Noel Gallagher - Dead In The Water (Live At RTÉ 2FM Studios, Dublin) Lyrics




For the shore as the night is slipping through my hands
I fall into the sea like the empire built on the sand
I've been thinking 'bout the days when we had no money
That photograph of you, well it still seems funny
Gotta get back to the promised land

So don't walk away love
There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water

Dead in the water
In the water
Dead in the water

I'm waiting for the calm as the storm is getting under my skin
I'm trying to fix the hole in my head where the rain gets in
It's dripping in my ear, and it don't sound funny
I'm gonna take you out when I get some money
We're trying to get it back to the promised land

So don't walk away love
There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water

Dead in the water
In the water
Dead in the water

So don't walk away love
There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water

There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
Dead in the water
In the water
Dead in the water

  3. Jack Place

    I know I have been very terse with my comments on each track on this album, but here is what I think happened. Noel, a very good songwriter, longs for a challenge. He pairs up with a Producer (no offence intended to Noel or the producer-this is just my opinion), who him takes on a twist and turn journey, much like walking into a carnival with a blindfold on, and Noel finds him bending in ways he never thought he ever would or could. He sees this as frustrating at first (he should have bowed to that instinct), and later, he says it was brilliant. However, what it really was was a u turn that did not make sense. It made Noel un Noel. Noel, if you are reading this, never be lead away from who you are. You don’t need to be plastic . You need to be Noel and if you are looking for a challenge, a better one will come. If anyone knows Noel, have him read this for his own good. It is written in a kind spirit, I hate to see a great songwriter being twisted out of his own essence

  4. Jack Place

    Finally, Noel appears and this one IS brilliant

  5. David Chou

    does anyone know if there is auto tuning done in this track?

    dana black

    No autotune just reverb

  6. Imntch

    This is literally one of Noel's best works and he didn't even think to make it a single, unbelievable. Somebody needs to talk to the guy about choosing songs for his album, for real

  7. Raphael Mendes

    I was watching an interview and Liam said he likes this song, really it's such a great song

  8. Simona Košová

    and just like that it's my new favourite song

  9. dubtownman

    The pure rawness... apparently noel called rte up to ask had they recorded this so that he could put it on an album, what are the chances hey!!, always seems like the unplanned things are the best.

  10. Mirko Nulvesu

    Last Noel album has a style totally different from the others.... But this song is a masterpiece. I love him, I love the work of Liam, I love the Oasis. And the most beautiful thing is that my 10 years old kid is becoming a huge fan of them. Maybe they never back together, but their music with Oasis and their work as soloist is beautiful.
    Long live Gallagher bros.

  11. Liam Walters

    Shut your eyes and we’re back in 1996 again , fantastic

  12. Mike Danaher

    He's been a total dick recently, but there's no denying this is an absolutely mega tune

  13. daznobby

    Of all the Noel Gallagher songs this is his best, after the tingles and hairs stand up your left with a sense of warmth and understanding. Just my opion.

  14. Engin Karagöz

    fuckin brilliant

  15. 개비정한세상

    For the shore as the night is slipping through my hands
    I fall into the sea like the empire built on the sand
    I've been thinking 'bout the days when we had no money
    That photograph of you, well it still seems funny
    Gotta get back to the promised land
    So don't walk away love
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    Dead in the water
    In the water
    Dead in the water
    I'm waiting for the calm as the storm is getting under my skin
    I'm trying to fix the hole in my head where the rain gets in
    It's dripping in my ear, and it don't sound funny
    I'm gonna take you out when I get some money
    We're trying to get it back to the promised land
    So don't walk away love
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    Dead in the water
    In the water
    Dead in the water
    So don't walk away love
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    Dead in the water
    In the water
    Dead in the water

  16. Sidney Dirzo

    I'm in love with this song <3

  17. Matthew Stephens

    If this had been an early Oasis B-Side, people would be hailing this as an all time great.

  18. Matteo De Vito

    “It’ll do, won’t it?”. Yes sir. Thank you once again

  19. Jorge DTP

    what a gem , beautiful and emotional perfection

  20. Hazed

    Biblical

  21. Crissy Stringer

    This is noel gold x

  22. RG 12

    Getting a Talk Tonight and Take Me Away vibe from this song, regardless of which brother you prefer both of them are utterly incredible and Noel always seems to top Liam when it comes to melancholic songs like this.

