    Maybe

    Maybe.
    The greatest word ever? Maybe.
    A word that sits safely on the fence when other words slug it out for superiority. Maybe.
    A word that gives you a little ray of hope in an otherwise gloomy world. Maybe.
    A childhood placater. Maybe.
    A teenage dream. Maybe.
    A life of regret or of no regret? Maybe.
    That twilight word before the all consuming definite. Maybe?

    I haven't quite decided yet.

    Of a prelude to no. Maybe is a tease and not a nice one. Maybe is a sign of weakness and/or distrust. McCartney was a douche singing “Maybe I’m Amazed”. Gee Paul, you may not actually feel so great about your wife? Maybe you are not amazed how she stuck behind you? Yes.

    Maybe there is another unbeatable alien weapon besides just the one near the damaged ship in Fallout and this one sets things on fire unquenchable even though it is never mentioned in any walk through. Maybe it is just lying on the ground in a radioactive gully far far from the ship where you would never guess. Maybe I'm the only one to have found it. Maybe.

    The film Wonderwall (1968) is mainly know for its soundtrack by George Harrison. It's about a biologist who spends his lifetime peering through a microscope until a girl named Penny Lane (Jane Birkin) moves in next to his apartment. He discovers a hole through which he can observe her fantastic world of sex, drugs and psychedelia. He begins drilling more holes into this wonderwall, becoming completely engrossed in it.

    Interesting, although I'm not sure it makes the song make more sense.

    It might be written from a rock fan perspective. The relationship between fans and rock stars iswas in some ways similar to that of voyeurs and their subjects. From the 60s through the 90s you were watching rock stars through the peep holes the press drilled into the wonderwall. And there was an expectation cast upon rock stars, not just to put on the familiar sex & drugs & rock'n'roll show, but also to save a listener - on a very individual, spiritual level - through their music. A mixed feeling of transcendence and the pseudo social relationship one can develop with their rock star, described through a Christian metaphor. Can music save your mortal soul? as Don McLean asked.
    The next song on the same album ("Don't look back in anger") gives their reply to that: Please don't put your life in the hands of a Rock 'n' Roll band who'll throw it all away.
