The Dying Of The Light lyrics by Noel Gallagher
This song had done the rounds as a boot leg prior to it's inclusion on Noel's Chasing Yesterday.
The chord structure is very similar to Oasis' Wonderwall which Noel of course wrote. 

Lyrics


I keep on running, but I can't get to the mountain
Behind me lie the years that I've misspent
And I've been sinking like a flower in the fountain
When all the love I'm gonna need is heaven-sent...

Gonna try my best to get there,
but I can't afford the bus fare
and the storm that's rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry...

And I was told
that the streets were paved with gold
and there'd be no time for getting out when we were young
It's alright,
if you dance with me tonight,
we'll fight the dying of the light and we'll catch the sun.

Woke up sleeping on the train that was bound for Nowhere
Echoes that I could hear were all my own
The world had turned, and I'd become a stranger
And I'm tired of watching all the flowers turn to stone...

'Cause I try my best to get there,
but I can't afford the bus fare
and the storm that's rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry...

And the cold against my shoulder,
when it comes on in the winter,
and it seems to last forever,
and it makes me wanna,
it makes me wanna cry

Gonna try my best to get there,
but I can't afford the bus fare
and the storm that's rolling over
Man, it makes me wanna cry...
