"Going Nowhere" as written by and Gallagher....
Hate the way that you've taken back
Everything you've given to me
And the way that you'd always say
It's nothing to do with me
Different versions of many men
Come before you came
All their questions was similar
The answers just the same

I'm gonna get me a motor car
Maybe a Jaguar maybe a plane or a day of fame
I'm gonna be a millionaire so can you take me there
want to be wild 'cause my life's so tame
Here am I, going nowhere on a train
Here am I, growing older in the rain
Hey hey hey hey

Hate the way that you've taken back
Everything you've given to me
Any way that you always say
It's nothing to do with me
Different versions of many men
Come before you came
All their questions was similar
The answers just the same

I'm gonna get me a motor car
Maybe a Jaguar maybe a plane or a day of fame
I'm gonna be a millionaire so can you take me there
want to be wild 'cause my life's so same
Here am I, going nowhere on a train
Here am I, growing older in the rain
Here am I, going nowhere on a train
Here am I, getting lost and lonely sad and only
Why sometimes does my life feel so tame ?
Hey hey hey hey

    General CommentNoel has a much better voice than Liam for this song and can relate emotion. I can't imagine Liam lending the same quality to this tune. Noel makes it a brilliant tune instead of just another great oasis song.

    General CommentAgreed. This was one of the first songs Noel wrote, and I think one of the best.

    General CommentThis song is...wow. Seriously it's better than half the tracks on Morning Glory.

    General CommentI love this song too. Very moving this song. I believe its one of the first songs ever written by oasis too as they were making it through the ranks, although I may be wrong. However, its underrated IMO

    General CommentI love this song especially the backing in the "Here am I, going nowhere on a train. Here am I, growing older in the rain" bit. Brilliant

    General CommentI think the song is about a guy who has a very boring life and it seems to be ''going nowhere'' and he wants to break out of it but fails to do so.

    General CommentAnyone else think this sounds very much like a Blur song?

    General CommentIt's a b-side to 1998's 'Stand by Me' for anyone who wanted to know.

    General CommentIs it true that Noel wrote this on a train, on the way to a gig?
