"Talk Tonight" is a song by English rock band Oasis, written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was released as a B-Side on the UK #1 single "Some Might Say"along with "Acquiesce" and "Headshrinker" and appears on the B-side compilation album, The Masterplan, as well.
"Talk Tonight" is one of many acoustic B-side tracks sung by Noel, and was at the time, the most vulnerable song he had ever attempted. It was inspired by the near-breakup of the band in Los Angeles in autumn 1994, when Noel walked out without telling anyone and headed for San Francisco. He stayed with a girl he had befriended during a previous show there. According to the sleeve notes to The Masterplan, she talked a distraught Noel "off the ledge" and took him to the park where she played as a child. It is also mentioned in the Oasis book by Paul Mathurs, Take Me There, that his friend also had an obsession with Snapple Strawberry Lemonade, which contributed to the line in the song, "all your dreams are made of strawberry lemonade." The song also featured on the DVD Live By The Sea after Noel makes a mistake on the track "D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?".
The song is included on Oasis' compilation album Stop the Clocks.
Paul Weller played keyboards when Oasis performed this song on Channel 4's The White Room in 1995.
An extract of the song was used in the 2008 GCSE Music Listening Paper Exam.
The song was featured in an episode of popular British soap EastEnders at Jase Dyer's funeral.
A full-band electric version of the song was once played during a radio-session. A recording of the version can be found on YouTube.

LYRICS:
Sittin' on my own
Chewin' on a bone
A thousand million miles from home
When Something hit me
Somewhere right between the eyes

Sleepin' on a plane
You know you can't complain
You took your last chance once again
I landed, stranded
Hardly even knew your name

I wanna talk tonight
Until the mornin' light
'Bout how you saved my life
You and me see how we are
You and me see how we are

All your dreams are made
Of Strawberry lemonade
And you make sure I eat today
You take me walking
To where you played when you were young

I'll never say that I won't ever make you cry
And this I'll say I don't know why
I know I'm leavin'
But I'll be back another day

I wanna talk tonight
Until the mornin' light
'Bout how you saved my life (You saved my life)
I wanna talk tonight (I wanna talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life (I wanna talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life (I wanna talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life (I wanna talk tonight)
'Bout how you saved my life (I wanna talk tonight)

I wanna talk tonight
I wanna talk tonight
I wanna talk tonight
