Daryl Hall & John Oates – Missed Opportunity lyrics
Keep on missin' each other
Our world's out of order
All I see is missed opportunity and we
(Keep on missin' each other)
Keep missin' each other
(Our world's out of order)
All I see is missed opportunity

Will we ever learn?
In trouble where will we turn?
And when you're losing the fight
Who's your white knight gonna be?

Feel you drift away
Oh baby, you don't hear what I'm sayin'
We had a chance to stay together
Ooh forever, but we got lost in a dream

(Keep on missin' each other)
Missin' each other
(Our world's out of order)
So all I see is
(Missed opportunity)
Opportunity and we

(Keep on missin' each other)
Missing each other
(Our world's out of order)
All I see
(Missed opportunity)
Missed opportunity

Talk but never show
You're holding back, words lack meaning, that's all
The things you say ricochet, miss by a mile
The words don't work for me

Who understands why the world's nasty girl?
When we're doin' the best we can
Even though we're walking a wire, where there's hope there's desire
Calling you back to your white knight

(Keep on missin' each other)
Missin' each other
(Our world's out of order)
All I see is
(Missed opportunity)
Missed opportunity and we

(Keep on missin' each other)
Keep missin' each other
(Our world's out of order)
All I see is
(Missed opportunity)
Missed opportunity
(Yeah, right)

And baby now who understands?
(Not you, not me)
Oh yeah

I
(Keep on missin' each other)
Our
(Our world's out of order)
All I see is
(Missed opportunity)
Oh, we keep holdin' on
(Keep on missin' each other)
Can't together baby

(Our world's out of order)
It seems to me we're wastin' all our time
(Missed opportunity)
That's right, oh holdin' on
(And we keep on missin' each other)
I try to keep holding on
(Our world's out of order)

No use baby, keep missin'
(Missed opportunity)
I tried
(And we keep on missin' each other)
Tried so hard
(Our world's out of order)
I could've been, should've been
(Missed opportunity)

(And we keep on missin' each other)
Oh, we almost made it baby
(Our world's out of order)
Tried so hard and we got so close
(Missed opportunity)
Oh, we keep holding on
(And we keep on)
