Ariana Grande 'No Tears Left To Cry': Full Lyrics And Music Video

 

Close

A year after the horrific Manchester terror attack, Ariana Grande releases a new song from her upcoming fourth studio album.

In The Process Of Healing

On Friday, April 20, the 24-year-old released the music video for "No Tears To Cry," an uplifting track about coming out of a dark place and simply being happy.

In the music video, director Dave Meyers brings the singer into different landscapes including an empty, elaborately designed mansion to a gravity-defying urban jungle. While the color palette that Meyers used was mostly dark and moody, the lyrics and the singer are seemingly trying to survive despite the pull of loneliness and devastation.

By the end of the video, a worker bee, the symbol of Manchester, buzzes onscreen.

Grande first teased that she is working on a new album back in December 2017 when she posted behind-the-scenes photos of herself in the studio on Instagram. She next announced the song's release date a few days ago.

While the track does not directly allude to the Manchester bombing last year, a source confirmed to MTV that "No Tears Left To Cry" channels the devastation and eventual moving on that the singer-songwriter went through in the past couple of months.

Her manager, Scooter Braun, revealed in a previous interview how much the tragic personally affected the former Disney star. Grande was inconsolable for weeks after the terror attack and, for a long time, questioned whether she could ever appear onstage again to sing her songs.

The bombing which took on May 22, 2017, took the life of 22 people and injured 500 more — most of whom were underaged fans of the singer. Although dwelling with the trauma herself, Grande organized "One Love Manchester," a benefit concert that aimed to help the victims. Over 500,000 people attended the event and raised more than $13 million. Singers such as Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, and others also performed at the event.

The release of "No Tears To Cry" coincides with the first year anniversary of the bombing. Watch the music video below.

'No Tears To Cry' Lyrics

Right now, I'm in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain't got no tears left to cry
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up
I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up

Pickin' it up, pickin' it up
Lovin', I'm livin', so we turnin' up
Yeah, we turnin' it up

Ain't got no tears in my body
I ran out, but boy, I like it, I like it, I like it
Don't matter how, what, where, who tries it
We're out here vibin', we vibin', we vibin'

Comin' out, even when it's rainin' down
Can't stop now, can't stop, so shut your mouth
Shut your mouth, and if you don't know
Then now you know it, babe
Know it, babe, yeah

Right now, I'm in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain't got no tears left to cry
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up 
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up
Oh, I just want you to come with me
We on another mentality
Ain't got no tears left to cry
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up

They point out the colors in you, I see 'em too
And, boy, I like 'em, I like 'em, I like 'em
We're way too fly to partake in all this hate
We out here vibin', we vibin', we vibin'

Comin' out, even when it's rainin' down
Can't stop now, can't stop, so shut your mouth
Shut your mouth, and if you don't know
Then now you know it, babe
Know it, babe, yeah

Right now, I'm in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain't got no tears left to cry
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up
Oh, I just want you to come with me
We on another mentality
Ain't got no tears left to cry
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up

Comin' out, even when it's rainin' down
Can't stop now, shut your mouth
Ain't got no tears left to cry
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh, I just want you to come with me
We on another mentality
Ain't got no tears left to cry 
So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up
I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up

Pickin' it up, pickin' it up
Lovin', I'm livin', so we turnin' up
Yeah, we turnin' it up
