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

the song was written by trent and his struggle with life,john incorperated into his own life, if you watch june as he sang you can feel the sorrow.even john felt it. a true artist can do this

THe way Johnny Cash interprets it the song seems more about loss, the human condition, and how no matter how much you have it won't last in the end.

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.

Songs can be interpreted differently by different people. All I know is that these lyrics fit almost perfectly with the tune of jingle bells

All of you who are postulating your theories about the meaning of this song, keep in mind that this is a cover. Trent Reznor wrote this song in the 90s. The needle he's talking about is for heroin.

This cover of the NIN song by Johnny is the best cover ever,granted it is about Trents struggles with dope but it meshed perfectly with Johnnys wild run too...wow everyone wants a do- over.

Still a great song, and a great cover :) very nice to play on guitar, and easy to sing along to :) but nobody can copy johnnys beautiful voice

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
