"Don't Go Away" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
A Cold and frosty morning there's not a lot to say
About the things caught in my mind
As the day was dawning my plane flew away
With all the things caught in my mind

And I want to be there when you're...
Coming down

And I want to be there when you hit the ground
So don't go away say what you say
But say that you'll stay
Forever and a day...in the time of my life

'Cause 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
About all the things caught in my mind
Me and you what's going on?
All we seem to know is how to show

The feelings that are wrong

    General CommentIf 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 CommentThe 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 CommentWow 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 Commentthis song mixes lyrics and music into a powerful emotional soup. this is one of those songs that can sometimes bring tears to my eyes (or at least it used to, back when I was a total sap). it's about someone wanting to rectify all of the problems in a relationship. the relationship isn't really healthy, but it seems to be an integral part of the narrator's life.

    General Commentthis song is the perfect translation of that empty feeling you get when you are clinging on to the one you love most, but all the while knowing they are gone and you'll never have them back... it feels like he is trying to savor the moment, or just hold on to what is now. he doesn't want change to come or to throw things apart. he hates the hand of cards that life delt his relationship, and he is pleaing for a redeal. don't go away.

    General CommentExperiencing 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 CommentI 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!
