F                         C
It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Dm                             F  C
since you took your love away
F                        C
I go out every night and sleep all day
Dm                             F  C
since you took your love away
F                                 C
Since you been gone I can do what-ever I want
Dm                           F  C
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
'cos nothing compares
Dm         C
nothing compares 2 U.


F		       C
It's been so lonely without U here
Dm                             F  C
like a bird without a song
F			     C
nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Dm                          Bb
tell me baby where did I go wrong?
F		                C
I could put my arms around every boy I see
Dm                             F  C
but they only remind me of U.
F		                      C
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me guess what he told me
Dm                             		        A
he said: "girl U better try to have fun no matter what U do"
A
but he's a fool
     Eb         Bb
'cos nothing compares
Dm         C
nothing compares 2U.

F C Dm F C F C Dm F C

F		      
All the flowers that U planted mama
C
in the back yard
Dm                          F  C
all died when U went away
F		                   C 
I know that living with U baby was sometimes hard
Dm                               A
but I'm willing 2 give U another try
  Eb         Bb
nothing compares
Dm         C
nothing compares 2U.
  Eb         Bb
nothing compares
Dm         C
nothing compares 2U.
  Eb         Bb
nothing compares
Dm         C
nothing compares 2U.

  1. best uke chords for this song out there!

  2. Thanks for the chords! This song is orginally by Prince though, seems a shame for Sinead and the Phonics to get all the credit
