"I Hope, I Think, I Know" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
They're trying hard to put me in my place
And that is why I gotta keep running
The future's mine and its no disgrace
'Cause in the end the past means nothing

You tell me I'm free then you tie me down
And from my chains I think it's a pity
What did it cost you to wear my crown?
You don't like me, why don't you admit it?

I feel a little down today
And I ain't got much to say
But you're gonna miss me when I'm not there
And you know I don't care, you know I don't care

As we beg and steal and borrow
Life is hit and miss and this
I Hope, I Think, I Know
And if I ever hear the names you call
And if I stumble catch me when I fall
'cause baby after all, you'll never forget my name

You're trying hard to put me in my place
And that is why I gotta keep running
The future's mine and its no disgrace
'Cause in the end your life means nothing

D'you feel a little down today?
Bet you ain't got much to say?
Who's gonna miss you when you're not there?
You know we don't care, you know we don't care

    General CommentI think this song can be about a band, about Oasis. "They're trying hard to put me in my place, And that is why I've gotta keep running" - it tells that people want to typecast them as "beatles wannabies" or one season wonder, so they have to keep searching their own style and do new things to avoid getting pigeon-holed. And chorus can mean that now they are being accused of "borrowing" and "recycling" music, doing things already done and even sometimes plagiarism, but they are great in their own way and after years will be mentioned and remembered as one on the greatest bands ever.

    General Commenthats off to ashowofhands..gutsy considering this song isn't horrible. However, my brother once remaked that the prominent riff in this song (which can also be heard on stay young, albeit slowed down) sounded like something you would hear on the disney channel. It's a nice optimistic song but it's hard to get that comment out of my head as I suppose it's a ridiculously poppy song

    General CommentNoel&Liam say..I Hope, I Think, I Know- "I liked the demo but it´s too pop for me now. It reminds me of the Busscocks but I think its going to be like Hey Now on Morning Glory - the one nobody mentions."

    General CommentThe album "Be Here Now" is apparently a flop, but i think its great. This song stands out for me as the best, probably is fairly poppy, hence should have been played on the radio more. Great song i say

    General CommentI don't get why Be Here Now was considered bad...maybe because rock n' roll just couldn't get better after What's the Story Morning Glory...I mean Be Here Now had a lot of great hits
