Strange Deja Vu Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Subconscious strange sensation
Unconscious relaxation
What a pleasant nightmare
And I can't wait to get there again

Every time I close my eyes
There's another vivid surprise
Another whole life waiting
Chapters unfinished, fading

Closer now, slowly coming into view
I've arrived, blinding sunshine beaming through

There's a house I'm drawn to
Familiar settings, nothing new
And there's a pathway leading there
With a haunting chill in the air

There's a room at the top of the stairs
Every night I'm drawn up there
There's a girl in the mirror
Her face is getting clearer
Young child, won't you tell me why I'm here?

In her eyes, I sense a story never told
Behind the disguise
There's something tearing at her soul

Tonight I've been searching for it
A feeling that's deep inside me
Tonight I've been searching for
The one that nobody knows
Trying to break free

I just can't help myself
I'm feeling like I'm going out of my head
Tear my heart into two
I'm not the one the sleeper thought he knew

Back on my feet again
Eyes open to the real world
Metropolis surrounds me
The mirror's shattered the girl

Why is this outside life
Haunting me every day?
I'd break through to the other side
If only I'd find the way

Something's awfully familiar
The feeling's so hard to shake
Could I have lived in that other world?
It's a link that I'm destined to make

Still searching but I don't know what for?
The missing key to unlock my mind's door

Today I am searching for it
A feeling that won't go away
Today I am searching for
The one that I only know
Trying to break free

I just can't help myself
I'm feeling like I'm going out of my head
Tear my soul into two
I'm not the one I thought I always knew

I just can't help myself
I'm feeling like I'm going out of my head
Uncanny, strange deja vu
But I don't mind, I hope to find the truth
