Original Song by Amber Lee Baker. Inspired by old-time-rock n' roll!


Your tattoos are indelible ink on my mind
They make you look so tough but you’re so kind
We only had a week Then I had to leave
Will my memories fade? Dissolving with time?

I should know better than to believe in romance
I should know better than to
(1.) hold onto our missed chance
(2.) hold on to that instance
(3.) try to cross the distance
You make my heart go Pitter-Patter
And I want to believe I start to believe … But I should know better

You gave me the luxury of letting go
So opposite to the world I always know
You were my man in a strange land
Your love pierced my heart like an arrow

I’m still missing you your ink won’t wash away
It might have been something more than love.
