More music

My latest purchase on the musical front (to take my itunes library up to 13,908 songs) was James Blunt's latest album. It's quite mellow and I'm quite surprised how much I liked it. The one song, though, that really struck me, was this one; No Tears. There are a couple of the lyrics that have stood out for me - not for any particular reason, but just 'because'!

Here are the full lyrics with the ones that struck me highlighted.

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


Cause someone somewhere's going home tonight

Trying to understand the sacrifice

So save your tears for those left behind


And here's the song:
