Lonely but lonely, you wander and wander life's become a ritual of pain
You try every angle, relationships tangle it's always so drastically the same
Small but small things, talk it all rings I can't remember when life became so blind but then I found her, one chance in a million the girl with a tattoo like mine
The girl with a tattoo like mine
The fates and the furies had answered my prayers I thought it an original, I thought it one of a kind 'til I ell in love with the girl with a tattoo just like mine 'til I fell in love with the woman with a tattoo like mine. ..
Now it was at the grocery. . .how can I explain this? she leaned over to empty her cart
And I could see all the way to the express lane (if you know what I mean)
And there it was right next to her heart her blues my blues, our greens were the same a simple but purposeful design. . .
And then she caught me staring
And I said, "i-i've got one of those"
To the girl with a tattoo like mine. . .
Now some people find their soulmates others take up tennis some marry their childhood sweethearts and are done but most of us are lonely, downhearted, distracted but me, now I know i've got something in common with one
Through all the years, and all of the tears late at night in the dark life's become a terror but now that she is here, things seem focused and clear and when I look at her I reflect back like a mirror when I look at her I reflect back just like a mirror since I fell in love with the girl with a tattoo like mine. . . and I hope. . .that she will always be my friend. .
