   D                   A
I touched you once too often
       D               A
Now I don't know who I am
    D                 A
My fingerprints were missing
        D              A
When I wiped away the jam

       D
Yes I called my fingerprints all night
                     A
But they don't seem to care

The last time that I saw them
                                D    -------
They were leafing through your hair

        G             D
Fingerprints, fingerprints
      Em       A              D . A . |D . A . |
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
No, 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, fingerprints
Where are you now, my fingerprints?
