“Now That I’ve Found You” by Liam Gallagher
In “Now That I’ve Found You”, British pop legend Liam Gallagher is addressing a young lady by the name of Molly Moorish (who is very dear to his heart). That being said, it should be note that Molly is never actually mentioned throughout the song.
Who is Molly Moorish?
Molly is Liam’s daughter whom he never actually met until the year before this song was released, when she was 21-years old.
As such, the primary sentiments he is expressing throughout are not only expressions of love and affection but also his desire to make up for lost time. In other words, he knows he cannot go back and reclaim the past. But ‘now that he’s found her’, i.e. his long-lost daughter, the singer is fully committed to loving her as effectively as possible. Moreover, he wants their bond to now be a lasting one. He simply just wants he and Molly to maintain nothing but a permanent presence in each other’s lives.
All in all, “Now That I’ve Found You” is joyful and heartfelt song. It is a song in which Gallagher is rejoicing his new-found relationship with his daughter. And in doing so, he states his deep love for and dedication to her.
