Ghost City Tokyo

Tokyo town, what a beautiful and vibrant city
Shining down and casting shadows are the lights around me
From around the corner it's escaping
Mixing with the neon-coloured signage ever changing
Come and take my time away,
I'll trade my world away for one night
Sinking into the lights
 
''All aboard'' - on the final train that's leaving shortly
From the window, my reflection isn't who I thought she would be
Honestly she looks a bit exhausted
Someone that could start crying any time she wanted
Someone all alone in the dark, someone who doesn't know where they are
 
A depressing picture
 
But it's fine, someday it'll be alright
I've said it to myself a thousand times
I've said it yet again tonight
Still today, I slowly fade away
No matter where I go in Tokyo I feel almost like a ghost
 
So used to only losing sight of the things I wanted
I find again I'm reaching for something I'd forgotten
The memories come flooding back to me
And I can't help but burst into tears
This city really is sick
Almost as if I could be blinded by it
 
Yeah it's tough, letting out a sigh while also laughing
God I've had enough, I only spend all of my days indulging
Suddenly I'm hit by a flashback
By the time I realise I've been making a new track
Putting lyrics to a beat, until my morning alarm starts to beep
 
So used to only losing sight of the things I wanted
I find again I'm reaching for something I'd forgotten
Before that though, and further back now, still
Yeah the reason it's still on my mind
Is cause you're here by my side
 
Hey
In a city as alone as today
Hey
 
Tokyo town, what a beautiful and vibrant city
Shining down and casting shadows are the lights around me
Dreaming of that day again, I reach out
Just another second, minute, hour, day or week now
Come and take my time away,
I'll trade my world away for a date
Walking towards a new day
 
So used to only losing sight of the things I wanted
But taking all these dreams that I almost had forgotten
The moment that I held them close to me
Couldn't help but to burst into tears
This city really is sick
I hope that I can keep on living in it
 
Oh it's the same way for you too, isn't it?
 
Bedankt!
