Hurt


If you have not had the chance to hear Johnny Cash's version of Hurt, you should go listen to it now.
It's a very sad song, but Cash's version is painful and beautiful to hear.
You can see the video at Amazon

Nine Inch Nails - Hurt

i hurt myself today
to see if i still feel
i focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but i remember everything

what have i become?
my sweetest friend
everyone i know
goes away in the end
you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt

i wear this crown of shit
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
i cannot repair
beneath the stain of time
the feeling disappears
you are someone else
i am still right here

what have i become?
my sweetest friend
everyone i know
goes away in the end
you could have it all
my empire or dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt

if i could start again
a million miles away
i would keep myself
i would find a way
