From the album "The man comes around" by Johnny Cash. A truly great album.
Song Title "Hurt" written by Trent Reznor.


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 hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My ssweetest 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

Bumping it back up for Jon.

If these aren't the saddest, and most heartbreaking lyrics written, then I've missed something.

I love this song. I have learned it on the guitar (it's fairly easy for those who play here). For those who are also interested, Sevendust does a tribute to Johnny Cash and they play the song "Hurt" as well. It is also very touching.

I love this song! My favorite part of the songs saga is that when Trent Reznor heard the Johnny Cash version he told Johnny "This song is forevermore yours" or something to that effect.

Trent Reznor is a god, and the original version of hurt is good, loved it when i first heard it, but after i heard the Johnny Cash version i couldnt listen to the NIN version because the Cash version is amazing. Johnny Cash owns this song!
