"The Death Of You And Me" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
High time
Summer in the city
Kids are looking pretty
But isn't it a pity
That the sunshine
Is followed by thunder
Thoughts of going under
And is it any wonder what you see

Calling out to me
I seem to spend my whole life, running
From people who will be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds sucking up my soul

High time
Life is getting faster
No one has the answer
Trying to face the day I'm in a new way
The bottom of the bottle
'Cause every man's apostle
That's one way to gather you and me

Forever we'd be free
Free to spend our whole lives, running
From people who will be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds sucking up my soul

Let's run away to sea
Forever we'd be free
Free to spend our whole lives, running
From people who will be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds coming
Watching the TV
Or is it watching me?
I see another new day, drowning
It's rising over me
And my mortality
And I can feel the storm clouds sucking up my soul.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about being consumed by your hatred or fear of someone/thing. Working so hard to protect your family or relationship that you don't enjoy the time you get with them, always feelling jittery, and that storm clouds are always waiting for him once the good times are over. Also growing insecure, as though the TV is watching them.

    General CommentYeah love this, the video's good, he seems a lot more peaceful. It was shot in America if I'm right, I like the idea that he's somewhere else, a break from the norm, something new, different.

    I'm watching my TV or is it watching me?

    I too can feel the storm clouds, so am loving this song.

    General CommentI think the song kinda speaks for itself. I don't feel like getting cryptic. Instead, I feel like just listening to the best single, my opinion, of 2011. Noel does such a great job here. Lyrically and musically great. I can't wait for the album to be released.

    General CommentThe second verse is wrong.

    High tide, life is getting faster,
    No one has the answer,
    I try to face the day down in a new way,
    The bottom of the bottle,
    Is every man's apostle

    General CommentI'm constantly stalking for similarities between Noel's stuff and Liam's stuff. There are a lot of lyrics from both referring to the sea. I wonder if it's a common thing or if one got influenced by the other. The sea is very poetic in many ways I guess
    Like here Noel wants to "run away to sea" where "forever we'd be free" whereas Liam wants to go "out to sea" cause "it's the only place I honestly can get myself some peace of mind" and, of course, "all I wanna do is live by the sea" cos "it's good to be free." :) Then again, "if you're lost at sea well I hope that you drown." And they did play live by the sea, yes...?

    General CommentI consider myself found of music, I listen to a lot of music from all styles, genres and ages... and Noel Gallagher is one truly genius songwriter... he sings from heart, honest, straight... I can't stop listening this song, it's beautiful.

    General CommentThe first verse in the last part is wrong, should be:

    High tide, summer in the city,
    The kids are looking pretty,
    But isn't it a pity,
    That the sunshine is followed by thunder,
    And thoughts of going under,
    And is it any wonder,
    Why the sea is calling out to me.
