Leave My Guitar Alone lyrics by Noel Gallagher



Leave My Guitar Alone lyrics by Noel Gallagher

This song is the bonus track on the Japanese release of Chasing Yesterday.

Lyrics

"Mm-hahahahaha-ah-ha-hoo!... 2, 3, 4!"

You took off in the car with my electric guitar
And it didn't come as no surprise,
even though you got angel eyes
You won't get very far

You took all of my clothes
Hid my poems and prose
You took my favourite joke,
you didn't even leave a note?

Well that's alright... I suppose

Take what you need but just leave my guitar alone
Don't make me plead,
but don't leave me on my own

Take what you need but just leave my guitar alone
Don't make me plead,
but don't leave me on my own

You took off in the car with my electric guitar
And it didn't come as no surprise,
even though you got angel eyes
You won't get very far

And it didn't come as no surprise,
even though you got angel eyes
You won't get very far

And it didn't come as no surprise,
even though you got angel eyes
You won't get very far

"The one and only take?"
"Yep!"
"Thank you!"
"Yeah!"

Freaky Teeth lyrics Noel Gallagher

Freaky Teeth lyrics Noel Gallagher

Originally demoed for Noel's debut album, Freaky Teeth has an official version released on Chasing Yesterday. The song has been available in a bootleg form for a couple of years but the release makes it an official song.

Lyrics Freaky Teeth

Well, they knew you were coming down
On the darkness at the edge of town
And they came to steal the lightning from the sky
Yeah, the push might come to shove
And your love might not be enough
To free you from the fears that paralyse

Yet they used to love you for the way you sang your soul
Now they've come to claim you through the night
The ghosts have come to steal the light outta your eyes

It's your momma and your wife
Cuts your heart out with a knife
And they left you for the dogs to lick your bones
They made you cry the rain
But they'd love you just the same
Before your god, and the devil, touch your soul
Tell me what did you bequeath
To the girl with the freaky teeth
Well, she shown you things she'd stolen from the queen
She'll have your hearts desire
As she danced back into the fire
With the holy men who stole your tambourine

It's your momma and your wife
Cuts your heart out with a knife
And they left you for the dogs to lick your bones
They made you cry the rain
But they'd love you just the same
Before your god, and the devil, touch your soul
Before your god, and the devil, touch your soul 

Revolution Song lyrics Noel Gallagher

Revolution Song lyrics Noel Gallagher

A song that Noel wrote in 1998, it now features as a digital b-side to Chasing Yesterday.

Lyrics

They took my faith

And put it in a headlock and

Sealed my fate

Somewhere inside of the world in which I live

Because I failed

They constantly ignore me and

They told me I lost my mind

When I believe that I rule the world


And I'm singing out my revolution song

Like nothing else matters

You can pitch your gold against my soul

But you're gonna get shattered

There's a million houses in my heart

It won't be long

It won't be long

Until I solve that mystery


But what for me

What do I believe in and

The masterkey

Is somewhere inside of the world in which I live

And what for they

They don't speak for no one and

I may have lost my mind

When I believe that I rule the world


And I'm singing out my revolution song

Like nothing else matters

You can pitch your gold against my soul

But you're gonna get shattered

There's a million houses in my heart

It won't be long

It won't be long

Until I solve that mystery


And I'm singing out my revolution song

Like nothing else matters

You can pitch your gold against my soul

But you're gonna get shattered

There's a million houses in my heart

It won't be long


It won't be long

Until I solve that mys...

'Til I solve that mystery

Do the Damage is also a B-Side to In the Heat of the Moment.

"Do the Damage" lyrics by Noel Gallagher

noel gallagher singing live
"Do the Damage" is the b-side to the single, In the Heat of the Moment from Noel Gallagher's Chasing Yesterday album.

Oasis were famed for their b-sides, songs like Talk Tonight, The Master Plan and Acquiesce were as good as any of their album tracks - thus it is no surprise that Noel's Do the Damage has proved quite the track.

Lyrics


Would anybody come and get me out of here

I waited in the rain for the calling

Would anybody come and get me out of here


Maybe the dream that we had is gone

The people 'round here are like a setting sun

They're pickin' you up

When they're knocking you down

But they can't stop me from loving you


Do you want a butterfly

The deals doesn't let it by

You do the damage kid

If love's what it's all about

It's soul I can show you now

You do the damage kid

Be my butterfly

Please don't forget about it

You do the damage kid

If love's what it's all about

It's soul I can show you now

You do the damage kid

Ballad Of The Mighty I lyrics by Noel Gallagher


'Ballad Of The Mighty I' lyrics by Noel Gallagher

From the Chasing Yesterday album, this song features an appearance by Johnny Mar - he's of course the guitarist from The Smiths but is well known for his work after that band, and indeed he and Gallagher are great mates. 

'Ballad of the Mighty I' lyrics

Followed you down to the end of the world

Wait outside your window

Here in the rain I'll call your name

But you just passed me by

You put me up like a fly on the wall

You need a plane when the halos fall

Give me a sign if you hear me at all

You just pass me by

Colours around me are fading away

And I'll be waiting come what may

I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone

Followed the stars and sailed to the sun

And held them in my fingers

Alone on the beach

On my own out of reach

But you just passed me by

I'll give you the world if you take my hand

But you left me alone in the sinking sand

Strike up the band for one last stand

But you just passed me by

Show me the rules of the games you play

And I'll be waiting come what may and I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone

Followed you down to the end of the world

Wait outside your window

Here in the rain I'll call your name

But you just passed me by

Every word I'll be on your tail

Whenever you're hiding behind your veil I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

Yes I'll find you

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone

Watch the video to the The Ballad of Mighty I - It's pretty funny as it features some Oasis references which should warm long time fans' hearts.

You Know We Can’t Go Back lyrics by Noel Gallagher



You Know We Can’t Go Back lyrics by Noel Gallagher


This song is from Noel's second solo album, Chasing Yesterday.
Lyrics

Danger time will felt like I lost my way
I was stayed in silence, in silence and see this all
With my hand on my heart I could tell you if I was dreamin'
Take you to,the love on walls
I won't wake up this time

Baby I believe in magic love
Find the morning stars above
I take you from one stars on and you'll bring you down
And I love you for all time
But it's alright to know we can't go back
Said it's alright to know we can't go back
Know we can't go back

Yeah that's the time that I guess I must believe in
Done out things and we scream out loud
With my hand on my heart I could tell I just be heavy
Take me to the love and dawn cuz I won't back down this time

Said it's alright to know we can't go back
Said it's alright to know we can't go back
Said it's alright to know we can't go back
