Deja Vu

Album: Sour (2021)
Charted: 12 8
  • Car rides to Malibu
    Strawberry ice cream
    One spoon for two
    And trading jackets
    Laughing 'bout how small it looks on you
    (ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha)
    Watching reruns of Glee
    Being annoying
    Singing in harmony
    I bet she's bragging
    To all her friends, saying you're so unique, hmm

    So when you gonna tell her
    That we did that too?
    She thinks it's special
    But it's all reused
    That was our place, I found it first
    I made the jokes you tell to her when she's with you

    Do you get déjà vu when she's with you?
    Do you get déjà vu? (Ah), hmm
    Do you get déjà vu, huh?

    Do you call her
    Almost say my name?
    'Cause let's be honest
    We kinda do sound the same
    Another actress
    I hate to think that I was just your type

    And I'll bet that she knows Billy Joel
    'Cause you played her Uptown Girl
    You're singing it together
    Now I bet you even tell her
    How you love her
    In between the chorus and the verse (ooh)

    So when you gonna tell her
    That we did that too?
    She thinks it's special
    But it's all reused
    That was the show we talked about
    Played you the song she's singing now when she's with you

    Do you get déjà vu when she's with you?
    Do you get déjà vu? Oh
    Do you get déjà vu?

    Strawberry ice cream in Malibu
    Don't act like we didn't do that shit too
    You're trading jackets like we used to do
    (Yeah, everything is all reused)
    Play her piano, but she doesn't know (oh, oh)
    That I was the one who taught you Billy Joel (oh)
    A different girl now, but there's nothing new
    (I know you get déjà vu)

    I know you get déjà vu
    I know you get déjà vu Writer/s: Olivia Rodrigo, Daniel Nigro
