“Nothing Compares 2 U” – performed by Sinead 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 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 try to have fun no matter what you do
but he’s a fool
‘Cause nothing compares 2 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 2 you

 “Nothing Compares 2 U” was performed by Sinead O’Connor and it was written by Prince Rogers Nelson.

The song is an appropriate choice during a funeral service or during a memorial after the body has already gone through basic cremation because the lyrics invoke a special meaning of longing.

If you carefully read the lines of the song, you will notice that the singer actually tells the deceased loved one that no one can ever replace her in his life even if he has moved on into another relationship or make a new family with other people.

The experiences that they have shared together will always remain special and these involvements also paved way to how the living person sees life and treats his or her new relationships moving forward.

As the lyrics of the song say, “it’s been so lonely without you here”, this just shows the genuine feeling of loss which is experienced by all people who have lost a partner or a loved one. They cry and try to gather their emotions and they can’t help but miss that person.

This song touches so many hearts simply because it tells all the souls of the dead that they will never be forgotten even when they have passed away. You can use this song as an inspiration to write funeral poems and verses which you can share to others during the service.
