The Daily Me (Journal) Favorite Song – 12/28/16

Today’s prompt comes from 100 Inspirational Journal Prompts by Melissa Bolton @ The Mogul Mom

What’s your favorite song and why?

Nothing Compares 2 U by Prince is my favorite song. There was a time when it held profound meaning for me. I’d lost my sense of self and an intriguing man came into my life and helped me find it again. Like me, he loved Prince’s music and we would sit for hours smoking weed, drinking tequila and listening to Prince. Our favorite song at the time was Kiss, but when this guy left my life, Nothing Compares 2 U became more significant to me.

Nothing Compares 2 U by Prince w/Rosie Gaines

It’s been seven hours and thirteen 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 who ever I choose
Eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant, oh yeah
But nothing, nothing can take away these blues

Nothing compares, nothing compares to you
Oh baby

It’s been so lonely without you here
I’m like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop this lonely rain from falling
Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?

Oh baby
I can put my arms around every boy I see, oh yeah
But they only remind me of you

All my dames remind me of you too girl, oh yeah

I went to the doctor, guess what he told me
What’d he tell you?

Guess what he told me
I’m listening

He said, Rosie
What?

Try to have fun no matter what you do
You want to tell me why?

He’s a fool

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you

Oh, baby
Hu, hu, tenor man, play it for me

All the flowers that you planted, sugar
In the backyard all died when you went away

Oh baby, I know that living with me baby
Is sometimes hard, sometimes hard
But I’m willing, I’m willing to give it one more try

One more try
Please do you know why, do you know why

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you

Oh, baby
Every time I say

Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you

Rosie Gaines
