I asked it where it had been
Then we started arguing
I'm just like the other ones
But I don't believe you think I'm dumb
And where did all the money go?
Did jesus come and no one know?

Sugar, spice and insulin
Hold me 'til you're back again
'Cause it feels like I'm losing you
When it feels like I'm losing you

We can try to laugh it off, I guess
Claiming blissful listlessness
But I miss, how it used to be
She only looks like you
When it's using me

Her silver spoon oblivion
Paints her blue and back again
While I hear...
I love you
I need you
I'm still here

Then I fear that I'm losing you
When it feels like I'm losing you
When it feels like I'm losing you
Then it feels like I'm losing you So do you do what you do for the love of it ?
Or do you do what you do with the thought of this?
Tell me my love, am I enough...

So I was still trying and fighting
And pushing in vein
And all that I did just to stop it
Would add to it's strength
Because a juggernaut will not stop even with you in the way

When it's given the choice of its life or to lose
I'm not so sure just which one you will choose

But I'm losing you
It feels like I'm losing you
When it feels like I'm losing you
then I fear that I'm losing you

So do you do what you do for the love of it
Or do you do what you do with the thought of this
Tell me my loves
Was I enough?

    General CommentI cant believe nobody has commented this yet. Hurt is simply one of the greatest bands out there today, along side with tool. This is probably one of my favorite tracks on the album. Everything I've ever felt the need to tell my girlfriend, was established in this song.

    General CommentI think this song is about being in a relationship with someone who does drugs and just dealing with them through their highs. It seems like he feels useless and that he isn't enough for her because she still has to use drugs and he feels like he's losing her to the drugs. I think the drug of choice is heroin because of the silver spoon and blue skin references but it could be anything. I love the way his voice goes from haunting depiction to desperate screams. Very eery and emotional song, love it. See Hurt live they are amazingly talented musicians.

    General Commentcan anyone explain to me what he means by:
    But I miss, how it used to be
    She only looks like you
    When it's using me

    General CommentI agree with pebbles that it's about a relationship and I believe also she's doing heroin. "She only looks like you when it's using me" to me means she's not the same when she's fucked up and "it" refers to her body but it's not her. He also throws in the insulin (used by needle), silver spoon, and blue skin references, uses the word "vein" conveniantly, and I believe the "juggernaut" is heroin as well.

    All that aside, I love listening to him singing "and I fear that I'm losing you", cuz it's just powerful the way he says it, and you can lose people in so many ways. That one line gives me an emotional "rush".

    General CommentSo I was still trying and fighting
    And pushing in vein

    vein should be vain..
    which means his trying and fighting is not working

    General CommentVein is a powerful double entendre though if you take the meaning of the song to be about herion.
