Those innocent eyes(eyes).
That smile on your face makes it easy to trust you
If they only knew, the girl with the tattoo, like I do
Doin' what you doin' just to get you where you goin', yeah I see you, baby
Just don't lose yourself along the way, no
Cus you're doin' what you doin'
Just to get you where you're goin' and I see it baby
Aint too many others gon' have sh*t to say, I do
Cuz I knew... the girl with the tattoo, yeah
Oh yeah I knew, the girl with the tattoo
I use to know her

    He knew this girl and specifically the tattoo, which reminded him of her. But she left to change her life, learn some new things, and basically find herself. He understands why she left and still loves her for who she is... So he hopes she doesn't change too much and stays true to herself.

    I think the song is about a prostitute, trying to get by in a big city or something .
    "those innocent eyes that smile on your face makes it easy to trust you. "
    Maybe that's how she lures in her pimps and stuff
    "if they only knew the girl with the tattoo like i do. "
    He knows that once upon a time, she wasn't like this. She had something going for her, but it all went away. Her pimps and stuff probably only know her as 'hey, this chick's fine, i got money and i'm looking for a good time. '
    "doing what you're doing just to get to where you're going. "
    That's where my view kicks in. She's doing this so she can get the money to do something with herself.
    "yeah, i see you, baby. "
    He sees her point.
    "just don't lose yourself along the way. "
    Don't get yourself caught or kept as a private slave-prostitute.
    And then the rest of the song really repeats itself. ♥

    Its just a methapor, for what he see's in this girl. He knows she's doing what she needs to do to get by and he doesn't blame her for it. Of course females are going to have something to say about it but thats just how life is...
