"Talk Tonight" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Sittin' on my own
Chewin' on a bone
A thousand million miles from home
When something hit me
Somewhere right between the eyes

Sleepin' on a plane
You know you can't complain
You took your last chance once again
I landed stranded
Hardly even knew your name

I want to talk tonight
Until the mornin' light
'Bout how you saved my life
You and me see how we are
You and me see how we are

All your dreams are made
Of strawberry lemonade
And you make sure I eat today
You take me walking
To where you played when you were young

I'll never say that
I won't ever make you cry
And this I'll say I don't know why
I know I'm leavin'
But I'll be back another day

I want to talk tonight
Until the mornin' light
'Bout how you saved my life
(You saved my life)
I want to talk tonight
(I want to talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life
(I want to talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life
(I want to talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life
(I want to talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life
(I want to talk tonight) (4x)

    General CommentWritten by Noel Gallagher, it was inspired by an incident that occurred during Oasis' first trip to the US. The trip did not go well, Noel and the band hated Americans. After a horrible show in LA, where most of the band was high on meth, Noel quit the band and flew to San Francisco. None of the band knew where he was for days. Their manager finally got hold of him, and Noel vowed to him that he would never return to Oasis. He was frustrated with the business, hated the United States and was sick of Liam. The manager and Noel decided to take a trip to Vegas - he thought it would be a good way for Noel to clear his head. At a bar in Vegas, a woman from Philadelphia approached Noel and told him he looked just like George Harrison and asked if he was a musician. He told her he "was in a band." She and Noel got to talking and she started telling him about her own fascination with the Beatles and how she saw them in concert when she was a teenager. This woman, her newlywed husband, the manager and Noel hung out all night drinking and talking about music. The next day Noel decided to join the band at a studio date they had in Texas. This woman reaffirmed Noel's commitment to the band's success and made him realize that it was worth bringing his music to America. As a thank you to this woman, Noel wrote "Talk Tonight."
