Noel Gallagher – Ballad Of The Mighty I lyrics

Followed you down to the end of the world
To wait outside your window
Heat or the rain I will call your name,
But you just passed me by
If you put me up like a fly on the wall
You'll be to blame where the heavens fall
Give me a sign, give me a call (give me more)
But you just passed me by
The colours around me are faded away
And I'll be waiting, come what may
I'll find you
Yes, I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
‘ I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone
(Yes, I'll find you)

Followed the stars and I sail to the sun
Heaven in my fingers
Alone on a beach, on my own, out of reach
You just passed me by
Give you the world if you take my hand,
But you left me alone in the sinking sand
Strike up the band for one last stand
You just passed me by
Show me the rules of the games you play
And I'll be waiting, come what may
I'll find you
Yes, I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
If I gotta be the man that walks the earth
I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
Yes, I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
‘Cause I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone

Followed you now the end of the world
I wait outside your window
Heat or the rain I will call your name,
But you just passed me by
Every run, I'll be on your tail
Whatever you're hiding behind your vail
I'll find you, (Yes, I'll find you)
Yes, I’ll find you, (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I gotta be the man that walks the earth
I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
Yes, I'll find you (Yes, I'll find you)
If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone…

    This song is about trying to reconcile with your true love, but feeling like no matter how hard you try and how long you wait to reunite in this life, you know that the chance may have passed you by.

    You might follow them to the other side of the world, only to miss them again, but you'll carry on searching for them, in body and mind, until the day comes.

    She left you high and dry, but no matter what, you'll keep on searching for that elusive, blissful love even if it means walking the earth alone for eternity.

    It's a ballad of the mighty "I" because the search is ultimately about you, your ego and its obsessive search for happiness. To me the title is reflective, as over the years he has realised that God has a bigger plan for him, which has allowed him to grow in ways which weren't possible had he stayed with his true love.

    I believe it to be a song written from the perspective of God, who is always seeking communion with us but we keep passing Him by. He would give us the world if only we would take Her hand but we pass Him by. Don't worry, She will strike up the band again and again until we notice. I can assure you that once you do notice the communications come thick and fast. It's a beautiful song that helped me realize Gods desire that we know him on our terms rather than religious dogma. Thank you Mr Gallagher and namaste.
