Your body and your mind can't breath

You're the outcast - you're the underclass

But you don't care - because you're living fast

You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end

I know you've got a problem that the devil sends

You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who

I'll be scraping your life from the soul of my shoe tonight.


Cigarettes And Alcohol

 

Is it my imagination

Or have I finally found something worth living for?

I was looking for some action

But all I found was cigarettes and alcohol

You could wait for a lifetime

To spend your days in the sunshine

You might as well do the white line

Cos when it comes on top . . .

You gotta make it happen!

Is it worth the aggravation

To find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for?

It's a crazy situation

But all I need are cigarettes and alcohol!

You could wait for a lifetime

To spend your days in the sunshine

You might as well do the white line

Cos when it comes on top . . .

You gotta make it happen!


Digsy's Dinner

 

What a life it would be

If you would come to mine for tea

I'll pick you up at half past three

And we'll have lasagne

I'll treat you like a Queen

I'll give you strawberries and cream

And then your friends will all go green

For my lasagne

These could be the best days of our lives

But I don't think we've been living very wise

Oh no! no!

What a life it would be

If you would come to mine for tea

I'll pick you up at half past three

And we'll have lasagne

These could be the best days of our lives

But I don't think we've been living very wise

Oh no! no!

What a life it would be

If you would come to mine for tea

I'll pick you up at half past three

And we'll have lasagne

I'll treat you like a Queen

I'll give you strawberries and cream

And then your friends will all go green

For my lasagne


Slide 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?

Hold me down - all the world's asleep

I need you now - you've knocked me off my feet

I dream of you - we talk of growing old

But you said please don't !

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

I'll find a way

Of chasing the sun

Let me be the one that shines with you

In the morning when you 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 that shines with you

And we can slide 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

I'll find a way

Of chasing the sun

Let me be the one that shines with you

In the morning when you don't know what to do

Two of a kind

We'll find a way

To do what we've done


Married With Children

 

There's no need for you to say you're sorry

Goodbye I'm going home

I don't care no more so don't you worry

Goodbye I'm going home

I hate the way that even though you

Know you're wrong you say you're right

I hate the books you read and all your friends

Your music's shite it keeps me up all night

There's no need for you to say you're sorry

Goodbye I'm going home

I don't care no more so don't you worry

Goodbye I'm going home

I hate the way that you are so sarcastic

And you're not very bright

You think that everything you've done's fantastic

Your music's shite it keeps me up all night

And it will be nice to be alone

For a week or two

But I know that I will be

Right back here with you

There's no need for you to say you're sorry

Goodbye I'm going home

I don't care no more so don't you worry

Goodbye I'm going home

I hate the way that even though you

Know you're wrong you say you're right

I hate the books you read and all your friends

Your music's shite it keeps me up all night
