Lyrics


She confessed her love to me

Then she vanished on the breeze

Trying to hold on to that was just impossible


She was more than beautiful

Closer to ethereal

With a kind of down-to-earth flavor


Close my eyes

It's three in the afternoon

Then I I realize

That she's really gone for good


Anybody seen my baby

Anybody seen her around

Love has gone and made me blind

I've looked but I just can't find

She has gotten lost in the crowd


I was flippin' magazines

In that place on Mercer Street

When I thought I spotted her


Getting on a motor bike

Looking rather lady like

Didn't she just give me a wave?


Salty tears

It's three in the afternoon

Has she disappeared

Is she really gone for good


Anybody seen my baby

Anybody seen her around

If I just close my eyes

I reach out and touch the prize

Anybody seen her around


Anybody seen my baby

Anybody seen her around

If I just close my eyes

I reach out reach out and touch the prize

Anybody seen her around


Anybody seen my baby

Anybody seen her around

Lost, lost and never found

I must have I must have called her a thousand times

Sometimes I just think she's just in my imagination


Lost in the crowd
