Happy Tears

Album: Messy Little Raindrops (2010)
  • Cheryl Cole appears to use the lyrics of this acoustic pop song to deliver a message to her former husband Ashley Cole, following claims that the England footballer cheated on her with a string of women during their three-year marriage. During the song she sings, "I cried when I heard you were cheating, I cried when I said I was leaving, I cried when my heart stopped believing… I cried when I slashed all your tyres, I cried when your suit hit the fire, I cried cos I knew I'd never see you again… but those were happy tears."
    Cheryl Cole did not write the lyrics, but is said to have approved them after they were penned.
