Intro (wordless vocals w/fuzz guitar) [2X]:

(spoken)

One month ago today
I was happy as a lark
But now I go for walks
To the movies - maybe to the park

And have a seat on the same old bench
To watch the children play (huh)
You know, tomorrow is their future
But to me, just another day

They all gather around me
They seem to know my name
We laugh, tell a few jokes
But it still doesnґt ease my pain

I know I canґt hide from a memory
ґThough day after day Iґve tried
I keep sayinґ sheґll be back
But today again I lied

Verse 1:

Oh, I see her face everywhere I go
On the street, and even at the picture show
Have you seen her?
Tell me, have you seen her?

Verse 2:

Oh, I hear her voice as the cold winds blow
In the sweet music on my radio
Have you seen her?
Tell me, have you seen her?

Bridge:

Why, oh, why
Did she have to leave and go away [2: oh, yeah]
Oh-oh-oh, Iґve been used to havinґ someone to lean on
And Iґm lost
Baby, Iґm lost (Oh)

[Repeat verse w/wordless vocal first two lines (2X)]

Verse 3:

Oh, she left her kiss upon my lips
But left that break within my heart
Have you seen her?
Tell me, have you seen her?

Verse 4:

Oh, I see her hand reaching out to me
Only she can set me free
Have you seen her?
Tell me, have you seen her?

[Repeat bridge]

[Repeat verse w/wordless vocal first 2 lines (4X)]

(spoken over 2nd and 3rd repeats):

As another day comes to an end
Iґm lookinґ for a letter or somethinґ
Anything that she would send
With all the people I know
Iґm still a lonely man
You know, itґs funny
I thought I had her in the palm of my hand

Coda [repeat to fade]:

Have you seen her
Tell me, have you seen her (tell me, have you seen her?)

    Its about a man who did not value the lady that she was with at the moment and now that she has left him, he now sees how important she was

    Millennium middle and pompano beach high.

    Both are good schools. She helps them with their work and cooks them dinner.

    This song should be good for her 8th grade daughter.

    This song should be dedicated to high school girls.

    Class of 2012.

    Elaine can dance to this song while her daughters do their homework.
    Nice girls she has. Eighth grade rocks at mms. Juniors rock at pbhs.
