Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners, until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, we are gonna get out

Tonight maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Ohh ohh...
Dreaming of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day the sun will come out

    If I had to pick a favorite song from this album it would have to be this one. (The album is EXCELLENT! BEAUTIFUL!)
    When I hear this song it makes me feel like no matter what obstacles I may be going through, the sun will come up and that my dreams will come true.
    Love, Love this song.

    For those of you who don't know this song Lover's in Japan is an analogy for couples or lovers to stay strong and stay together despite the distractions and temptations of life and the occasional difficulties of monogamy. Hence the first line

    'Lovers stay on the road you on'
    'Soldiers you got to soldier on'

    Japan is a notoriously busy, cosmopolitan place with lots of people, bright lights and distractions. Like time square on acid.

    hence the reference.

    I love this song. I don't really know the meaning, but the overall mood of the song seems to be "hope". It seems to give the message of "hold on, don't give up, things will get better". I love the way this song is beautiful and peaceful, but has a good strong rhythm at the same time.

    I love the video...something like paper butterflies falling from the sky...
    They are turning my head out
    To see what I'm all about
    Keeping my head down
    To see what it feels like now
    But I have no doubt
    One day the sun will come out
    Gosh, the way he sings it in the chorus reminds me of Life In Technicolor II.
    Weird...
