"Rockin' Chair" as written by Noel Gallagher and Chris Griffiths....
I'm older than I wish to be
This town holds no more for me
All my life I try to find another way
I don't care for your attitude
You bring me down I think you're rude
All my life I try to make a better day

It's hard enough being alone
Sitting here by the phone
Waiting for my memories
To come and play

It's hard enough sitting there
Rockin' in your rockin' chair
It's all too much for me to take
When you're not there

It's hard enough being alone
Sitting here by the phone
Waiting for my memories
To come and play

It's hard enough sitting there
Rockin' in your rockin' chair
It's all too much for me to take
When you're not there

I'm older than I wish to be
This town holds no more for me
All my life I try to find another way
I don't care for your attitude
You bring me down I think you're rude
All my life I try to make a better day

It's hard enough being alone
Sitting here by the phone
Waiting for my memories
To come and play

It's hard enough sitting there
Rockin' in your rockin' chair
It's all too much for me to take
When you're not there

    General CommentSupposedly this song was going to be on What's The Story. It was only cut because of a technical issue, one of the guitarists couldn't learn their part.

    IMO it would have ranked up there with the trio of Wonderwall/Champagne Supernova/Don't Look Back In Anger.

    General CommentThis is so great and full of meaning...the music, Liam's voice reflect a feeling of pain and solace that struck me, even today...I can even picture the image of being in my rockin' chair, by the telephone, watching the years go by. Heavy, isn't it?
    To me is about being mistreated by someone you care too much for, and being brought down by them. You always try to be happy but they won't let you, and you just want to move on but you can't, you're always waiting and reliving your memories...

    Such a painfully (to me) nice song.

    General Commentthis is all about growing up and growing out of the circumstances you're in, yet you don't want to. "Waiting for my memories to come and play" is like taking solace in your past, cuz it's the only thing you've got to hold onto
