HURT BY JOHNNY CASH

HURT BY JOHNNY CASH

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
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…

Why did
You shoot
that arrow
of pain
The hurt
your intention
went straight
to my heart
I want to
tell you
to stay
away
But you
are my
twin flame
Time heals
all wounds
and in time
our love will
heal too
You see
I have
what we
need
It’s called
FAITH

JUST BREATHE

Your deep dark knows my pain
when you lose your mind
will you remember me
before I go insane?

We wear our wild eyes
like fire diamonds aglow
weeping for love
holding on to sanity.

Beyond these words we pray
making love to stay here
can you find me still lost
before you dance away?

In so foolish a fault
it came the hurt
with vibrancy of emotions
ceremoniously drowning me
with ripples of blame
expiated feelings
arouse a crave
missing your haze
beckoning sunrise
to kiss your mind
loving you in
blushing euphoria.
