"Hurt" - Johnny Cash


Recommended Posts

Hey all - Maybe you guys have already heard it, but the first part of the song "Hurt" by Johnny Cash rings pretty ture. I am not into SI, I choose to hurt myself with thoughts, but I heard this song and thought of you all. Hang in there.

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 thorns

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 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

Written by Trent Reznor and first performed by Nine Inch Nails. Still, JC's version does have a world of hurt behind it.

I tend to prefer the Cash version when I'm down and not necessarily wanting to smash things, though I love NIN. Substituting "thorns" for "shit" also made it accessible to a somewhat larger audience.

I am listening to it now for the thousandth time and it still brings the hair of my neck to attention. I am not sure if the mood it brings is positive or negative though. It is an amazing song though.
