It’s been seven hours and sixteen 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 whoever I choose I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant But nothing 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, where did I go wrong?
I can throw my arms around any girl I choose But it just reminds me of you I went to the doctor and guess what he told me? He said, “Boy, you better try to have fun no matter what you do” But he’s a fool
‘Cause nothing compares Nothing compares to you, hey
All the flowers that you planted, mama In your backyard All died when you went away And I know living with me is sometimes hard But I’m willing to give it another try
‘Cause nothing compares Nothing compares to you Nothing compares Nothing compares to you, to you To you
