Jennifer Hanson – Half A Heart Tattoo lyrics

She was touching up her makeup
I was standing next in line
I couldn't help but notice
'neath those powder room lights
It was china red outlined in black
On the left side of her shoulder
In plain view
I just had to ask, "hey, what's with that half heart tattoo? "

She glanced at me through the mirror
And started to laugh
She said, "i know this looks funny but there is another half
And it's china red outlined in black on the right side of his shoulder
Last I knew
Yeah somewhere out there is a match to this
Half a heart tattoo"

"well that last I heard some redhead
Caught his eye in new orleans
And before that it was a blonde in baton rouge
I know there's at least a dozen gals out sporting one of these
Thinking that they're the only fool
That he left with a hear tattoo"

Well girl you get my symphony
I knew a guy like that
I said, "you ain't gonna believe this"
Then I pulled my jacket back
"yeah it's china red outlined in black on the left side of my shoulder
Still fairly new
I guess there's just a whole mess of us
With a half a heart tattoo"

Well the last I heard he moved in
With some dancer from L. A.
But I'm betting that won't last a week or two
He loves them long enough to leave his mark
And he's so good they never have a clue
'til they're stuck with a half a heart tattoo
So ladies make sure that guy standing next to you
Ain't wearing no half a heart tattoo
