Wonderwall
Ryan Adams Lyrics


Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna give 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

Back beat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
And 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 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 who saves me?
And after all
You're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they'll never bring it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you got to do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead 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?
You're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall
You're my wonderwall

Beautifully and masterfully done.  This version brings an incredibly different and unique sense of warmth to the song.

Noel Gallagher commented on this version in an article and said, “I went to see Ryan Adams in Manchester… So he’s playing away and he just does ‘Wonderwall’ right in the middle of the set. The fucking place went silent. It was so beautiful. I was just like, ‘Fucking Jesus Christ what a fucking song!’ Afterwards, I told him, ‘You can have that song, man, because we could never quite get it right.’

I love both versions and I usually hate remakes, but I do prefer this one.

C. Prusse

I hate the original Wonderwall and I love this one. It sounds like this is the version it was supposed to be.

diamonds Are forever

all i can say is respect to Noel for admitting defeat, And even more so to Ryan Adams. x

@George John I agree, IMO they were easily one of the best bands of the 90s.  It's a dam shame... 

Philip Hayfield

Yeah, it's weird how a great cover can reveal how strong the song is. This version has so much more emotional depth. The guitar plays a big part.

Diplamatik Juan

Great story.  The press always tried to portray the Gallaghers as ego-maniacs but for Noel to say this takes real humility and down-to-eathness

Lilly Piper

I used to like the original but it got too overplayed and I began hating it but this cover makes me love it again. Idk why. It's not 'better than the original' because without the original there wouldn't be this cover anyway. There's just something in this cover that's hauntingly sad and more beautiful than the original. For me, anyway.

Maranda Ramsawack

I feel the exact same weirdly

N K

Sure, it is much more emotional that sink you deeper.

Chadthegamer2.0

For me it's on another level compared to the original,it really hits home.
