"Won't Let You Down" as written by and Liam Gallagher....
No I won't, let you down
Hate to say you're surrounded by clowns
Looks to me, they've had their day
Think it's time that you came out and played

What d'you say?
It's time that you came out and played
Won't you say?
It's time that you came out and played

Let's get out of our minds
Won't waste your time
Give it a try
Won't waste your time

No I won't, let you down
Hate to say you're surrounded by clowns
Looks to me, they've had their day
Think it's time that you came out and played

What d'you say?
It's time that you came out and played
What d'you say?
It's time that you came out and played

Let's get out of our minds
Don't waste your time
Give it a try
Open your mind

Won't let you down
Don't let me down
Won't let you down
Won't let you down

    Song MeaningTo me this is about I wouldn't say pulling someone away from others but wanting to get close to someone but are not able to due to always being with others. I can really connect to this song and pretty sure I got the meaning down all the lyrics fit.


    Hate to say you're surrounded by clowns
    Looks to me, they've had their day
    Think it's time that you came out and played

    Showing he want's to bring this person away from the people considered to be clowns.

    won't waste your time saying he won't disappoint her.
    changing don't waste your time. with said clowns

    Give it a try meaning come with me instead.

    not the best explaining but I think I got it

    General CommentI like this song a lot, but the laziness of Oasis lyrics might finally be getting to me. "Hate to say you're surrounded by clowns" ???

    With the line following it being, "Think it's time that you came out and played/Looks to me they've had their day" maybe the line should instead be something like, "Hate to think you're surrounded by clouds"

    General CommentHmm...this song definitely has a different sound to it, compared to their previous songs. This is a genius tune by Liam. No one really knows who it's about, but one can assume it's his sons/wife or the whole family. Who knows. I love this song.

    General CommentVery very good song. Very beatles-esque, I think. Liam definitley has talent, the melody in this some bands would kill for.

    General CommentI couldn't say it has a bad tune or lyrics cos it doesnt. Top notch song, but poor vocals from Liam. Remember the 1994-95 quality of singing?

    General CommentVery Under-rated B-Side

    Think its about telling someone to just get out there and live their life, no matter how shit things are:

    "Won't you say?
    It's time that you came out and played

    Let's get out of our minds
    Won't waste your time
    Give it a try
    Won't waste your time"
