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