Hurt – Nine Inch Nails

di InsideMusic
Hurt, storico brano dei Nine Inch Nails del 1994 da The Donward Spiral, è stato oggetto di numerose cover. Più importante, quella dello storico cantautore country rock Johnny Cash, suo testamento poetico. Registrata nel 2002, Cash morì l’anno seguente: aveva 71 anni. Il brano è stato composto da Trent Reznor, lo storico frontman e cantante dei Nine Inch Nails. Altra cover importante è quella di Eddie Vedder, leader dei Pearl Jam.
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 shit
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
