Wonderwall Lyrics - Oasis



Review The Song (59)


Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you
By now, you should've somehow realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before, but you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don't know how

Because maybe you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day, but they'll never throw it back to you
By now, you should've somehow realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads that lead you there were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don't know how

I said maybe you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall
I said maybe (I said maybe) you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall

I said maybe (I said maybe) you're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me

3rd Generation | Reviewer: Grandparent | 2/5/13

Just heard this song again on 'Girls' 14th episode. So I wrote down lyrics and it really hit me. Did some looking into music lyrics and up came the Oasis songs. My son made a CD for me with this on it so I played it many a time going off to work, etc. Miles and miles of listening to this music. Now my kids grew up, attended high school in the 90's so I listened to their music but never really listened to the lyrics. Now when they are all grown up and not dependent on us any more this song takes on a whole new meaning. It meant something so different back then... more just a grind. Now I enjoy the lyrics as a lament for the positives in life. Not just one person is gonna save me. I'm going to save me by reaching out to everyone, even those that can bug me. Now I didn't get that meaning before, but see I'm seeing things from a whole different perspective. The song is ageless and if you're listening just right you'll hear the message loud and clear. You just have to be ....... So that makes hearing this song for the 3rd generation--grandkids time remarkable, if us get my meaning!! :)

The simply best song | Reviewer: luis Alberto Gamez lopez | 4/20/12

This song it makes me think about that person that is going to save me and i dont know maybe im weating for that special person.
I have to say that is a great song i just love it and im waring for more of this kind of music from oasis. :)

Touching UK memories | Reviewer: Obi | 12/8/11

Having just come across this song as part of my list for an up n coming gig,I recall those fun moments many years ago in London where I lived with my now ex-wife around '95 (?) In the basement flat lived this french guy who landed an IT job or something. He was young and very friendly and often invited me down for his constitutional 'Pernod' sessions. You can imagine how Oasis, (probably his anthem of all time!)was played to death and we sailed along with it.

Now, in Sweden and loving my partial career in singing and writing uplifting music, I hope to make this song sound and feel as WONDERfull as I did on those nights :)

THE BEST !!! | Reviewer: Louis | 5/26/10

To tell you the truth guys, 1st time I heard this song was when I actually had a music test and we had to analyse an unknown song ... and this was it. While I has hearing it, I fell in love with it and I tottally forgot to write anything on the test paper. I got 27% on that test but it was DEFENATELY worth it !!! I LOVE THIS SONG !!!!! (although it's gonna give me a bad grade =D)

Breaks the Fourth Wall | Reviewer: BrainDead | 5/17/10

So it's come down to this- me commenting on a media product on the net. Dysthymia works its way through, evolving from smoking with stuffed dogs to ranting on the internet.
Skimming through these reviews, I finally smiled when I came to 'No idea' by 'You Don't Know'. She really brought out the true essence of this song- it's beauty lies in it's power to not only make people feel hopeful, as was the lyricist's intention, but also to completely fuck them over in certain contexts.

My ex boyfriend introduced me to a lot of things, and this song was probably one of them too. I don't even remember, because roughly half my life used to be made up of him. This song was special.
And then at my Last Day of School Party a week back, 3 months after our break up, through the contorted daze of marijuana and alcohol buzzing my head, I sat and watched him loudly and spastically dedicate this song to his previous girlfriend, among other things. I was too too high to comprehend and too drunk to move. So I spent hours at the party, locked and sabotaged by unaccustomed substance abuse, watching all this.

The intoxication eventually passed, but what stayed as residue was the inability to comprehend. I still don't get what happened or why it happened or how it was possible. We used to talk sometimes- about each other, about our lives, about new friends in our lives and once, even about getting back together. Everything considering...
I was watching The OC and this song came up there- I couldn't even remember it at first, but my mind froze to a raging stanstill the moment I heard it. It paralysed me and I didn't even know why. Once it hit to the epic 'I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now', it all came back to me.
And I remembered how much it hurt. It really hurt. It really hurts.
Yes, amazing song.

Love this | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/9/10

Honestly this song is amazing. I've always loved it and never really knew why, til one day it came on the radio while I was in the car with my mom, and she told me why it meant so much to me, my real dad, who died when I was two. Would sing it to me over and over until I fell asleep. And I thought I didn't remember anything about him. I love love love this song!

8th wonder | Reviewer: Lamma della fede | 3/5/10

The best song ever of oasis.
The simply just make it best. Liam sing just like a psychedelist. He's the number 1 ultimate frontman ever.
It's not a desperate song that lead you hanging on somebody shoulder. The words 'winding' and 'blinding' shows, there are many hindrance out of there, there's no flawless way up there. But We know, that we should make it, we should make it. There's no excuse to fail. and 'The one', maybe somebody or maybe his own skill. To overcome every problems.
Glory OASIS !

i love this song. i hadnt heard it in a long time then caught ryan adams's cover of it and couldnt get enuff. as what the song means. well i cant say for sure but i can hazard a guess. i think it means youve found the one that stops you from wondering how to destroy yourself. what i mean is so many are blind to the dumb @#$% they do in life, youre wonderwall makes you step back from it all and say what im i doing?

danielle | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/17/09

There's this one girl that i was able to help out of a relationship she was stuck in. She just needed someone to go to so badly, and i was able to be there for her and she fell for me. She told me that this song summed up completley how she felt about me and this song has extreme significance to me now. She ended up leaving me because i never really got a chance for us to start our relationship well, which is really tough for me... I know she was put into my life for a reason though.

In love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/22/09

A boy told me that this song reminded him of me. When I first listened to it... I simply couldn't stop crying. I couldn't stop thinking about what it meant. From that moment on I knew that I loved him... and I will love him forever... because every time I hear this song, I cry. I can't help it. I want to save him so much, because he had some bad things happen to him in his life that he's trying to put behind him... I want to be his wonderwall

wonderwall | Reviewer: lauren | 1/23/09

This song has so much meaning for me. I still cry when I listen to it just because there are so many emotions that are attached to it. The first boy I ever loved and the quite possibly the only one I ever will first introduced me to this song. He opened his heart to me and i wanted to be his wonderwall. “there are many things that I would like to say to you but I don’t know how” …he gradually opened up to me and shared his shortcomings as well as his positive attributes and I loved him even more for it… “maybe your gonna be the one that saves me” He was going through some problems in his life at the time and I was always there for him to tell him everything would be ok and to talk him through things; to give him a shoulder to cry on. But he left me and I’m still struggling, a year later, to believe that I’ll ever find anything like this again. “I don’t believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now”.
