It's been 7 hours & 13 days
Since U took ur love away
Oh...
go out every night & sleep all day
Since U took ur love away
Oh...
& since U've been gone
can do whatever want
can C whomever choose
Oh...
can eat my dinner N a fancy restaurant
But nothin'...
said, nothin' can take away these blues
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

It's been so lonely without U here
'm like a bird without a song
Oh...
Nothin' can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me, baby
Where did go wrong?
can put my arms around every girl C
But they'd only remind me of U
Oh...
went 2 the doctor
Guess what he told me, guess what he told me?
He said, "Boy, U better try 2 have fun
No matter what U do"
But he's a fool
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

All the flowers that U planted, mama
N the backyard
All died when U went away
Oh...
know that livin' with me, baby
Was sometimes hard
But 'm willing 2 give it another try
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Ooh
said, nothing compares...
No no, nothing compares 2 U
