Johnny Cash - 'Hurt"



"Hurt"
(originally by Nine Inch Nails)

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
And you could have it all 
My empire of dirt 
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts 
I cannot repair 
Beneath the stains of time 
The feelings disappear 
You are someone else
I am still right here 

What have I become 
My sweetest friend 
Everyone I know goes away 
In the end 
And you could have it all
My empire of 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
