"Haven't Seen For A While" as written by and Pat Mc Gee....
As I lie here in bed, your smile fills my head
And I'm using this pen to talk to you, from a southern way
It's been weeks since I've seen you last
The time away from you ain't moving too fast
Wishing my summer away just to see you again

I'm there by your side, lookin' in your eyes
Seeing you with me, what else could there be?
If I could get away, I'd be there today
You'd be wearing that smile
Haven't seen for a while
Haven't seen for a while

Wake up everyday, go through the same routine
Go to work, come home
What does it all really mean?
Check the mail just hoping to find
Another note from you would ease my mind
It's five-fifteen
I can picture you driving home from your same old scene
In five you'll hear the phone ringing
Have to settle for talking again


I can picture you now
You're standing outside your house
The breeze is blowing off your northern shore
I'm loving you more
I long for the days when there's no goodbyes
Wish I could see you
I'd wipe the tears from your eyes
Tell you everything's all right, lay you down
Say to you goodnight

    General CommentThis song to me seems like its about his g/f and how much he misses her during the months hes on tour and doesn't get to see her. This is a great song and one of my favorite bands out there. Pat mcGee is one of the best song writers i have heard in a while.

    General CommentMy friend's boyfriend was home visiting her (he's a marine) and when they were driving down the road he started crying because he had to leave her again the next day. So she pulled over into a parking lot and they slow danced to this song. It was the cutest thing and I think about it everytime I hear this song. I love this song.

    Song MeaningMy mom died suddenly two months ago today at 74 years old. I found Pat McGee through a grieving site. Been playing their playlist. The song, for me, means I miss my mom... I can't get there yet, but one day I will hopefully see her in Heaven. I miss her smile. The way that she carried so much about me.

    I became an only daughter after my sister died 15 years ago.
