Week 49 – Deja Vu Day by The Glad Stones ft. BBS

I’m sure we all have experienced a deja vu moment at some point in our lives. It’s that weird and sometimes eerie feeling when you encounter a particular situation and suddenly say to yourself: “Hey, I think I’ve been here before”, though you can’t really be sure if you have, or if you are imagining things. It’s an unmistakable feeling and once it hits you, you immediately say “deja vu”…

The idea for this song came to us as a pseudo-deja vu moment. We were sitting somewhere trying to think of what to write when a woman dressed in a bright pink blouse and long black skirt walked by. Then, a few moments later, the same woman walked past us again in the exact same manner, and I couldn’t help but say “deja vu” – even though I knew it wasn’t really one. That incident sparked off the whole idea behind this song…

Déjà vu Day

I’m having the weirdest day of my life…

Doo wop doo wop déjà vu day (X4)

There was nothing that special about my double shot latte
Was an OK day till you knocked over my glass
The next thing I knew I was looking right at you
And you said I’m so sorry and my mind went flash

Oh no, I think I’ve been here before
Same green dress that no one can ignore
Oh no, I think I’ve been here before
Why have you come knocking on my door

CHORUS
Mr deja vu
You hit me like a shoe
And now I can’t remember who that was
I have seen her face but my mind is in a daze
I’m just stuck in this familiar place

Through the crowd I see you waiting there for me
A long forgotten dream from the depths of the sea
Like a summer breeze impossible to seize
I’ll never figure out who you are to me

Oh no, I think I’ve been here before
Same awkward situation could there be more
Oh no I think I’ve been here before
So I’m gonna follow you out that door
