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

Letra en español de la canción de Johnny Cash, Hurt (letra traducida)
Hoy me hago daño,
para ver si sigo sintiendo.
Me concentro en el dolor,
la única cosa que es real.
La aguja hace un agujero,
el viejo pinchazo de siempre.
Intento acabar con ello del todo,
pero me acuerdo de todo.

¿En qué me he convertido,
mi más dulce amigo?
Todas las personas que conozco,
al final se van.
Y podrías tenerlo todo,
mi imperio de basura.
Te decepcionaré,
te haré sufrir.

Llevo esta corona de espinas,
sobre mi trono de mentiroso.
Lleno de pensamientos rotos
que no puedo arreglar.
Bajo las manchas del tiempo,
los sentimientos desaparecen.
Tú eres otra persona,
yo todavía sigo estando aquí.

¿En qué me he convertido,
mi más dulce amigo?
Todas las personas que conozco,
al final se van.
Y podrías tenerlo todo,
mi imperio de basura.
Te decepcionaré,
te haré sufrir.

Si pudiera empezar de nuevo,
a millones de millas de aquí.
Me mantendría alejado del resto,
encontraría una manera.

Johnny Cash - Sufrimiento.

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.

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!

This is my first experience of hearing Johnny Cash. Just wow. This hit me straight in my soul, made me cry.

I know what you are feeling so deeply. Lately a coverband was playing in my hometown, Zottegem and I realized how pure and honest his music has always been. Being there felt like a reminder to never forget the man Johnny Cash was. As always this song "Hurt" struck me to the bone. It makes me think about my 84years old father, but also about life itself...at the end we all want to be forgiven.
