Liam Gallagher admits he has no idea what the lyrics to some of Oasis’ biggest songs mean

LIAM Gallagher has admitted he doesn’t know what the lyrics to some of Oasis’ biggest songs mean.

The 45-year-old, who has just released his debut solo LP, As You Were, questioned some of the band’s biggest songs, many of which were written by his brother Noel.

According to the Daily Star, he said: “I just got on with it. I certainly don’t know what half of them mean.

“Supersonic? I don’t know what that means. Champagne Supernova? I don’t know what a lot of that stuff means.

“I don’t even know what Bold means.”

Champagne Supernova includes the lyrics: “In a champagne supernova in the sky. Someday you will find me. Caught beneath the landslide. In a champagne supernova.”

While Supersonic has the following: “You need to be yourself. You can’t be no-one else. I know a girl called Elsa. She’s into Alka-Seltzer. She sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train.”

The band had some huge hits, such as Champagne Supernova

Liam isn’t too worried about the words being lost on him though, as he added:  “I can sing anything and it’ll mean something because of the way I sing it.

“When I look at the lyrics I don’t go, ‘What’s this about?’ Not everything has to have a meaning. Life: what does that mean?”

Meanwhile the Wall Of Glass hitmaker has revealed he plans to release more music in the future as long as it’s something the fans want.

He said: “If this album had just dripped out there and no one paid much attention to it, I’d have been f***ed. Personally, I would have gone, ‘I don’t think I’ve got the heart to go make another one.’ But everyone seems to want another Liam Gallagher record, so who am I to deny them?

“I hope they know I’m a real deal. The way I see it, it’s all about the universe, mate. I’ve been good to rock ‘n’ roll and rock ‘n’ roll has been good to me. Rock ‘n’ roll saved my life – it’s done it on many occasions. People have had it worse but the last four years I’ve sort of lost me way a little bit.

“Now it’s come around and been good again. Hopefully I’ll be good to it. The fans are cool, man. Being a Liam Gallagher fan must be f***ing hard work. But let me tell you, being Liam Gallagher is even harder because I’ve got to live with me 24/7.”
