about

There already exist at least two masterful versions of "Hurt" (written by Trent Reznor). The original by Nine Inch Nails, the other by the inimitable Johnny Cash... Hope this interpretation adds to your appreciation of this hauntingly beautiful song. Love, j.

lyrics

Hurt
Words & Music 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 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 heal myself
I would find a way...
