Johnny Cash: HurtThis poignant performance by Johnny Cash of Hurt of Nine Inch Nail’s is almost haunting, as it was recorded just prior to Cash’s untimely death. Whether or not a Johnny Cash fan, this performance is powerful and deep with emotion. Produced by Rick Rubin, ‘The Man Comes Around’ is the fourth and final Grammy Award-winning album Cash and Rubin have collaborated on.

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
(Chorus)

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

(Chorus)

If I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
