Fingerprints

Album: One of the Boys (2008)
  • Voted most likely to end up on the back OK a milk box drink
    Looks like I'm letting them down
    'Cause seven, seventy-five isn't worth and hour of my hard work and time
    When you cant afford half the shit they advertise
    Oh I'm worth more then they ask more then the two-tag generation full of regret
    Oh I won't settle no, oh I can't settle

    I wanna break the mold, I wanna break the stereotype
    Fist in the air I'm not going down with out a fight
    It's my life
    And I'm sitting on the sidelines watching

    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me
    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    I'm leaving my fingerprints on you

    Representing you and me
    Don't you wanna go down in history?
    Rather then end up begging on the streets
    Trading under table favors for a place to sleep
    'Cause I'm worth more then this so stop writing prescriptions for my Ritalin
    I can't focus my attention

    I wanna break the mold, I wanna break the stereotype
    Fist in the air I'm not going down with out a fight
    It's my life
    And I'm sitting on the sidelines watching

    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me
    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    Don't give up
    Don't give in
    Because your arms on the rock
    Oh I'm not innocent, innocent, innocent, innocent

    Effortless and I'm sitting on the sidelines watching
    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me
    (I want you to remember me)
    Effortless and I'm sitting on the sidelines watching
    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me
    'Cause I'm leaving my fingerprints
    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    I'm leaving my fingerprints, in the endWriter/s: GREG WELLS, KATY PERRY
