Fingerprints (vom Album: Death Of A Ladies Man)

I touched you once too often

Now I don't know who I am

My fingerprints were missing

When I wiped away the jam

Yes I called my fingerprints all night

But they don't seem to care

The last time that I saw them

They were leafing through your hair

Fingerprints, fingerprints

Where are you now my fingerprints?

Yeah I thought I'd leave this morning

So I emptied out your drawer

A hundred thousand fingerprints

They floated to the floor

You know you hardly stopped to pick them up

You don't care what you lose

Ah you don't even seem to know

Whose fingerprints are whose

Fingerprints, fingerprints

Where are you now my fingerprints?

And now you want to marry me

You want to take me down the aisle

You want to throw confetti fingerprints

You know that's not my style

O sure I'd like to marry you

But I can't face the dawn

With any girl who knew me

When my fingerprints were on

Fingerprints, fingerprints

Where are you now my fingerprints?
