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

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 just wrote this. Its my way of expressing myself. Someting im bad at when it comes to taking. So trying to make it rythm is easier to get it out. What i wrote below needs workbut i just wanted to share it. So please read and if you understand or feel the same then your not alone.

Where did i go wrong
How do i make it right
Feeling like a failure
Sitting on the sideline
Feeling so distant
From every person in my life
How can i change that
How can i make it right

I wake up in the day
Way past lunch time
Im wasting away
Like mountains on the shoreline
I try to pretend
That everythings fine
But im kidding myself
As i age like fine wine

Negative is active
And theres demons about
Feels like there following
In or out the house
Im hoping for a saviour
Cause i can't save my self
I think i need help
Cause i can't help myself

All im asking
Is for someone to reach out
And kindly borrow their time
To help me figure this out
There are tears in my eyes
As i write this down
I know ive got a voice
But why can't i shout

At the end of the day
When all is said and done
The reality for me is
Ive got a daughter and a son
One aged 2
And one aged 1
So that's the biggest reason
Why i will never run

When i was little
I remember feeling alone
Abandonment issues
Are ingrained in my dome
How do i shake it
And stop feeling like a joke
I hope one day i wake up
And walk down a new road

Closing that piano was like closing his coffin. That is truly one of the most emotional songs ever.

Jaz wow

Yes, I thought that too.

@ルFeitan of course they do. When the day comes for you to see, you will feel so foolish for living your life in the dark. I hope you get to realize it before it's too late. God bless you!

@Othman Eccedentesiast brings us back to the ground, like a "grounded" airplane. That's how I read it

Othman Eccedentesiast

What do you mean by grounds us all ?
