Lyrics

Dead Ringer ©2016 Karen Potje

You saw me coming. You did a double take
It took a second look to show you your mistake
It's quite unusual to feel such déjà vu
The explanation's plain to me
I'm just a dead ringer for somebody I used to be

You seem astonished. I've got her lips, her eyes
If it's confusing you then I apologize
Although we seem to share the face, the look, the hair
The explanation's plain to me
I'm just a dead ringer for somebody I used to be

Maybe I resemble the girl you promised all your love
But honey I'm not the woman I remind you of
You may have made her tremble and cry and clamor for your kiss
But this woman here is not enamored and she can resist

Don't be embarrassed. No need to be ashamed
Although it's strange we've even got the same first name
If you can't look away, you don't know what to say
The explanation's plain to me
I'm just a dead ringer for somebody I used to be

Maybe I resemble the girl who sighed and said, “I do”
Honey, I can promise you I don't
You may have made her tremble and lose sleep over you
But darling, let me make it clear that I won't

You had it coming. You did a double take
It took a second look to show you your mistake
Now it's too late to get undone by your regret
The explanation's plain to me
I'm just a dead ringer for somebody I used to be
I'm just a drop dead ringer for somebody I used to be
I'm just a dead ringer for somebody I used to be
