“Music makes my blood flow. I don't know anyone who doesn't have a favorite song. I just want to be the messenger.” - Brandon Flowers


{Verse 1}
I was in over my head
To think that this could work
I thought it would be perfect
But perfect seems to hurt
I was so naive
When you swept me off my feet
I let go of everything
Your love had blinded me

{Chorus}
And now I say
No man, no cry
No tears in my eyes
No run, no hide
No fall, no fear to fly
The only thing that's worse
Is always getting hurt
That's how I came to find
No man, no cry

{Verse 2}
I was so high I forgot
I had to come back down
Enjoying the free ride
Until I hit the ground
We were so young
Just fools falling in love
I was so innocent
But you made me grow up

{Chorus}
And now I say
No man, no cry
No tears in my eyes
No run, no hide
No fall, no fear to fly
The only thing that's worse
Is always getting hurt
That's how I came to find
No man, no cry

{Verse 3}
The best things in life
Never last forever
We were playing pretend
But we could never last together
I'll know love when it's real
And I pray we'll both find it
For now I'm moving on
Putting all of this behind me

{Chorus}
And so I say
No man, no cry
No tears in my eyes
No run, no hide
No fall, no fear to fly
When it's worth the risk
I'll put my heart in it
But this time I have to fold
Because I just can't win it

{Final Chorus}
And now I say
No man, no cry
No tears in my eyes
No run, no hide
No fall, no fear to fly
The only thing that's worse
Is always getting hurt
That's how I came to find
No man, no cry
