An uncomfortable déjà vu

from Death By Sunset by Dave McPherson



This song was originally on 'The Grand Odyssey of the Whale & the Barnacle' EP. It is basically about moving on from someone & not wasting time & making the same mistakes. I really like the progressions & lyrics.


You couldn't wait for me, could you dear?
You couldn't wait for me to play catch-up.
You flew away and left me with clipped wings.

I've been licking these wounds for so long.
I've been building these new wings so strong.
I don't care how far you have flown, you left me all alone.

An uncomfortable déjà vu.
I told you about the golden frame.
Did it hit you hard?
Did I leave a scar?
I don't know who you are anymore.
But don't ever waste your time like I did.
Don't ever waste good love like she did.

You couldn't lie to me, could you dear?
Although you tried to, you couldn't my dear.
Your doubts will turn into regret and you'll never forget.

I'm not that man, I'm not that man anymore.
I'm not your man, I'm not your man anymore.
I'm not that man, I don't want to hear about that man anymore.
I'm not that weak, I'm not that weak any more.
And I've found a girl, I've found my someone else.

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
