Há alguns anos atrás, o Tola que me apresentou o trabalho do Johnny Cash. Gostei logo de cara do tom soturno daquilo que ouvi.

Uns dias atrás, descobri que uma das minhas músicas prediletas dele é originalmente do Nine Inch Nails: Hurt.

Mesmo com a original do NIN, eu ainda prefiro muito mais a versão do Johnny Cash.

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 hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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
