Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have(YouTube)+ LYRICS(azlyrics.com) "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...

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."
