I want a heart tattoo
I want it to hurt really bad
That's how I'll know
I'll know it's real
A real tattoo
I wanna say "what's up dad?"
Who knows how you'd feel about that
What do you want me to say?
It's never going away
My heart tattoo
That's what I'll
That's what I'll do
I'll get a heart
A heart tattoo
I want a heart tattoo
I'll never get it removed
That's how I'll know
I'll know it's real
A real tattoo
I know that it looks bad
But it's the only one I have
What do you want me to say?
It's never going away
My heart tattoo
That's what I'll
That's what I'll do
I'll get a heart
A heart tattoo
(I know that it looks bad)
A heart tattoo
(But it's the only one I have)
A heart tattoo
(I know that it looks bad)
A heart tattoo
(I know)

    General CommentThe singer is dealing with the fact that he acted in a selfish, heartless way. He's probably got a history of this behavior.

    The only way he can "have a heart" and behave in a way that's not selfish is to fake it -- to get a tattoo of a heart in lieu of the real heart that he doesn't have.
