Nine Inch Nails_Something I can never have

Trent Reznor may be the father of Industrial Rock but some of his best songs are quiet, stripped down affairs. The poignant Something I Can Never Have from Nine Inch Nails’ 1989 debut album Pretty Hate Machine is a (strong) case in point. Listen n get goosebumps :).

I still recall the taste of your tears
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore
Scraping through my head till I don’t want to sleep anymore
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I’m down to just one thing and I’m starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I just want something
I just want something I can never haveYou always were the one to show me how
Back then I couldn’t do the things that I can do now
This thing is slowly taking me apart
Grey would be the color if I had a heartCome on tell me
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I’m down to just one thing and I’m starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I just want something
I just want something I can never have

In this place it seems like such a shame
Though it all looks different now, I know it’s still the same
Everywhere I look you’re all I see
Just a fading fucking reminder of who I used to be

Come on tell me
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I’m down to just one thing and I’m starting to scare myself
You make this all go away
You make this all go away
I just want something
I just want something I can never have
I just want something I can never have
