"Anybody Seen My Baby?" as written by K. D. Lang, Ben Mink, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
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 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

And I was flippin' magazines
In that place on Mercer street
When I thought I spotted her

And getting on a motor bike
Looking really lady like
Didn't she just give me a wave?

Salty tears
It's three in the afternoon
Has she disappeared
Has 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

Oh yeah that's what I'm sayin'
We came to rock for Brooklyn
And Queens and Long Island
And all over the world
We came to rock for everybody like this

Anybody seen my baby (anybody, anybody seen my baby)
Anybody seen her, anybody seen her around
If I just close my eyes
I reach out, I reach out and touch the prize
Anybody seen her around

(Oh yeah) anybody seen my baby
Anybody seen her around (lost, lost and never found)
(Oh yeah) I must have called her a thousand times
Oh, sometimes I think she's just in my imagination

    General CommentWhen Keith Richards daughter heard it for the first time she told him it was a rip-off of kd lang's Constant Craving, which he claims he never heard. Just to play it safe they gave her a cowriting credit. She said she appreciated it but wouldn't have sued.

    General CommentBono??? wtf???
    I think this one is about that beautiful that is deep within us and he is looking for that... as we all are.. inthe video the old man rips his chest open and we see only the mechanics, not his soul, so we are looking for that beauty everywhere, when it actually within us... there are many pointers to this in the video. (old lady in the shower, man with a mechanic chest, black guy cutting his head apart and others).
