HURT

Che dire?

Certe volte i testi delle canzoni sono “poesie”.

Leggete, per esempio, le parole di questa canzone dei Nine Inch Nails del 1994 e stupitevi per la loro noncurante e sfrontata sincerità!

Non la traduco perché è facile da capire. Parla di vecchiaia, di rimpianti, di solitudine.

Parla della vita, parla di noi.

Johnny Cash ne fece una cover che, come spesso succede, si rivelò essere più bella e struggente dell’originale.

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

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
