don't think he sang it out loud anywhere in public yet...

No Tears is/was available to stream for the fans who checked in using Facebook Places while at the intimate fan show.

So yes, some of us have heard it

Hope I did get the lyrics right (feel free to correct any mistakes... ) but I think at least it give you the main idea of the song...

*********************************************************************************
Donít I know it? Nobody has to say
Iíve been lucky. Guess I was born that way.
I think my father his absence has made me strong.
Then I love my mother but she had troubles with God.
No tears

[CHORUS]:
For the life that you led
You had angels in your head
Did you hear them singing in the air?
All the things that youíve seen
All the things that could have been
Will I've been everything I want to be?


So, no tears, no tears for me

Yeah, Iíve bathed in sunshine but cherish the fading light
And I heard my heartbeat falter on a winterís night
I loved a woman but she didnít hear my prayers
So Lord, oh Lord, Iím yours
No tears

[CHORUS]

So, no tears, no tears

Cause someoneís somewhere going home tonight
Trying to understand the sacrifice
So save your tears for those left behind

[CHORUS]
So, no tears, no tears, no tears for me
*********************************************************************************

my very personal view...:
this is a very emotional and honest one... having obviously everything most the people cherish for their lives - luck, fame, money, girls .......... - it's no garantee for a happy and satisfying life... thers's more... love, believe, security, a safe and secluded place to always come back to... that one person who matters most in the world...

although a quite song for me it's not only a sad one... it holds some hope as well and I do hope James is not as unhappy with his situation as it appears to be and he will finally find what he's looking for... whatever it is

Thank you for the lyrics, kejy.

I've been anxious to know what sort of song it is since I'd read the biography.

I'm impatient to listen to it!

Thanks for the link Fentiger!

It's not available in my country,sadly! Think i have to wait to listen when the album comes out(just a few days more Granja,hold on girl!)I think someone was getting mad with the youtube link,just disappeared like magic.But that someone is totally right !

I apology for my mistakes...meanwhile i'm trying to be more careful!

This song is completely perfect( lyrics and music).I think it will be my favourite in the whole albumAddicted!

This is my favorite from some kind of trouble which i have been playing since Saturday. The piano backing music on the chorus really reminds of something else not sure if it is Almez by Randy Crawford ?
Also loving Calling out your name very powerful even with the limited lyrics.

My interpretation of this song, is about being grateful for life and it's experiences, and a reflection - or even comparison to a life lost too soon (a soldier?).  I may be completely wrong of course, that's just the first impression I had on listening to this track.  It's a very moving song, very simple, but very powerful.

I think listening to the lyrics there's something in it that reminds me of Same Mistake, maybe it's just the air around the song? It's really lovely to listen to, quite thoughtful..

This for me is the best song on the album.

My favorite line is..."Well I've been everything I want to be. So no tears. No tears for me."

"No tears" touches a very sensitive chord in me because of the lyrics, the voice and the music. This song must be very moving to hear live, but maybe not appropriate for large arenas.

 

LaBlunt - I know it's weird to say, but the line you pointed out is also my favourite in this song. Amazing how sometimes we like to hear a line in particular or even the pronunciation of a word.

This is what I'd call a JB classic.  Simple but very effective...somehow the lyrics and the haunting melody combine to send an arrow straight to your heart.  There are just so many good songs on this album I'm absolutely bowled over by it.

Cheers Aline...JB brings out the poet in me!

I'm in such a dilemma right now...SO many good songs on SKOT that I can't decide which is my favourite...it just depends which one I'm listening to at the time (I'm so fickle!).

It took me several months to decide which song I prefered on ATLS (Same Mistake won), so it might be the same with SKOT.
