[Leona Lewis]
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

    I think this is about people who cut, personally, and how people who're like that feel that they are ruining everything, especially the people around them.

    The song was written by the industrial rock artist trent reznor of the band nine inch nails and the song talks about his battle with depression and how he would give up everything to find happiness in a world that he feels he was never really a part of and the only thing that blocks these feelings temporarily is drink and drugs.
