Nothing Compares 2 U

Words & Music:



F                         C            Dm                  F        C

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.

F                              C

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant.

     Dm                                 A

But, nothing, I said, nothing can take away these blues.

       Eb         Bb     Dm                 C

'Cause nothing compares, nothing compares 2 U.


It's been so lonely without U 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 only remind me of U.

I went to the doctor and guess what he told me guess what he told me

He said: "Girl, U better try to have fun no matter what U do." 

But he's a fool.

'Cause nothing compares, nothing compares 2 U.


All the flowers that U planted in the backyard all died when U went away.

I know that living with U baby was sometimes hard,

But I'm willing 2 give U another try.

'Cause nothing compares, nothing compares 2 U.
