Her heart is nearly breaking, the earth is nearly quaking

The Tokyo's taxi's braking, it's screaming to a halt

And there's nothing to hold on to when gravity betrays you

And every kiss enslaves you-oo-oo

She knows how hard her heart grows under the nuclear shadows

She can't escape the feeling repeating in her head

When after all the urges some kind of truth emerges

We felt the deadly surges

Discovering Japan--an --an

Discovering Japan--an --an

The GIs only use her, they only ram right through her

Giving an eastern promise, that they could never keep

Seeing a million miles, between their joke and smiles

She heard their hard denials [don't pause]

As the tears dropped sideways down her face, face

I woke up talking in the tongue of a different race, race

And as the flight touches down my watch says 8:02

But that's midnight to you,

Midnight to you Midight to you
I dreamed headlong collisions in jet lag panavisions

I shouted sayonara it didn't mean goodbye

But lovers turn to posers show up in film exposures

Just like in travel brochures
