Single by Scottish indie band Travis, released as a single and reached number 14 in the UK chart. Written by Fran Healy, recorded at Rak Studios in september 1998 and produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich.

This track almost falls into easy listening; certainly the song is very, very accessible to a wide range of people, causing some people to label it too MOR. This is one of the few songs I will sing along to; it is so sad (dealing with distance and unrequited feelings) but so wonderful to listen to. Travis deservedly sold millions of the album this track is taken from: The Man Who.

Every day I wake up and it's Sunday
Whatever's in my eye wont go away
The radio is playing all the usual
And what's a wonderwall anyway?


Because my inside is outside
My right side's on the left side
Because I'm writing to reach you now but
I might never reach you
Only want to teach you
About you
But that's not you

It's good to know that you all know I'm hurting
It's good to know that you are doing well
It's good to know that you all know I'm hurting
It's good to know I'm feeling not so well

Because my inside is outside
My right side's on the left side
Because I'm writing to reach you now but
I might never reach you
Only want to teach you about you
But that's not you
Do you know its true
But that wont do

Maybe then tomorrow will be Monday
And whatever's in my eye should go away
But still the radio is playing all the usual
And what's a wonderwall anyway

Because my inside is outside
My right side's on the left side
Cause I'm writing to reach you now but
I might never reach you
Only want to teach you
About you
But that's not you
Do you know it's true
But that wont do
And you know it's you
I'm talking to
