"Fade In-Out" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Get on the rollercoaster
The fair's in town today
You've gotta be
Bad enough to beat the brave

So get on the helter skelter
Bowl into the fray
You've gotta be
Bad enough to beat the brave

You fade in-out
You fade in-out
Without a doubt
I don't see no shine

Today is just a daydream
Tomorrow we'll be castaway
Coming in-out of nowhere
Singin' rhapsody

You've gotta be
Bad enough to want to be
Sitting upside a high chair
The devil's refugee

Is gonna be blinded by the light
That follows me
She fade in-out
She fade in-out

Without a doubt
I don't see no shine
Today is just a daydream
Tomorrow she'll be castaway

We fade in-out
We fade in-out
Without a doubt
I don't see no shine

Today is just a daydream
Tomorrow we'll be castaway
Get on the rollercoaster
The fair's in town today

You've gotta be
Bad enough to beat the brave
Get on the helter skelter
Step into the fray

You've gotta be
Bad enough to beat the brave
You're fading out
You're fading out

    General CommentJohnny Depp played slide guitar on this track, not lead. You think Noel would give up the lead? no way!

    General CommentThe only reason why I'm commenting on this song is because Johnny Depp played guitars on it!! I don't think the guy gets enough credit for his talent with a guitar. He can certainly play.

    General Commentone of the fery few good songs on be here now, the reason people slated it stylus is cos its shite, noel even said so, come on 'girl in the dirty shirt?!' probably their first attempt at a blues song, and not bad, the slide guitar from mr Depp definately adds something that would have been very conspicuously absent had noel tried to fill it. Good guitarist in terms of oasis, but on a grander scale, pretty lead fingered! Still cool song!

    General Commentthis song had so much potential but they just stuffed around with the recording. If they had taken the definitely maybe way with this song and just gone for simple guitar tracks then we could be looking at one of their greatest ever songs. Having said that noel does a brilliant live version of this as a combination with setting sun. The lyrics for this song are awesome. Sounds like its about how people are constantly coming and going in and out of our lives.
