It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
Since you've been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues,
'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
It's been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong?
I could put my arms round every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said girl you better try to have fun
No matter what you do
But he's a fool
'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
All the flowers that you planted mother
In the backyard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you, baby, was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you (3x)

    You don't value what u've got till it's gone.then when u realise it there will be nothing to compare to it.u long for it.willing to give anything to have it back.and when u do,u'll forever cherish it.

    Life ) love.. Everithing. It's pain and sadness.. Tears and smile. Love and hate at the same time. Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
    tell me baby where did i go wrong? It reminds me of something very painful , but pleasant at the same time