  23. Sarah Nabi

    ❤️😘❤️

  24. Celso Turtelli

    Gallagher's best song after Oasis. What a tune.

  25. Ross Heathorn

    Reminds me of my mum dying. She passed away 13th January 2018 time I got this album. Always reminds me of my mum now peace x

  26. Ross Heathorn

    This should have been released bro. Who ever I played it to loves it. Shame seems waste of good music. Peace world x

  27. thomas mccormack

    Who are the 617 who thumb downed?!!!

    Andrew Birkett

    thomas mccormack quite simply, complete fucking morons.

  28. James Searson

    This is biblical, the only way it could be any better is if Liam was singing it with him

    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    Dead in the water
    In the water
    Dead in the water
    I'm waiting for the calm as the storm is getting under my skin
    I'm trying to fix the hole in my head where the rain gets in

    So don't walk away love
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    There's never enough that could make me crash on the broken glass
    Let the storm rage, I'd die on the waves
    But I will not rest while love lies dead in the water
    Dead in the water
    In the water
    Dead in the water

  33. Matias Escobar

    This song is pure love

  34. M Flettre

    Had to listen to this fifty times before I could let go of it.

  35. M Flettre

    Let the storm rage Noel.

  36. TheMadScout

    Oasis - Dead In The Water

  37. Henri Suarez

    People say i should stop singing dead in the water .. i said maybe....

  38. Steven G

    Absolutely glorious.

  39. Gabe Mendes

    I'm listening to this 24/7 I just can't seem to get over it

  40. Thelonious Coltrane

    2019
    the chords are like Wonderwall...
    Imagine Liam singing this song...
    Can you hear it?

    See...

  41. Thelonious Coltrane

    2019
    Whoever created the graphics on this video deserves some kind of award: Best in Multi media presentation.

  42. justin doyle

    We got time for one more Noel...Fuck Yes we do!

  43. UK Robochips

    Random music worker: "You sang that with more spirit".

    NG: Ermm, yeah

    * Sarcasm much!

    Dean Bailey

    haha quality!

  44. mELtingaWay __

    Beyond beautiful

  45. Boabywankenobi

    I come back to this song every couple of months......this is a better song than masterplan. This is Noel's greatest "kinda b-side" track. Absolutely tremendous.

  46. Ethan Roberts

    First song I listened when pochettino was sacked and I feel dead in the water

  47. Mr Sifter

    Just the most beautiful song

  48. Luis Ansorena

    This is his best song since Oasis broke up.

  49. Carl Hill

    Outstanding and deeply thought provoking.

  50. Imitation Beauty

    I'll always love this tune❤

  51. Yael Delgado

    I loved this song so much that I made a cover: https://soundcloud.com/melodicfingers/dead-in-the-water
    Please dislike it if needed Dx

  52. Csaba Balla

    Imagine if the guy said no we ain't got time...

  53. Eve

    Love how throughout 2017 everyone was bigging Liam up and slagging Noel, then he just casually drops this at the end of the year like it's nothing. Champion.

  54. Ma'amoun Salhab

    So when is Ryan Adams going to cover this?

  55. Thelonious Coltrane

    2019
    please share a Noel G. song that
    does NOT sound great! can't find one!
    thanks

    Ash- leigh

    That is facts! 🙌🏼

  56. lee parker

    liam more rock n roll though,this is bed time song !!

  57. Stephen Oneill

    This is the most oasis sounding track he's done solo, love his solo stuff but this is like a discarded oasis number, so unbelievably stunning. Sounds like a b side oasis track which were always hidden gems. Reminds me of the days after a wild house party when the dregs of the night would all be wasted and sunrise blooms and some clever fucker fires on oasis talk tonight or up in the sky and you get that second wind of let's get a carry out and love life. The teen days were a luxury.

  58. Tanzina Yasmin Tani

    this might be the best song i have listened in my life

  59. Mandy Khoo

    Andy offhand start leads to fuck off choir vocals!??!!! Odd ....purity. Ng needs more ?....this album was diabolical ....contract problem?? He needs a good time quickly.....

  60. Ruben Alejandro Aleman

    I hope you live forever Noel!

  61. DarthAlcoholic

    I've been an Oasis fan since 1994. I was pointed to this track last week.
    An all time favourite already.

