nothing compares to you

Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2002
I heard this song when I left work for lunch. It reminded me of something I had forgotten. Her, the other woman, the cause of all this painin our first apartment doing sign language to this song. Staring at him. Never looking at me. I knew then and I sat silent. I know now and Im still silent. So much has changed, I am not the same. And yet, its all the same. I love him, he doesnt love me back on the same highway. Hes going the other way. She's gone...no one won anything. I hope someone rips her life apart... I try not to hang onto those thoughts, but I can't help them. I hate her. I try so hard to let it all go...but I am constantly reminded. I can't even turn my radio on anymore. I pulled over on 4th street just to cry....

Nothing Compares 2 U

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 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, 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 ...
