Four Letter Word
Beady Eye (Oasis) Lyrics


Sleepwalk away your life if that turns you on
It's only the moment,
Look away and it's gone
It's about time that your mind took a holiday
You're all grown up,
Don't you ever wanna play?

Ah, you've had enough
Of staring out of deaden eyes
Ah, it's gonna be tough
The battle's on and so is the prize
I don't know what it is I'm feelin'
A four letter word really gets my meaning
Nothing ever lasts
Forever

Get on your feet we're going out of our minds
The wheels need to roll
The clock on the wall said its time
Call in love, call in whatever you please
It's not what you wanted,
It might be just what you need

Ah, you've had enough,
It feels like you've blown a fifty amp fuse,
Ah, it's gonna be tough
The more you have the more you can lose
I don't know what it is I'm feelin'
A four letter word really gets my meaning
Nothing ever lasts
Forever

Ah, you've had enough
Of staring out of deaden eyes
Ah, it's gonna be tough
The battle's on and so is the prize
I don't know what it is I'm feelin'
A four letter word really get's my meaning
Nothing ever lasts
Forever

And nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever

It's indeed a shame Beady Eye are no longer. They were quickly becoming my new favorite band. I'm American and bought both special deluxe CD's overseas because somehow our music shops (the little which remain) don't carry them. I've been a fan of Oasis since the band's formation. It was truly a sad day for me. Liam is an inspiration. When Noel walked out he seized the reigns and carried on. That takes guts. Liam's example helped me tackle many things in my life.

I've read troll comments joking him because of his recent hair loss and custody battle was it (??). And the never ending 'his voice isn't the same since..blah, blah, fucking blah. Everyone ages, everyone has problems. Nobody's perfect. Being American I may be the odd one out here but fuck all the whiners and haters. You are one to give LIAM GALLAGHER advise lol...please!!

Thank you Liam for all the lessons you taught me about seizing opportunity (Just Sayin..etc), and showing you have kick ass music writing skills too. Hopefully we'll see you again sometime in the near future. If not a fresh Oasis (God we all pray) then maybe a solo career??

Anyway...wishing you nothing but good things.

SOUL LOVE!!! ;)

Sleepwalk away the life if that turns you on
It's only a moment, look away and it's gone
It's about time that your mind took a holiday
You're all grown up, don't you ever wanna play?

You've had enough
Staring out of those dead end eyes
It's gonna be tough
The battle's on and there's always a prize

I don't know what it is I'm feeling
A four letter word really gets my meaning
Nothing ever lasts forever

Get on your feeling, going out of your mind
The wheel needs to roll, the clock on the wall says it's time
Call it love, call it whatever you please
It's not what you want, it might be just what you need

You've had enough
It feels like you've blown a 50 amp fuse
It's gonna be tough
The more you have the more you can loose

I don't know what it is I'm feeling
A four letter word really gets my meaning
Nothing ever lasts forever

You've had enough
Staring out of those dead end eyes
It's gonna be tough
The battle's on and there's always a prize

I don't know what it is I'm feeling
A four letter word really gets my meaning
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever

Passion!
That's what Individual love about this song and this band.
I'm old now and I can't find a job, but who cares? What I've always hated about school, jobs, women, and all the guys I couldn't find to form a band was their horrible lack of passion.
It's the same sleep walkers everywhere, saying the same stupid things, and not one of them ever gives a damn about anything.
Their words are all the same damned things, like bad actors reading from bad scripts that are 30 years out of date. Their greatest ambitions are to get benefits and good pensions.
What is it? Too much fluoride in the water?
Listen to the YouTube videos about self improvement. They are full of calculations about how to be a better and more effective person, how to impress your employer, or master, how to be the best quality person to find the best quality mate, etc. It's enough to make you puke.
There is nothing about the basic irrationality of love, and nothing about passion. They don't know passion, and they certainly don't want to see it in their servants.
They want rock and roll dead because it is unruly and passionate. It was fine for its time - to tear down the vestiges of the old system.
But the new system of totalitarian control doesn't want to fire people up with passion.
Take the spectacle at the last Superbowl, great masses of people waving their arms in the air to the dull music of what's his name. The lemming parade.
Fire up the Harley and blast your way through their plastic world.
Born to be Riled

Sleepwalk away your life if that turns you on

You're all grown up, don't you ever wanna play?

Ahh, you've had enough
Of staring out of deaden eyes
Ahh, it's gonna be tough
The battle's on and so is the pride

I think most of their songs are great. They are an underrated band.

jreeg dss

The intro crashes through the gate like a forgotten Bond tune. Classy.

Gaffner

Reminds me of "Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me" by U2!

Mauritz Fredzell

Liam should 100% play this live on his solo tour
