lyrics

M.O. (Missed Opportunity)
(written by Alfa Garcia/BMI & Andrew Furze/APRA)

You make me do the things that I don't wanna do
Like going out dancing and listening to
your crappy songs about somebody new.

I'm just a game you play while you're shuffling cards
dealing to whoever surrenders their heart
can't you see the forest for the trees?

Don't wanna be the girl on the side
misreading the signs
holding out hope that you'll finally find
the one that you need, babe it should be me
but I can't wait for eternity
so call me a missed opportunity.

You put me to the test, a broken ego at best
I'd rather hang on to whatever is left of my pride
so this means goodbye.
I struggle to refuse when you throw me a line
I'm always hangin' on by a string every time
Not today (no way!)
I'm walkin' away.

Don't wanna be the girl on the side
misreading the signs
holding out hope that you'll finally find
the one that you need and it should be me
but I won't wait 'til you fall for me
so call me a missed opportunity.

It'll break my heart for sure
cuz I swore I was yours
when I read it in the tea leaves last night.

Don't wanna be the girl on the side
misreading the signs
holding out hope that you'll finally find
the one that you need, babe it should be me
but I can't wait no, I can't wait

I'm the girl on the side
second-guessing the signs
holding out hope that you'll finally find
the one that you need and it should be me
but I can't wait for eternity
so call me a missed opportunity. for eternity
always be a missed opportunity
don't call me...
