JOHNNY CASH


Hurt Lyrics

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

You people are focusing on two lines of this song. He is talking about how he has lost so much because of what he's done and that he would try it over if he could.

I don't think it matters what the song is really about. it could mean many things to many didn't people. Just like how a drwing or painting invokes different emotions in different people. :D

Someone who has hurt the people they luv and it's too late to go back and save it. Reminds me of my mentally ill mother who has lost me.

I like both versions, but the Johnny Cash version connects with me more. As far as which is better, there is no such thing. Your opinion isn't fact, it's your opinion.

trent sang it with despair and anger. johnny sang it with regret and longing.. both are emotional, raw, great performances.

I think this song is about his drug addiction but I think it also talk about the hopes of an old man who wishes he did things different.

It pulls at your heart unbelievably. I can't relate to it, but the feeling it gives me moves me to tears. It's songs like this that words simply can't describe.
