Ohhh... Ohhh... Ohhh...

No matter what you say about love,
I keep coming back for more,
Keep my hand in the fire,
Sooner or later, I get what I'm asking for

No matter what you say about life,
I learn every time I bleed
The truth is a stranger,
Soul is in danger

I gotta let my spirit be free to
Admit that I'm wrong and then change my mind
Sorry, but I have to move on and leave you behind

I can't waste time so give it a moment
I realize nothing's broken
No need to worry bout everything I've done
Live every second like you was my last one
Don't look back got a new direction
I loved you once
Needed protection
You're still a part of everything I do
You're on my heart just like a tattoo
Just like a tattoo
I'll always have you
(I'll always have you)
(I'll always have you)

I'm sick of playing all of these games
It's not about taking sides
When I looked in the mirror,
It didn't deliver

It hurt enough to think that I could stop
Admit that I'm wrong and then change my mind
Sorry, but I gotta be strong and leave you behind

I can't waste time so give it a moment
I realize nothing's broken
No need to worry bout everything I've done
Live every second like it was my last one
Don't look back got a new direction
I loved you once
Needed protection
You're still apart of everything I do
You're on my heart just like a tattoo
Just like a tattoo
I'll always have you
(I'll always have you)
(I'll always have you)

If I live every moment,
Won't change any moment,
There's still apart of me in you
I will never regret you
Still the memory of you
Marks everything I do...
Ooohh...

I can't waste time so give it a moment
I realize nothing's broken
No need to worry bout everything I've done
Live every second like it was my last one
Don't look back got a new direction
I loved you once
Needed protection
You're still a part of everything I do
You're in my heart just like a tattoo

I can't waste time so give it a moment
I realize nothing's broken
No need to worry bout everything I've done
Live every second like it was my last one
Don't look back got a new direction
I loved you once
Needed protection
You're still a part of everything I do
You're in my heart just like a tattoo

Just like a tattoo
I'll always have you

    this song is a great and emotional song for me. Jordin Sparks always helps me with her songs. well you see my mom died in a car wreck and well whenever i think of her i always think of her holding on to me when i am weak and that she will always be there for me just like a tattoo. i love u mom!

    this song is about still loving someone who hurt you and even though they hurt you ... they will always have u and no matter wot they do they influence every decision u make and u wud take them back in a heartbeat so its like having a tattoo u can cover it up ... but it will always be there

    Well, a tattoo is more or less permanent, so , technically once you've loved someone they will always be a part of your life even if you hate their guts (hate requires passion). I love the analogy of a tattoo though! I think it is beautiful! This is my third favorite jordan sparks song, number 1 being this is my now and number two being one step at a time.

    This song shows about two lovers that even both of them left each other,
    The love still remains or marks in their heart, that's why their love will never removed & the memory of both them is still in their mind but most of all it will stay in their heart... Sm! Le ^_^... #11
