The first date's the worst date, its hard to know just what to do,
I take you to dinner, you don't eat you just play with your food
Then there's something familiar, about every word you say,
Its hard to believe, this happened again

I already met you, I already met you,
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the girlfriend I had before her

I take you to my apartment in Venice just south of Beirut,
You tell me you're bored and you don't like the color of my shoes,
And the picture gets clearer, with every word you say
Its hard to believe, this happened again

I already met you, I already met you,
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the the girlfriend I had before her
There's no need to upset you, but I already met you,
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the girlfriend I had before her

(distorted voice)
She takes your kids, and a house all alone, a ... you drew and a sweet
uncles....

My Dad says you're different, you're the one with whom I should grow
old,
Yeah that's not too convincing while yelling at your dad on my phone,
So I stare out the window, and I find me a smile,
'Cause I still believe, it gets better than this

I already met you, I already met you,
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the the girlfriend I had before her
There's no need to upset you, but I already met you,
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the girlfriend I had before her
You're like my last girlfriend, the ex,
And the girlfriend I had before her
And the girlfriend I had before her
And the girlfriend I had before her
And the girlfriend I had before that.

    General CommentThe distorted voice lines are actually '2 point 2 kids, and a house on the hill a dog named Boo and a sweet uncle Phil... fella?'

    General Commentheh. I feel so bad for this guy!

    this song is awesome. I can totally relate ... I seem only to attract the same type of boy (the kind with whom it doesn't work out) over and over again.

    ... maybe someday I will get it right. who knows?

    General CommentWhen asked about it, Superfine said that the song really was about when Rob Grad and Kevin Keller-Moore first met and they feel that they had met before. And they spent hours talking about reincarnation. and that it was misconstrued as a song about lovers... but it all depends on your perspective. go to superfineband.com for the full story.
