Songs For A Hopeless Apology (III)

Johnny Cash – Hurt

Another case of a music legend turning another band’s hit (Nine Inch Nails') into an instant jewel. One year before he died in his early eighties, enfant terrible Cash recorded this sad and at the time peaceful tune that, helped by an stunning music video, ended symbolizing his legacy. 

“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”

Written by Axialbis one year before.
