Lyrics

Dilima, isoun megalo dilima
Ma elava to minima pio dromo na dialekso
Eklapsa, stin epanalipsi epeksa
Tis andohes mu ekapsa ke alo dhen tha pekso

Kokina fegharia ghinan ta simadia pu afises pano sto soma mu
Kokina fegharia ekapsan ta vradia san na min se ezisa alu, san Déjà vu!

san Déjà vu, san Déjà vu
san na min se ezisa alu
san Déjà vu

pio poli, o erotas su pio poli
agizi tin ipervoli pes mu ti thes en teli? (pes mu ti thelis telika?)
tora pia, dhen ehi alo tora pia
ise to htes ke egho fotia sto avrio pu anateli

Kokina fegharia ghinan ta simadia pu afises pano sto soma mu
Kokina fegharia ekapsan ta vradia san na min se ezisa alu, san Déjà vu!

Dhen boro na adistatho,

Ime i Marseaux HEY! Pu ine i chicas mu?
Pios ehi klepsi tin kardia su roto
Me trighirnas san ton kapno apto tsigaro pu krato
Pu shimatizi sinefa stu mialu mu ton urano

Kokina fegharia ghinan ta simadia pu afises pano sto soma mu
Kokina fegharia ekapsan ta vradia san na min se ezisa alu, san Déjà vu!

san Déjà vu, san Déjà vu
san na min se ezisa alu
san Déjà vu

Lyrics (English translation)

Dilemma, you were a big dilemma
But I received the message in which way to choose

I cried, I played in the replay
I burned my stamina and I will not play anymore

The signs you left on my body turned into red moons
The red moons burned in the evenings as if I did not live you elsewhere

Like a Deja Vu, like a Deja Vu
Like a Deja Vu – like I didn’t live anywhere else
Like a Deja Vu

Much more, your love touches the exaggeration much more
Tell me what you want in the end (tell me what you want in the end)
Now, there is no more of you left
You are the “yesterday” and I am the fire of the tomorrow which is rising.

The signs you left on my body turned into red moons
The red moons burned in the evenings as if I did not live you elsewhere

Like a Deja Vu, like a Deja Vu
Like a Deja Vu – like I didn’t live anywhere else
Like a Deja Vu

You will hurt me
I have seen the play before
Gigolo, you are tossing earth and sky
I cannot resist
The heart wants it bad
And let my mind know
How should I refuse?
I’m Marseaux, hey! Where are my chicas?
Who has stolen your heart; I keep asking
You surround me like the smoke from the cigarette I’m holding
(the smoke) that forms clouds in my mind’s sky

The signs you left on my body turned into red moons
The red moons burned in the evenings as if I did not live you elsewhere

Like a Deja Vu, like a Deja Vu
Like a Deja Vu – like I didn’t live anywhere else
Like a Deja Vu
