Hurt

Johnny Cash – Hurt (Cover)

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 will keep myself,
I would find a way.
