It doesn't happen too often anymore but I'll start to hear the distinct tune and that unforgettable voice of Sinead O Connor and I don't let the song get too far and I switch the station. I can't bear to hear the music let alone the lyrics.
It's been seven hours and fifteen days........ Since u took your love away........ I go out every night and sleep all day........... Since u took your love away ....
The song Nothing Compares 2 U is one of those songs to tears deep to my heart. It has been twenty one years and it still brings me back to the day that I chose it to cry to every time I listened to it. I wanted to feel the pain then. I wanted to shed those tears for the loss of my first love. We experienced so many highs and lows in our erratic relationship that when it was finally over, I felt like my life was over.
I know that looking back now that I was very young and naive and it's impossible to feel like your life is over when you realize that the person you truly loved has left you. But hearing that song still brings on the painful emotions that I can't listen to it. I don't want to be brought to that place in my life through that song. I closed the door on the past in my life, good or bad.
