James Blunt: No Tears Meaning
No Tears Lyrics
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

I think it's more about the mother ..who brought him up the best she could in the absence of his father and could not live the life she wanted... and now she has gone ...

I fell it was meant for his people that he served with in the HRMA. He was a Captain in the army and saw men die. My son is an EOD tech in the USA Army and he has lost many friends. So my interpretation of the song is different than others.

It seems that this song is written from the perspective of his passing father. More or less, it conveys a kind of "no regrets" about life attitude. It is a mourning, but also a celebratory song towards his father and mother, who would not want him to cry in their absence.
Amazing song; well-written and moving.
