Deep and slow, that's how it goes
If anyone asks, yeah I already know
'Cause I got this pain in my chest
Every time I swim to consciousness
And I misspelled every word perfectly
Every mistake made was purposely
And my head is pounding to the beat of my heart

You are a broken heart tattoo
I'll have forever on my chest
For a love that I have lost
But never could forget

Say what you have to say
Try not to cry
This is just not what you wanted
At this point in your life
It's so hard to stay
When all you want to do is ride
I totally get you, I was a birdcage
And you were meant to fly

I shook ‘til I came out of it [x4]
Let’s sit down, we’ll sit down proud
We’ll sit down proud
We’ll sit down

Nothing matters, the importance of nothing [x3]
That's what you taught me
When I was barely listening
Nothing matters, the importance of nothing [x3]
Nothing matters, nothing matters

    General CommentI just cannot believe that I'm the only one so far to comment on such a fantastically wonderful song! With that being said, I use the line,
    "You are a broken heart tattoo,
    I'll have forever on my chest,
    For a love that I have lost,
    But never will forget."
    on a regular basis. It's just so amazing! The symbolism here is outstanding.
    The tattoo will be forever on his chest, but it's just any tattoo it's a broken heart tattoo that maybe the character got after breaking it off...? But the thing is that it represents the next line, of for a love that I have lost (broken heart) but never will forget (tattoo). I don't know maybe I'm just being WAAAY to over the top in love with these couple of lines.
