"Painted On My Heart" as written by and Diane Warren....
I thought . . .you'd be out of my mind
And i'd finally found a way to
Learn to live without you
I thought . . .it was just a matter of time
Till I had a hundred reasons
Not to think about you

But it's just not so
and after all this time
I still can't let go

I've still got your face
Painted on my heard
Carved upon my soul
Etched upon my memory . . .baby

And I've got your kiss
Still
Burning on my lips
The touch of her fingertips
Is left so deep inside of me . . .baby

I was trying
Everything that I can
To get my heart to forget you
But it just can't seem to

I guess it's just no use
In every part of me
is still a part of you

And I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Carved upon my soul
Etched upon my memory . . .baby

And I've got your kiss
Still
Burning on my lips
The tough of her fingertips
Is left so deep inside of me . . .baby

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart
Painted on my heart . . .baby

Something in your eyes keeps haunting
Me
I'm trying to forget you
But I know there ain't no wayto
Chase you from my mind

I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Carved upon my soul
Etched upon my memory . . .baby

And I've got your kiss
Still
Burning on my lips
The touch of her fingertips
Is left so deep inside of me . . .baby

I've still got your face
I've still got your face
Painted on my heart
Painted on my h-e-a-are-t

Baby
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on
Baby

Come on
Come on
Baby

Come on
Come on
Baby

On my h-e-a-are-t
I've still got your face
Painted on my heart

    General CommentIf you ask me, it is about a guy at a farmer's market who is trying to sell his chickens that he raised from little chicks and is having separation anxiety.... He also must double as a face painter at the market since he painted a likeness of the chickens on his chest (over his heart).

    General CommentI first heard this song on the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds." I knew right then that I had to download it. Now, after having listened to the words, I love it even more. This song is obviously about a lost love. Although he would like to get her out of his mind, he cannot manage to do it. No matter what he does, he is still reminded of her.

    General CommentWhat an amazing song...it really cuts into you! There's nothing like not being able to get over someone, especially when they've long since moved on. I also think this song fits perfectly in the movie Gone in 60 seconds except that in that case the girl still felt something for the guy...either way its a great song.

    General Commentthis song rocks...whether or not you end up losing the person you love, this song describes some of the passion and obsession that comes with loving a person who really gets under your skin

    General Commenti can totaly relate to this song on so many levels so many god damn levels, the first time i heard this song was on Much Music and then on VG 18 i can relate so much... anyone can when soemone is dumped they just need to find a reason but they cant and they just remember every waking day they spent with them... and in a non gay way... this can aslo remind you of your friends you once had and maybe still have

    General CommentI first heard this song in the movie "Gone in 60 seconds". I cried at the end of the credits because of the words to this song. It was only b/c my ex-fiance and I had just called it quits a few months prior and I just felt this song in my soul. It's BEAUTIFUL...

    General CommentYou know, this song fits the part in the movie so well, when Memphis and (Angelina's character) are in the car, waiting to boost the car, and they're talking about their past.....the song is about them. I'd have to agree that it's about a lost love, that was just a great relationship, and now it's gone.
