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 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

Why something rather than nothing ?
Because of an uncaused, non contingent, first cause of all contingency...

God

What is the chief end of man ?
Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

Seek Christ Jesus the Redeemer

Listening to this one song has made me full of regrets over and over again. Then I remember my Father. The things he did and would do for his only son. My father was a man's, man. He served to many years in jail and came out broken and scared. My young family at the time gave him a reason and purpose to be happy and proud. He became an amazing grandfather to my son, amazing father in law to my Wife and learned to love and care again.
It was the last 2 weeks of arguments with my Wife that made me realize what he did for me that helped ME GET HERE.
He made me realize that love isn't to be scared of, selling drugs and trying to be a gangster wasn't my best interest and showed me I was wasting my life.
He pushed me to get a Real on the books job at 21 after not seeing me for 7 years after a arson job gine wrong.

He saved my whole life from prison after a horrible night of me drinking and eating benzos. HE sacrificed his safety and mental stability to save me from the past he was given.
He knew what, where and when.
Dad I miss you terribly and your guidance that's been instilled has gotten me so far.
Thank you for the visits and lectures as I fall asleep full of dark hidden secrets it's your voice that tells me not to worry, not to go visit or seek redemption from family's or victims.
It's Been you keeping me at home, husband and father to the life you helped me choose.
Brian King I can't tell you enough what you've done for me. Allyssa just brought up our last night drinking together when we threw that cripple fuck down the stairs.
I had to explain it wasn't an accident, we wanted a limp fool to break his hips easier to get him in that shopping cart and wheel him out to our pet cemetery.
Luckily she doesn't know that part.
She just knows your girlfriend upstairs knew and called a ambulance before we found the plywood to jump on.

Rip Dad
Rip Johnny
Rip to anyone that crossed paths with a upset young man that didn't know the difference between good, bad. Right, wrong
I would promise that young man felt every bit of pain he's inflicted upon each and everyone of you.

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.

Noah A

It was his lost song.

Maeve Mallory

It really does

Dee Dee

And the fact that June Carter Cash was watching him from the stairway with tears in her eyes... she knew, they both did, his time was coming to its end. How Poignant!

@Red Wine Drunk Randy Marsh I’m not shutting anyone down for caring, it’s just prettty fucking weird that out of ALL the people to ask how their day is doing, you ask the 8TH GRADER

Red Wine Drunk Randy Marsh
