Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears


Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears - About the song


"No More Tears" was the title track and first single from Ozzy's sixth solo album. Unlike his previous albums, it did not have a demonic title and cover art, and while this song is dark fantasy, many of the other songs are more personal and reflective, particularly "Mama, I'm Coming Home" and "Road To Nowhere." Ozzy is pictured on the cover with angel wings.


A very macabre song about a stalker who torments women in a red-light district, "No More Tears" was written by Ozzy Osbourne along with his guitarist Zakk Wylde, drummer Randy Castillo, bass player Mike Inez and producer John Purdell.

Wylde explains:

"We were just messing around in rehearsals. Mike started jamming that on the bass, then Randy started playing drums, and then John started doing that keyboard bit."


Lyrics


The light in the window is a crack in the sky

A stairway to darkness in the blink of an eye

A levee of tears to learn she'll never be coming back

The man in the dark will bring another attack


Your mama told you that you're not supposed to talk to strangers

Look in the mirror, tell me, do you think your life's in danger here?


No more tears

No more tears

No more tears

No more tears


Another day passes as the night closes in

The red light goes on to say it's time to begin

I see the man around the corner waiting, can he see me?

I close my eyes and wait to hear the sound of someone screaming here


No more tears

No more tears

No more tears

No more tears


"It's just a sign of the times going forward in reverse. Still, these were our first. It's just a hand in the bush."


"A hand in the bush."


So now that it's over can't we just say goodbye? (Bye bye goodbye)

I'd like to move on and make the most of the night

Maybe a kiss before I leave you this way

Your lips are so cold, I don't know what else to say


I never wanted it to end this way, my love, my darling

Believe me when I say to you in love I think I'm falling here


No more tears

No more tears

No more tears

No more tears


"It's just a hand in the bush."

"In-in the bush, in-in the bush, in-in the bush, in-in the bush, in-in the bush, in-in the bush..."
