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 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 around 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 2 you

All the flowers that you planted mama
In the back yard
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
'Cause nothing compares
 Nothing compares to you
