James Blunt – No tears

This powerful, unsentimental ballad is a track from Some Kind of Trouble, the third studio album from English singer-songwriter and soft rock musician James Blunt. Blunt views this song as the album’s anchor, describing it in press materials as “the summing up of a life.” He explained, “there are certain songs along the way that are milestones that define a writer to themselves. ‘No Tears’ is my milestone on this album.” Blunt told Gibson.com why he’s especially proud of this tune from a songwriter’s point of view: “Musically, I think it’s special. I also like the sense of calm that emanates from the lyrics. For me, the song reflects the fact that I’ve made mistakes, and I have regrets, but that I take responsibility for those things. ‘I’ve made my bed / So I lie in it / No tears for me.'” Songfacts®.

James Blunt – No tears

James Blunt – No Tears Lyrics:
Don’t I know it? Nobody has to say.
I’ve been lucky. Guess I was born that way.
I thank my father, his absence has made me strong.
And I love my mother but she had troubles with God.

No tears.

For the life that you’ve led.
You’ve had angels in your head.
Did you hear them singing in the end?
All the things that you’ve seen.
All the things that could have been.
Well I’ve been everything I want to be.
So, no tears, no tears for me.

Yeah, I’ve bathed in sunshine but cherished the fading light.
And I heard my heartbeat faulter on a winter’s night.
I loved a woman but she didn’t hear my prayers.
So Lord, oh Lord, I’m yours.

No tears.

For the life that you’ve led.
You’ve had angels in your head.
Did you hear them singing in the end?
All the things that you’ve seen.
All the things that could have been.
Well I’ve been everything I want to be.
So, no tears, no tears for me.

Cause someone somewhere’s going home tonight.
Trying to understand the sacrifice.
So save your tears for those left behind.
