Hurt
Johnny Cash 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 will keep myself
I would find a way

I miss my friends and I found out
the only way to beat the game is
to Keep Holding onto
God's Unchanging Hand.
Keep Trusting, Praying, Praising God
and One Glorious Day.
The Faithful Servant's of God
Will be Reunited with Our
Loved Ones in Heaven.
I'm Looking Forward to that Day.

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'm 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

Cash's version of this song is great, but the old footage interspersed throughout the video just enhances the meaning and pushes it over the top. Like life flashing before his eyes in his final days.

David Silva

Exactly

Some songs have the ability to change your life for a moment. They accompany you to a place you would never have come across yourself. They grab your life and put you in the light of eternity for a tiny little moment. But it feels like so much more. I owe my entire youth to this song. And I dedicate my whole life to this incredible story... Because your mine I walk the line

it’s beautiful that this song was originally sang by a young man who was searching for himself that was just beginning life, and was then covered by a man at the end of his life looking back at his accomplishments and wishing he could go back. truly beautiful, and truly one of the greatest covers of a song ever.

Thomas Jefferson

Trent Reznor even said that this song now belongs to Johnny Cash. That shit cuts deep man.
