Lyrics

Pre>[intro] bm d a (3 times)

D bm
Her heart is nearly breaking, the earth is nearly quaking
D a
The tokyo's taxi's braking, it's screaming to a halt
G a bm g
And there's nothing to hold on to when gravity betrays you
A d bm
And every kiss enslaves you-oo-oo

D bm
She knows how hard her heart grows under the nuclear shadows
D a
She can't escape the feeling repeating in her head
G a bm g
When after all the urges some kind of truth emerges
A
We felt the deadly surges

Bm a g d a
Discovering japan--an --an
Bm a g d a g d bm bm
Discovering japan--an --an

D bm
The gis only use her, they only ram right through her
D a
Giving an eastern promise, that they could never keep
G a bm g
Seeing a million miles, between their joke and smiles
A d
She heard their hard denials [don't pause]

Bm a
As the tears dropped sideways down her face, face
Bm a
I woke up talking in the tongue of a different race, race
Bm g
And as the flight touches down my watch says 8: 02
F#m bm d a
But that's midnight to you,
Bm d a bm d a / g a
Midnight to you midight to you

D bm
I dreamed headlong collisions in jet lag panavisions
D a
I shouted sayonara it didn't mean goodbye
G a bm g
But lovers turn to posers show up in film exposures
A
Just like in travel brochures
Bm a g d a bm a g d a
Discovering japan discovering japan
