what am i missing? lyrics – rufus & chaka khan

there is an ill wind blowin’
with no let up in sight
evil ill wind blowin’
and i been up all night

simple solemn slumber
seems to slip away
lord help me go under
i’ve been up all day

something’s going on tonight
what am i missing?
something’s going on tonight
what am i missing? ooh

what am i missing? tonight
what am i missing? tonight

i’ve been a victim of these white lies
since i was seventeen
you could say i’ve been everywhere
but you can’t say what i’ve seen

and lookin’ back on my life
deep though it has been
i’ll end up like a jack knife
standing in the wind

something’s going on tonight
what am i missing?
something’s going on tonight
what am i missing? ooh

and lookin’ back on my life
deep though it has been
i’ll end up like a jack knife
standing in the wind

something’s going on tonight
something’s going on tonight

there’s a lil’ wind goin’
(something’s going on tonight)
can’t you feel it blowin’?
there’s a lil’ wind goin’
(something’s going on tonight)
can’t you feel it blowin’?

there’s a lil’ wind goin’?
(something’s going on tonight)
can’t you feel it blowin’?
there’s a lil’ wind goin’
can’t you feel it blowin’?
