Music by daryl hall
Lyrics by daryl hall, john oates, sara allen

Keep on missing each other
Our worlds out of order
All I see is missed opportunity

Will we ever learn
In trouble where will we turn
And when youre losing the fight
Whos your white knight gonna be
Feel you drift away
(oh baby) you dont hear what Im sayin
We had a chance to stay together
Ooh forever
But we got lost in the dream

Keep on missing each other
Our worlds out of order
All I see is missed opportunity

Talk but never show
Youre holding back
Words lack meaning thats all
Things you say ricochet
Miss by a mile
The words dont work for me
Ooh who understands.
Why the worlds nasty girl
When we re doin the best we can
Even tho were walking a wire
Where theres hope theres desire
Calling you back to your white knight
