LyricsEdit

Delilah:
Well, hello, baby, are you watching TV, are you out there somewhere watching me?
I bet you’re surprised to see such a familiar face.
Three years and counting since you walked away, three years and counting since that fateful day,
And my heart took yet another coup de grace.

Delilah, Ellie and Shan:
I’d been sittin’ in a box for three long years.
Listening to the sound of my own tears,
Watching your shadow as it ran away, but you stayed in my mind.
I bet you wish you didn’t see me up on this stage,
Knowing that this song is screaming your name,
Well it’s deja vu, cause it’s time for you to get outta my life.

Ellie:
I’m touring across the entire world; trust me babe, I’m a different girl,
Not that goody-two shoes you used to know.
I dyed my hair and got a guitar, and now the road ahead of me’s going very far,
And you’re standing there, having reached another all time low.

Delilah, Ellie and Shan:
I’d been sittin’ in a box for three long years.
Listening to the sound of my own tears,
Watching your shadow as it ran away, but you stayed in my mind.
I bet you wish you didn’t see me up on this stage,
Knowing that this song is screaming your name,
Well it’s deja vu, cause it’s time for you to get outta my life.

Nadia and Tiffany:
So now, I don’t cry,
For the guy,
Say goodbye
And run away.
Don’t you cry,
For the guy.
Say goodbye.
I’ll be okay, cause,

All Girls:
I’d been sittin’ in a box for three long years.
Listening to the sound of my own tears,
Watching your shadow as it ran away, but you stayed in my mind.
I bet you wish you didn’t see me up on this stage,
Knowing that this song is screaming your name,
Well it’s deja vu, cause it’s time for you to get outta my life.
