Owl City – Tokyo lyrics

Feels like I've been away for a thousand years
So tired of these airports and souvenirs
I shiver in the night and I think of you


I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all aligned
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most when I'm in Tokyo
I'll melt in the moonlight
and follow the shoreline
On down the coast, when I'm in Tokyo
Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oh,and I'm missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close, when I'm in Tokyo

I wander all alone in the pouring rain
Line-shocking on the wind, in the bullet train
I shiver in the night and I think of you

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all aligned
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most when I'm in Tokyo
I'll melt in the moonlight
and follow the shoreline
On down the coast, when I'm in Tokyo
Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oh, I'm missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close, when I'm in Tokyo
I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all aligned
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most
I'll melt in the moonlight
and follow the shoreline
On down the coast
Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oh, I'm missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out

And hold you close when I'm in Tokyo
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
