It seems we stood and talked like this before
We looked at each other in the same way then
But I can't remember where or when

The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then
But I can't remember where or when

Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again
And so it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before
But who knows where or when

    General CommentThis is not just about Deja Vu.
    I think it's about reincarnation.

    Loving someone so much but having little reason.
    Feeling familiarity with someone you don't know very well but know you feel comfortable with.

    It remains a mystery where but the question "when" suggests that time certainly is a factor.
    And unless amnesia took's probably referring to another lifetime.

    General CommentI don't know... this is just a 30's showtune - I think it's just metaphorical. He feels so familiar with her it's *like* they've met before.
    Haven't heard the Harry Connick version but I doubt it can beat Dion and the Belmonts!

    General CommentThis song means that you are with the person that you have always dreamed about, and the occasion is as you had imagined. I totally get it as a person who has dreamt somedthing and at some point watched it unfold. Amazing when it happens!
