"No Tears" as written by Melanie Thornton and Todd Chisolm....
So long I've waited, patiently
Did what I was told was best for me
Blindly I'd follow, trustingly
And never question why
Unaware of the power inside of me
It was a gift of love that was meant to be
Something shared with the world, faithfully
It was my only dream

No tears to cry,
No sad goodbyes
I'm spreading my wings and I'm ready to fly
No tears to shed,
Only happiness ahead
This millennium will be my time to be free

Through it all I have grown, no regrets
I can say I've learned my lesson well
The struggle and pain I won't forget
It's made a mark on me
But with all of the strength I possess
I've gotta go for the chance of a life so sweet
No doubt in my mind, I am blessed
I'm gonna live my dream

No, no, no tears...
Oooh I wanted it so bad I could cry
No, no, no tears
But when I got it, it wasnít right
No, no, no tears
It was somebody else's vision of me
No, no, no tears
And now I'm gonna live mine

    My InterpretationNot sure if this might be obvious, but I feel that this was written as an autobiographical song about Melanie "breaking free" from La Bouche and going on her own, but for her own good, and for her career ("Blindly I'd follow, trustingly/And never question why/Unaware of the power inside of me/No tears to cry/No sad goodbyes/I'm spreading my wings/And I'm ready to fly"). Despite all of the hard work that she'd undertaken to make it as a member of La Bouche, she'd channel it to help her go for the chance to make it big as the star of her own show ("The struggle and pain I won't forget/It's made a mark on me/But with all of the strength I possess/I've gotta go for the chance of a life so sweet"). The line about "This millenium will be my time to be free" could also be an autobiographical part about her having been a member of La Bouche in the '90s, and making it on her own in the 2000s. Amazing song.
