Hurt by Johnny Cash

The original version of this song was released by Nine Inch Nails in 1994 http://www.nin.com. Johnny Cash covered this song in 2002, following the loss of love of his life. The 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 liars 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

The original release had the line "crown of thorns" that was changed to "crown of shit". Great song by NIN that fits Johnny Cash's realization and confession.
