Cold and frosty morning, there's not a lot to say
About the things caught in my mind
And as the day was dawning, my plane flew away
With all the things caught in my mind

And I don't wanna be there when you're ...
Coming down
I don't wanna be there when you hit the ground

So dont go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay, forever and a day
In the time of my life
Cos I need more time,
yes I need more time just to make things right

Damn my situation
and the games I have to play
With all the things caught in my mind
Damn my education
I can't find the words to say
With all the things caught in my mind

I don't wanna be there when you're ...
Coming down
I don't wanna be there when you hit the ground

So dont go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay, forever and a day
In the time of my life
Cos I need more time,
yes I need more time just to make things right

Me and you whats going on?
All we seem to know is how to show
the feelings that are wrong

So dont go away, say what you say
Say that you'll stay
Forever and a day ... In the time of my life
Cos I need more time,
yes I need more time just to make things right

    General Comment:Experiencing the possibility of closure of someone you feel so close to and don't quite understand why the relationship is unfulfilled...taking the pain, persevering and knowing that more time will make it better. Unconditional love in one of its finest moments.

    General Comment:If anyone misconstrues this as a love song (as I've heard before) they are INSANE... This is (in my opinion) a plea for a woman he's in love with to stay with him. He's admitting that things are crazy right now and that she has every reason to leave... But all he needs is time to fix things to make the relationship work again.

    General Comment:I read somewhere that this song was wrote round about the time of (WTS)MG? Noel was quoted as saying if this song had made that album that it would have been one of the biggest selling of all time! Didn't do too bad as i remeber, Great song!

    General Comment:The best version of this song is when Noel sings and plays it acoustic.. completely blows away the album version.. This is the song that got me back into Oasis.

    General Comment:Wow that's weird that infidel says that. Oasis is a band that I used to like a whole lot, then I got suddenly annoyed by Noel's constant whining and other things. Don't Go Away, especially the acoustic has the potential to make me cry and without shame. I love this song, and I'm really glad that Oasis made it. Goes in my top 10 greats of all time. For the record, the acoustic one is the best...rock on fellows.

    General Comment:I have to say, while Noel's version is really great, the album version is so much more emotional for me. Liam's great vocals get to me every time. What a voice he has got.
