FROM THE ARCHIVE 316 -1973-

No Regrets
Written by Tom Rush.

Released 1973 on the album Never, Never, Never. Available on CD for example on the collection The Magic Is You.

Previously sung by Tom Rush 1968 on the album “Circle Game”. He was a singer and played guitar, mainly folk or folk-blues. Later this song has been interpreted by many artists like for example Emmylou Harris, Olivia Newton-John, Pauline Black and the Walker Brothers.

Don’t confound this song with the other song No Regrets with the same title sung by Shirley Bassey.

Lyrics:

I know your leaving’s too long overdue

For far too long I’ve had nothing new to show to you
Goodbye dry eyes, I watched your plane
Fade off west of moon
Then it felt so strange to walk away alone

No regrets
No tears goodbye
Don’t want you back
We’d only cry again
Say goodbye again

The hours that were yours, echo like empty rooms
But the thoughts we used to share
Now I keep alone
I woke last night and spoke to you
Not thinking you were gone
Then it felt so strange to lie awake alone

No regrets
No tears, goodbye
Don’t want you back
We’d only cry again
Say goodbye again

All friends have tried to turn my nights to day
Strange faces in your place
Can’t keep the goss away
But just beyond the darkest hour
Just behind the dawn
It still feels so strange to lead my life alone

No regrets
No tears, goodbye
Don’t want you back
We’d only cry again
Say goodbye again
