Die Coverversion der irischen Sängerin Sinéad O’Connor entwickelte sich im Jahr 1990 zu einem internationalen kommerziellen Erfolg.
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 say 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 do only remind me of you. I went to the doctor and guess what he told me, guess what he told me. He said girl you better try to have fun, no matter what you'll do, but he's a fool. 'Cause nothing compares, nothing compares to 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.
Nothing compares, nothing compares to you.
