Where or When

Music By Richard Rodgers  Lyrics By Lorenz Hart

When Valentine and Billie first meet, they experience an odd sensation of déjà vu. Introduced by Ray Heatherton and Mitzi Green in 1937, the song has become an American standard, recorded by a wide range of artists, including Count Basie, The Beach Boys, Dave Brubeck, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Barry Manilow, Johnny Mathis, Kenny Rogers, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, The Supremes and Frederica van Stade, among countless others.

“Where or When” LYRICS

It seems we stood and talked like this before.
We looked at each other in the same way then,
But I can’t remember where or when.

The clothes you’re wearing are the clothes you wore.
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then,
But I can’t remember where or when.

Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again.

And so, it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before,
But who knows where or when?

When you’re awake, the things you think
Come from the dreams you dream.
Thought has wings
And lots of things
Are seldom what they seem.

Sometimes you think you’ve lived before
All that you live today.
Things you do
Come back to you
As though they knew the way.
Oh, the tricks your mind can play!

It seems we stood and talked like this before.
We looked at each other in the same way then,
But I can’t remember where or when.

The clothes you’re wearing are the clothes you wore.
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then,
But I can’t remember where or when.

Some things that happen for the first time
Seem to be happening again.

And so, it seems that we have met before
And laughed before and loved before,
But who knows where or when?
