No Tears by Carol Knudsen

It has been far too long since I have ‘created’ any artwork and tonight I have enjoyed a rare moment where I was able to immerse myself in the sweet sound of James Blunts voice and let my creative energy flow…..sigh….
The end result is this work I have called ‘No Tears’ after a song by James Blunt of the same name….I absolutely love the lyrics of this song….they have a very personal meaning to me…
This work may not be your cup of tea but I must say, I have enjoyed every minute of it!
Lots of components in this work….

NO TEARS – James Blunt
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
