I Can Eat My Dinner In A Fancy Restaurant

Are you hungry? You soon will be! Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the appetizing theme: BREAKFAST/BRUNCH/DINNER/LUNCH/SNACK/SUPPER

Food, Dish, Restaurant, Meal, Gourmet

I suppose I picked this song because it is highly emotional and deeply dramatic – and this is exactly the kind of music I want to listen to at the moment – it helps me to diffuse the turbulence within!

There was a time when a song like this would be sheer torture to hear…but now that Jack and I have made peace…this just seems like a beautiful song. Yet…in saying that I acknowledge that some people will hear this song and be in floods of tears. Today…I am going to let myself shed a few tears with you.

Tissues at the ready…this is the incredible “Nothing Compares To You” recorded by Sinéad O’Connor.

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’ve 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 and guess what he told me?
Guess what he told me?
He said, “Girl, you better try to 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

Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

  1. Nice pick Mel. Sinead O’Connor shifted the lyrics of this Prince song from being a break-up ballad to an exploration of loss, dedicating the song to her mother who died the same year the song had been originally released.
