It's been 7 hours & 13 days
Since U took ur love away
go out every night & sleep all day
Since U took ur love away

Since U've been gone
can do whatever want
can C whoever choose
Eat my dinner N a fancy restaurant, oh yeah
But nothing...
Nothing can take away these blues, oh

Nothing compares...
Nothing compares 2 U (Oh baby)

It's been so lonely without U here
'm like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop this lonely rain from falling
Tell me, baby
Where did go wrong? (Oh baby)

can put my arms around every boy C, oh yeah
But they'd only remind me of U
(All my dames remind me of U 2, girl, oh yeah)
went 2 the doctor
Guess what he told me? (What'd he tell ya?)
Guess what he told me? ('m listenin')
He said, "Rosie (What?)
Try 2 have fun no matter what U do" (U wanna tell me Y?)
But he's a fool (Yeah)

Nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U (Oh baby) (Ooh)
Tell the man play 4 me, yeah

All the flowers that U planted, sugar
N the backyard
All died when U went away (Ooh baby)

know that livin' with me, baby
Is sometimes hard, sometimes hard
But 'm willing, 'm willing give it 1 more try
Prince, do U know Y, do U know Y? (Do U need me, need me?)
Nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U (Oh baby)
Dooby doo... sing 1 more time
say, nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U (Oh yeah)
