Hurt Chords/Lyrics/Verse 

C            D      Am       C           D       Am
I hurt myself today     to see if I still feel
C           D        Am              C        D             Am
I focus on the pain      the only thing that's real
C         D                  Am               C       D        Am
The needle tears a hole       the old familiar sting
        C       D       Am                     C             D       G
Try to kill it all away      but I remember everything

Hurt Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

Am                    F                    C             G
What have I become? My sweetest friend
Am                 F               C                 G
Everyone I know goes away in the end
Am                                 F              C           G
And you could have it all My empire of dirt
Am                    F                 G           Am
I will let you down I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns   upon my liars chair
C               D        Am        C     D       Am
Full of broken thoughts   I cannot repair
C                    D            Am          C          D        Am
Beneath the stains of time   the feeling disappears

You are someone else         I am still right here

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

Am                      F              C                G
If I could start again a million miles away
Am                    F             G               Am
I would keep myself I would find a way
