Why does it take so long for you to leave me once you've said goodbye?
I wish it could be over quickly, clean and painless and dry
But your kiss has left it's taste with me and your hands have left their mark
My ears are full of whispers and murmurs in the dark

Why does it take so long for you to leave me now that you're not here?
I wish that I could fight this feelin' and make you disappear
But my body has a memory and it holds you close within
The smell of you at midnight, the flavor of your skin

Now I feel your fingerprints on my heart
I thought that I could handle you, I thought I was so smart
I feel your fingerprints, nothin' I can do
Oh, ain't it touching how I can't get over you

I can't believe I can't forget you, you didn't matter that much
Is it gonna take another man to wash away your touch?

Now I feel your fingerprints on my heart
I thought that I could handle you, I thought I was so smart
Now I feel your fingerprints, nothin' I can do
Oh, ain't it touching how I can't get over you

Ain't it touching how I can't get over, can't get over you
Oh, ain't it touching how I can't get over you
