…Manchester legends OASIS scored their seventh UK number one with LYLA.
It was the first single from their sixth studio album DON’T BELIEVE THE TRUTH.
Chief NOEL GALLAGHER revealed at the time: “I wrote it much earlier. It dates
from the Heathen Chemistry-era, our previous album. The title for the song should
have been “Smiler”, but was changed as guitarist Gem Archer’s previous band had
also a song with that title years before…”
He also said that it was only after the LP
was recorded that he actually realised that he didn’t write a proper single, but
that Lyla was the song that could do the job just fine. Absolutely, It’s great to
hear this cracker’s smoking drive again. Play loud…

Calling all the stars to fall
And catch the silver sunlight in your hands
Call for me to set me free
Lift me up and take me where I stand

She believes in everything
And everyone and you and yours and mine
I waited for a thousand years
For you to come and blow me off my mind

Hey Lyla
The stars about to fall
So what you say Lyla
The world around us makes me feel so
Small Lyla
If you can’t hear me call
Then I can’t say Lyla
Heaven help you catch me if I fall

She’s the queen of all I’ve seen
And every song and city far and near
Heaven help my mademoiselle
She rings the bell for all the world to hear

Hey Lyla
The stars about to fall
So what you say Lyla
The world around us makes me feel so
Small Lyla
If you can’t hear me call
Then I can’t say Lyla
Heaven help you catch me if I fall

Hey Lyla
The stars about to fall
So what you say Lyla
The world around us makes me feel so
Small Lyla
If you can’t hear me call
Then I can’t say Lyla
Heaven help you catch me if I fall

Hey Lyla ( x4)
