There's No Crying in Baseball 

"Hurt" as performed by Johnny Cash:

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

The video for that almost made me cry. I personally think it's better than the NIN version.

Lacy,

I agree. It almost makes me cry when I see it, too. I think the first time I saw it, I did.
