Fingerprints

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?.

Fingerprints, oh fingerprints
Where are you now my fingerprints?.
