Line(s) of the Day #Hurt

Johnny Cash Hurt

Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

Taken from the song Hurt by music legend Johnny Cash, from his final studio album American IV: The Man Comes Around (2002). Cash’s version of Nine Inch Nail’s song (and its highly emotive video), was a huge success and has long been one of my favourite covers.


Line(s) of the Day #One

U2 One

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it’s all I got
We’re one
But we’re not the same
We hurt each other
Then we do it again

Taken from the song One by the Irish rock band U2, from their seventh studio album Achtung Baby (1991). Widely considered one of the best songs ever written, it showcases the songwriting ability of their lead singer Bono, who has demonstrated it in other songs such as If God would send his Angels and Beautiful Day.
