"Roll With It" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let anybody get in your way
'Cause it's all too much
For me to take

Don't ever stand aside
Don't ever be denied
You ought to be who you be
If you're coming with me

I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I'm gonna take me away and hide
I'm thinking things that I just can't abide
I know the roads on which your life will drive

I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl she's not behind the door
Do you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before

[Chorus]

I know the roads on which your life will drive
I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl she's not behind the door
Do you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before

[Chorus]

Don't ever stand aside
Don't ever be denied
You ought to be who you be
If you're coming with me

I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside [Repeat: x 8]

    General CommentFor me it's all about taking your chances and being yourself and not let any soulsuckers stand in your way. And that's the feeling that Liam sings about, that sleeps inside but was lost.

    Brilliant tune!

    General CommentThis song was defo the Oasis side of the main part of the Britpop battle, how it never beat Blur is beyond me. Althoug I like Blur, Oasis do it for me!

    General CommentI understand the overriding theme of being yourself, but I don't get the metaphors like "kiss the girl she's not behind the door" and what is the feeling that he's lost inside?

    General Commentthis is seriously my all-time favorite oasis song!

    I like the two opposing themes... one is like "fuck the naysayers, be yourself!" but at the same time he's like "I'm being myself and yet i'm still getting screwed."

    and the part about "I know the life down which your life will drive" is like he's seeing the direction people are going in and he's trying to tell them to snap out before it's too late, yet he knows it's a futile attempt. "I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
    (so take me away)"


    ....anyway yeah, yet another one of my many theme songs to go on that mix CD I have yet to compile.

    General CommentSuch a great song, probably the first song i had ever heard by them, saw them play in Melbourne last month and was disappointed they didn't play this awesome song! Although they were still great

    General Commentwouldnt ''i think ABOUT a feeling ive lost...'' make more sence? like, he used tobe happy or in love or whatever, but now he has lost that feeling and hes looking back on the good times and wishing he could relive them? thats what i always assumed it was.

    General CommentIt's most certainly "i think i've got a feeling i've lost inside". But if you want it to be the other way, go ahead. I doubt Noel was picky about the lyrics for this song, why should you be?
