"Some Might Say" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
Some might say that sunshine follows thunder
Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine
Some might say that we should never ponder
On our thoughts today cos they hold sway over time

Some might say we will find a brighter day
Some might say we will find a brighter day

Cos I've been standing at the station
In need of education in the rain
You made no preparation for my reputation once again
The sink is full of fishes
She's got dirty dishes on the brain
It was overflowing gently but it's all elementary my friend

Some might say they don't believe in heaven
Go and tell it to the man who lives in hell
Some might say you get what you've been given
If you don't get yours I won't get mine as well

Some might say we will find a brighter day
Some might say we will find a brighter day

Cos I've been standing at the station
In need of education in the rain
You made no preparation for my reputation once again
The sink is full of fishes
Cos she's got dirty dishes on the brain
And my dog's been itchin'
Itchin' in the kitchen once again

Some might say Some might say
Some might say Some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say
You know what some might say

    General Comment"Some might say they don't believe in heaven

    Those lyrics mean so much to me. I can remember singing this in the car with my mum on the first few days of secondary school a long, long time ago.

    General CommentNoel&Liam say...Some Might Say- "It was the first song I ever wrote when I moved to London and it was inspired by listening to The Faces. Alan McGee wanted the A-side to be Acquiesce because he didn´t think Some Might Say sounded like a number one. He´s a great man but his one fault is that he has absolutely no idea how to pick singles. As soon as I´d written Some Might Say I was absolutely certain it would be a number one and I was right. I never had even the slightest doubt. That was the gin `n´ tonic getting the better of me. I met a guy in Swiss Cottage who came up to me when the single was Number One. He said, `That song really meant a lot to me.´, because he´s a Christian. And I asked if he´d heard the group at all and he hadn´t. So I told him we had this song called Cigarettes and Alcohol and being a Christian he wouldn´t really dig that. He seemed like a really down-to-earth bloke. And he´s telling me a song means a lot to him as a Christian and I´m having a conversation with him when I´m drugged up to the eyeballs. It´s a laugh, man."

    General Commenta kid whos bunking school standing at a train station so hes in need of education. Then he mocks his Mother, as fishes are slippery, meaning dishes stressed out as its overflowing, but in true cocky kid style..'its all elementary' ;) Its for rebellious youths like they were i think.

    General Commentok heres one, in need of education in the rain!
    the traditional meaning of rain in the unconscious mind and dreams is crying/tears therefor emotional pain. the fact that crying is itself a healing thing to do, could suggest that the singer is in need of some sort of emotional healing for past pain in childhood ect. the fact that it is at the station conjures up an image of a train, and therefor a 'traiin of thought'.

    General Commenti'd say it's a song against complacency, stopping the struggle, sitting there and taking it. the song is full of images of the disenfranchised:

    'Cause I've been standing at the station
    In need of education in the rain
    You made no preparation for my reputation once again
    &
    Some might say you get what you've been given

    but you can't say that if you're genuinely in the gutter. the gallaghers are old labour stalwarts, and the song seems to me to be making the point that all this bullshit people spew about society being alright really is just that - bullshit.
