  • Once I had a sweetheart;
    She kind of looked like Joan Fontaine.
    She made mediocre art,
    But had a fascinating brain.
    She asked me how I felt about monogamy.
    I didn't understand what she was telling me, no.

    Well, you can come up short and never know:
    Another debt I'm gonna owe.
    Well, I missed it. I missed it. I missed it.
    I got so close I could have kissed it;
    But then I missed it. I missed it, resisted;
    Now those days are gone.

    Once I held my own set of keys
    To the senior executive suite, with
    My very own secretary taking my calls
    And telling me who I was scheduled to meet with.
    They asked me what I thought about advancement.
    I wasn't sure what "We have other plans" meant.

    Well, you can lose your place and never know:
    Another chance I'm gonna blow.
    So, I missed it. I missed it. I missed it.
    I got so close I could have kissed it;
    But then I missed it. I missed it, resisted;
    Now those days are gone.
    (All right!)

    You can halve the distance all you like
    But still not ever touch it.
    You can split the difference all your life;
    It hurts, it hurts so much, it-!

    Once I entertained the notion
    I could skate along on charm:
    Count on my wit and my looks alone
    To keep me safe from harm.
    You asked me how it felt to be a dilettante (what?).
    I knew that you knew the answer
    But you didn't want to hear it. No,
    You didn't want to hear it.

    Well, you can blow your shot and never know:
    Another game I'm gonna throw.
    So, I missed it. I missed it. I missed it.
    I got so close I could have kissed it,
    But then I missed it. I missed it.
    I pissed it all away.

    I missed it. I missed it. I missed it.
    You all said no, but I insisted;
    That's how I missed it. I missed it. I missed it;
    Now those days are gone.
