Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have(YouTube)
"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 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 heart...
Everywhere I look you're all I see.
Just a fading f* reminder of who I used to be."
