Discovering Japan - Graham Parker

    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

    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

    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
