Hurt

I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I foucs 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
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

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

--Johnny Cash

Hope all is well with you.

Unless you are talking about working out so hard that it hurts! (which is honestly what I first thought! Sorry, I guess I am an insensitve atypical guy).

Ahem....I hope that you find a way out of the pain you are in and stay strong!

I think this is a nine inch nails song. Most excellent song.
