Teena Marie - Déjà Vu (I've Been Here Before) Lyrics




I'm young and I'm old
I'm rich and I'm poor
I feel like I've been on this earth many times before
Once I was a white Gazelle
On horse back riding free
Searching in the darkness for a piece of me

I can feel this for sure
I've been here before
I can fell this for sure for sure
I've been here before

I used to be a queen you know
In a island by the sea
With rainbow colored people
Happy as can be
Never had a problem
There never was a care
And Love was ever flowing and it's feeling shared

And I can feel this for sure... ooh
I've been here before
I can feel this for sure
For sure for sure
For sure for sure
Oh I've been here before
Yes I have
I can feel it
I can feel it... ooh
In my heart I feel it

The soul feels like the Universe
It's vast and never ends
Stars to me are the Children
Babies are my friends
God is like a galaxy
Within my spirit flies
Felt this way a million times
Please don't ask me why

The question of my lifetime
If you ask my point of view
They say it all was Karma
Call it Deja vu
Call it Deja vu
Call it Deja vu
Call it Deja vu
Call it Deja vu
And I can feel this for sure
I've been here before
And I can feel... this for sure
I've been here before
I've been here before
I can feel it

I'm young and I'm old
I'm rich and I'm poor
I feel like I've been on this earth many times before
Once I was a white Gazelle
On horse back riding free
Searching in the darkness for a piece of me

I used to be a queen you know
In a island by the sea
With rainbow colored people
Happy as can be
There never was a problem
There never was a care
And Love was ever flowing and it's feeling shared

And I can feel this for sure
For sure for sure
For sure for sure
I've been here before
I swear It
I can feel this for sure
I've been here before

If hate is on your mind
And you can't give love the time
If anger if your friend
Don't know when you die you'll come back again
And In the master's plan...
You'll come back woman or man
If your life is full of sin...
Don't you know when you die you'll come back again!
I thank God... thank God... thank God...
I am not coming back no more!
I've been here before...
Thank God... thank God... thank God!
(I don't want to come back no more!)

  2. Anetha Moore

    You are so right, this lady's voice was untouchable. I believe she was robbed of her recognition because of her association....🤔

  8. Sheila Fort

    Tina Marie wrote the song. Rick James composed the music and Melody. The white music industry was not ready for Tina Marie with her black Soulful voice, that was the main reason why she was underrated and so have many others like her. Times are so different now... NOW they're embracing voices who sound so black and soulful.

    Love this song. My third oldest sister Sandra use to have me this play this song. In fact last time I drove my Mom to the hospital before she passed-away she didn't want to get out the car. She said,"This is such a beautiful song just let me sit and listen to it one more time." I did what Mom asked. This song has such a special place and meaning in my life. Not only did my Mom love this song but my four older sister's loved this. They have also passed-away. Whenever I play this song it brings' back memories and it also comfort me knowing that my loved one's are at peace.
    God bless
