"Déjà Vu" as written by and Isaac/anderson Hayes....
Light globes wash up all along the beach
And they light me up with, and they light me up with certainty
But you calculate coincidence, and circumstance and turbulence
Gotta see what it is, and it's everything, and it's endless

Cause baby can't see through all this matter and make up and Deja Vú
Yeah we drift here alone, with nothing to do
Until one of us makes the other one come true

She wants to meet her fate, but travel by free will
But you can't have both and you can't stand still, still, still
I'll be the luckiest man in the universe if cause and effect doesn't get there first
But she keeps looking for patterns and the world just happens

Cause baby can't see through all this matter and make up and Deja Vú
Yeah we drift here alone with nothing to do
Until one of us makes the other one come true
Yeah one of us makes the other one come true

Yeah 'cause baby can't see through,
Through all this matter and make up and Deja Vú
Yeah we drift here alone, we drift here alone
Yeah we drift here alone, we drift here alone
Yeah we drift here alone with nothing to do
Until one of us makes the other one come true
Yeah one of us makes the other one come true
She said these questions don't answer like other questions do
So just let me be here with you

    General CommentThis song seems to be about a girl, & she keeps trying to figure everything out. She needs to find reasons for every little thing, coincedence & 'deja vu'. She can't accept that things don't work in patterns, & that "the world just happens".

    General CommentI think this song is about whether people believe in fate or if they make their own future. It says you can't have free will while meeting your fate. So you either do nothing and wait for fate to come along decide for yourself.

    General CommentI am a mad SFK fan, and I have to say this song is not one of their strong points...
    Maybe its just because all the dipshits I know that wouldn't appreaicate them like it. After this single was released heaps of mainstrmers bought their album...

    General Commentthe general meaning of this song is pretty clear but i always wonder what is meant by the first two lines.
    'light globes wash up all along the beach, and they light me up with, and they light me up with certainty'.
    i think it's just a really abstract way to explain a lonely walk on the beach where you're thinking about stuff. you know in cartoons and stuff a light globe symolises an idea coming to someone?
    'light globes wash up all along the beach' must just mean he's thinking while walking and ideas and theories are coming to him, and 'they light me up with certainty' must just mean he's more enlightened now because he's spending time thinking things through.
    anyway that's just my little ramble, does anyone agree?
