In a time, in a place
In a world, they forgot
Lives the heart of me
A part that just wont die
Just a boy, not a man
Sent to war, in a land
They said wed fight for their freedom
But I felt like a hired hand

Sometimes I have to find my way
Sometimes I have to get away

Chorus:
Take me back to tokyo road
Take me back to tokyo road

Working hard, for a pass
Got the night, make it last
It was a time to remember
All my life I would never forget
In a bar, breathing smoke
Snorting whiskey, drinking coke
It was a time when no one would die
And there wasnt a care

Sometimes I wish it was that way
Cause sometimes I have to get away

Chorus

This guy turns me around and hes pointing up the stairs
I found myself in her doorway but there wasnt anybody there
She walked in the room with nothing on but a red light
And with a smile she got so close to me.
She whispered something bout midnight
You know I didnt understand a word she said
But it felt so good
She knew that I didnt have any money
But baby I knew she would...

Chorus
