Chairlift - Met Before Lyrics

Did I just catch your eyes like familiar fish in the water
It could be anywhere that we’ve passed each other by
Were you at that one party? That one up on the ninth floor
Were you the quiet one who stopped to hold the door?

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile

Was that you on the screen or just in line for the movie?
Because my heart is beating fast and I wish that I knew why

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile.

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and ba-da-da-ba-ba...

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile

Have we met before? Amongst the buzzing of billions?
Clear like yesterday when you look at me and smile
Oh you look at me and smile
Oh you look at me and smile

Chairlift Met Before Comments
  1. Michael Chukinas

  2. Matthew Smith

    I've bern looking for this song for five years! A random yt recommendation comes through where intermittently searching variations of "parallel universe song" failed. Pleased to find the song is just as good as i remembered!


    I love chairlift and caroline poachek and I'm honestly surprised people loved this song sm. Out of all there songs by her and the band this is one of my least favorites and I never really watched the video for this and I'd thought I'd try it and see the comments and I'm stunned to see someone comment at 2am on this random video from in my opinion one of the weaker songs from the their second album.

  3. CJC Carta

    Damn. I love loud music. Reminds me of some sixities music!!!

  4. lmm05005

    No one ever makes a music video about doctoral students. As a doc student, this is much appreciated, even if the video is ridiculously unrealistic. haha


    I wish I was a rock star instead of a doctoral student...haha

  5. Lilith O Power

    Me in class to everyone: 0:45

  6. bh617

    The synth parts remind me so much of Thomas Dolby

  7. pandalakanat

    Ahhh I remember the premiere of this video on their website - you could choose how the story went in different timelines. Is this still available somewhere?


    it's on jordan fish's website, the director of the music video


    @rm2.50 Ah! Thank you so much!


    Nice unibrow at 0:01


    The superorganism speaks within itself.
    What does the waggle dance communicate?

  10. Nature Boy

    I cant deal with how good this song is. I'm about to leave work for the day.

  16. Goyte Spirit

    A Chairlift production is usually indicudive to the right of passage between Princeton University and Harvard University of higher learning. I learned my physics in the mirror though; I was fully acredited in study class at Harvard. After experiencing the Harvard standards of snub your ass I was under less commonly acredited Princeton standards of giving. Hears to the proliferation of Chailift! 📻 Love Sam Lee

  17. Vecrek

    Какая она красивая!

  25. AOnTheWeb

    anyone know what school this was filmed at?


    Probably Columbia due to them being based out of NY and Columbia having science facilities (not that other schools around here don't, but you can see out the window in one shot in the video and it looks like it's in Manhattan).

  89. Dave Adams

    I would love to produce this band...the  offer is there....we could do it at Mitch Easter's Studio in North Carolina..www.fideletorium     I love you guys


    Pretty sure they don't need you to produce their album, Alan Moulder did their last album.

    Dave Adams

    @basehead617 Alan Moulder is a great engineer..but he's not right for this band..He is a professional London engineer with lots of credits..but this band is not NIN..he's more of a hardcore guy and he's brilliant at that..but this band needs a sensitive melodic touch..that was all I was put down intended..

    Oliver Matich

    +Dave Adams I'm actually with this guy. mixing of the whole album is just not right, still a great album but it needs more room to breathe.

  90. Charmander Gemuk Kmph

    Somehow when i discover a new artist and follow them, they will turn to become mainstream music

    oh, Strain.

    Do you really call this mainstream? its been 2 months and your comment is still readable hahaa.

    Charmander Gemuk Kmph

    I don't follow them lol!


    @TheReal Kmph so pls start following them lmao, they need money

  91. L'Quik Shrtz

    DUDE!!!!! i was about to say the same fucking thing!!!! NO WAY!!! she is my future ex wife!!!

  92. LucidDream

    One can't help but admire Caroline's beauty. I've been in love ever since I knew who she was. :) She's more that beautiful...she also seems to have her own charm.

  93. Earl Lemongrab

    They're both so wonderfully dorky. I don't want to marry anyone, I just want to hang out with them, eat pizza and watch Japanese commercials on YouTube.

  94. svetotehnik

    fantastic work! watched almost all versions of reality)

  95. fsrballer2
