Sad Song Lyrics

Sing a sad song
In a lonely place
Try to put a word in for me

It's been so long
Since I found the space
You better put in two or three.

We as people are just walking 'round
Our heads are firmly fixed in the ground

What we don't see
Well, it can't be real,
What we don't touch we cannot feel

Where we're living in this town
The sun is coming up and it's going down
But it's all just the same at the end of the day

And we cheat and we lie
Nobody says it's wrong
So we don't ask why
'Cause it's all just the same at the end of the day

We're throwing it all away
We're throwing it all away
We're throwing it all away at the end of the day

If you're needing
Something I can give
I know I'd help you if I can
If you're honest and you say that you did
You know that I would give you my hand

Or a sad song
In a lonely place
I'll try to put a word in for you

Need a shoulder? Well if that's the case
You know there's nothing I wouldn't do

Where we're living in this town
The sun is coming up and it's going down
But it's all just the same at the end of the day

When we cheat and we lie
Nobody says it's wrong
So we don't ask why
'Cause it's all just the same at the end of the day

Don't throw it all away
Don't throw it all away
Don't throw it all away
Don't throw it all away

Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away

Throwing it all away
Throwing it all away
You're throwing it all away at the end of the day

This song saved my day in a bad time in which I didn't know who the hell I was about to become.

The meaning is pretty straightforward. It's a thought about a tipical day in a tipical town where everyone cheats and lies, even ourselves, but we're ready to help. Just say that you've been honest, you'll receive my help and my shoulder whenever you need it.

"We're throwing it all away/Don't throw it all away at the end of the day". Means we're wasting all the good things of the day, all the good things we have in ourselves, all the good things we try to do and "build". Or, maybe, we're just throwing all the bad things away, at the end of the day. Just try to stay better.

I'm what I would consider a big Oasis fan but I've never heard of this song...however by reading it I can tell it's about how we take life for granted, each other as well. it's saying we need to stop and look around and be there for each other...not much too it.

Sad Song Written By Noel Gallagher

Sing a sad song In a lonely place Try to put a word in for me It's been so long Since I found this place You better put in two or three We as people, are just walking 'round Our heads are firmly fixed in the ground What we don't see Well it can't be real What we don't touch we cannot feel

Where we're living in this town The sun is coming up and it's going down But it's all just the same at the end of the day And we cheat and we lie Nobody says it's wrong So we don't ask why Cause it's all just the same at the end of the day We're throwing it all away We're throwing it all away We're throwing it all away at the end of the day

If you need it Something I can give I know I'd help you if I can If your honest and you say that you did You know that I would give you my hand Or a sad song In a lonely place I'll try to put a word in for you Need a shoulder? well if that's the case You know there's nothing I wouldn't do

Where we're living in this town The sun is coming up and it's going down But it's all just the same at the end of the day When we cheat and we lie Nobody says it's wrong So we don't ask why Cause it's all just the same at the end of the day

Don't throw it all away Don't throw it all away Don't throw it all away Don't throw it all away Throwing it all away Throwing it all away Throwing it all away

Throwing it all away Throwing it all away You're throwing it all away at the end of the day

Everlong - The song was only avaliable as a bonus track if you bought the vinyl of Definitely Maybe, same as Bonehead's Bank Holiday on (WTS)MG?. It was also a B-side on the Japanese single Don't Go Away (anyone else agree it should've been released over here too? Amazing song.) But yeah, Sad Song's boss, I love the chord pattern in the intro/break/outro, really simple but it progresses beautifully.

What a song, simply done but absolutely amazing!

Easily the greatest oasis song (yet!) My friend died recently and this song was played at his funeral. It was so relevant and sad, but quite uplifting at the same time. As I say the best oasis song ever recorded.

"My friend died recently and this was played at his funeral". God, Im not usually the emotional sort but that gave me a lump in my throat.

I've read that the Noel wrote the song for Alan McGee. It's meant to be about how they helped each other out, McGee by signing Noel and Noel by writing so many great songs that saved creation records.

Doesn't matter what it actually means though does it? For a bunch of people it will remind them of their friend who died, and what a lovely song to be remembered by.

this song was on the vinyl copy of definitely maybe and the don't go away EP.

it's probably one of my fave songs by oasis. such a nice sound to it.

I love this song, so sweet-sounding and nice to hear. Probably one of my top three Oasis songs, or top 10 songs of all time, for that matter.
