Under My Skin

I've got you under my skin - or perhaps you've gotten under mine
I'm not sure
I'm uncertain
But it itches
Sometimes it irritates
You're under my skin

It's like a tattoo
A needle piercing my flesh
To leave a mark
That doesn't go
That leaves a gleaming reminder of the choice made

I like you under my skin sometimes
A lot of the time
When it doesn't irritate
When it doesn't sting
The mark is pretty

Am I under your skin?
Does it itch, and scar and irritate?
Do you try to ignore it
Has it healed?

Coz I know
I've still got you under my skin.
