Moving on can be hard

Song 5: Deja Vu
 

You made it to day 5 of our journey and we're being faced with the biggest challenge yet:

Moving on from someone you loved.

 

The past 4 songs have come from Dan's perspective, but did you know that we have two songwriters and singers? Yep. I'm Steve! I kept running into this problem anytime I would go out to drink or have a good time, I would quickly start to think about my ex girlfriend, who I was still struggling to get over at the time. I would just immediately start to get pulled down into memories of things we used to do, and I really just wanted it to stop honestly.

"I'm tired of going backwards, I see you everywhere I go"

- Deja Vu

Meaning Behind the Song

"Deja Vu" is about having the strong desire to move on from someone you once loved, but struggling to do so to the point where you are. constantly reminded of them everywhere you go. Even though this happens, you don't reach back out to that person, and you maintain that you are tired of looking to the past. It's time to move on 💙

-Steve

Lyrics:

Stranded in downtown
While I fake a smile with friends
God am I wasted?
Cuz I'm seeing you again

All the little moments that we shared here
Every time I hold them you reappear
Here you are again

I got your hands up on my body
Pulling me back down into wanting
All the things that we once knew
Making love to Deja Vu
It's wrong to keep repeating
Harmonies with the words you're singing
I don't want to hold on to
Making love to deja vu

Swear that I saw you
Driving past my house
Just like you used to
Got me thinking 'bout
When we used to speed down 315
Windows down, pink skies, hand on my knee
Close my eyes
I can see

I got your hands up on my body
Pulling me back down into wanting
All the things that we once knew
Making love to Deja Vu
It's wrong to keep repeating
Harmonies with the words you're singing
I don't want to hold on to
Making love to Deja Vu

I'm tired of going backwards
I see you everywhere I go
And I know
I'm tired of going backwards
I see you everywhere I go
And I know

I got your hands up on my body
Pulling me back down into wanting
All the things that we once knew
Making love to Deja Vu
It's wrong to keep repeating
Harmonies with the words you're singing
I don't want to hold on to
Making love to Deja Vu

I don't wana
I don't wana
Making love to Deja Vu

I don't wana
I don't wana
Making love to Deva Vu