  62. Dane Baxter

    Whew! Tears flowing like a fountain.... I am a blubbering mess

  63. Brunno

    Every word he sang, is so deep, looks like he is putting emotions more and more

  64. Virus Of Cyrus

    OMG... YAWN! Falling asleep, HOW can ANYONE listen to this horrible sound?? This HAS to be 110% the Most BORING "thing" ever created right?? I mean otherwise Please explain to me how Anything could get more boring, dull & Completely UNEVENTFUL than this. Just wow. I hope so much that I NEVER meet ANY of the most Boring people in history that gave this thumbs a up, can you imaging knowing these people! I cant Imagine being stuck with any of you, I bet EVERY SINGLE ONE of Your Family members must have been FORCED to commit suicide :( This is NOT music, & Im bookmarking it for when I cant sleep! !00% no joke!

    Zak Simey

    Fuck off

    no x42

    die of cancer

  65. ThreeWellsProven

    Never thought any combination of words could articulate the pain I felt when SHE left; but this certainly did. Word for word. Thank you Noel for keeping me alive. You are an angel...

  66. MissGeorgiex1

    Literally too beautiful...

  67. Barbara Meza

    He still can write songs that appeal to the masses so let him experiment in peace people.

  68. Semper Eadem

    So beautiful

  69. Antman Little

    Just casually drops an ad in the middle of video! Greedy Youtube

    stuart gardner

    Who the fucks not got ad block?

    Antman Little

    @stuart gardner I have got an ad blocker bro

  70. Kyle Stevens

    Put an advert in the middle of this song?? Good bye YouTube. You were good once.

  71. Deep Heat

    Never know if this is about him & Liam....?

    Imitation Beauty

    I think so

  72. Deep Heat

    I'm sure there are people, a lot of people, that just trawl through YouTube randomly clicking "dislike" buttons? How could there be so many thumbs down for this & other immense tracks otherwise?

    stuart gardner

    Really what's your problem? You have a free song from Noel. A seriously good song. Fuck the dislikes. But... Boohoo.

  73. MindTech

    wowoowowowoowowow

  74. Adam Nemeth

    4 chords + 1 heart
    Need no more

  75. LordRampentHump

    what i would like to know is how Noel took the headphones off while playing the guitar ;-)

  76. Matthew Potvin

    Top shelf that track

  77. Mandy Khoo

    A bored Noel bangs out a classic waiting for the kettle to boil........bastard!!!

  78. maria Castro

    Simply beautifull...thanks for made music for the heart and soul...your music is part of the b.s.o of my Life.

  79. M B

    They really captured that special moment when everything is perfect, the mood, the atmosphere and it's bloody beautiful

  80. David G

    I really wish this Noel Gallagher would come back. When he's writing songs like this there's no-one better.

  81. T Revor

    Heard this live in Newcastle, wherever you hear this live, it’s an experience.

  82. John j

    Now that's a fucking tune man

  83. Reece Barnett

    This is Noel. He’s still there he’s just lost

  84. luton Chris

    Beautiful

  85. Ncjfjbh Gjxnfmkoj

    Aaaahhhh😖😖😖😟😟😑😑😑😌😌

  86. tessa97

    Can't describe how much I love this song, it's so emotional and I felt in love the first time I heard it. ❤️

  87. P A N G

    Ok, that phrase in 2:03 is a Beatles refernce?

  88. Maria Luisa Gomes

    Love it Noel, calms me down. Like no other song does.

  89. Joe Chiara

    This is what we want. This is where you belong. Come back to us Noel #liamgallager

  90. hairy tutsie

    Best song since master plan...i hope he's watched liams new video n gets a grip

  91. pietje32

    Yeah Noel, that'll do...

  92. Mark Weir

    these [pathetic money grabbing pussys need shot off ….. I hate to say it but they are as bad as no one …… it seems to me they are makingmoney off our backs

  93. Mark Weir

    I have to admit I might've had a beer or two so here I go …. NOEL is GOD but he can't and never can he claim to be oasis because each and every decent noel fan must understand that without HIS lyrics in each and every one of our lives there is not ONE of us who are able or worthy of begging both of them to wake the fuck up and realise that we all have family that are pictures of violence and hate and loss and whatever else.... I'm basically saying after roughly 25 years of dedication to the lyrics if noel and his brother liam continue to compare their lives to everyone elses i'll give up …. They are not council ….. both are little girls and if they are looking for examples my sisters are here to let them know how are they are both bitches … pathetic ,commercialised ,greedy, stu[pid……..wankers
