Hurt

Listen to the song 'Hurt' by the American folk singer Johnny Cash and complete the gaps missing in the lyrics below while listening.

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the 
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a 
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all 
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 
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken 
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of 
The feelings disappear
You are someone 
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 
A million miles away
I would keep 
I would find a way
