  • Songplace
  • Fly into the rising sun,
    Faces, smiling everyone
    Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
    I feel it in my heart

    My woman from Tokyo
    She makes me see
    My woman from Tokyo
    She's so good to me

    Talk about her like a queen
    Dancing in a eastern dream
    Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
    That carries me away

    My woman from Tokyo
    She makes me see
    My woman from Tokyo
    She's so good to me

    But I'm at home and I just don't belong ...
    So far away from the garden we love
    She is what moves in the soul of a dove
    Soon I shall see just how black was my night
    When we're alone in her city of light

    Rising from the neon gloom
    Shining like a crazy moon
    Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
    I get high

    My woman from Tokyo
    She makes me see
    My woman from Tokyo
    She's so good to meWriter/s: RITCHIE BLACKMORE, IAN GILLAN, ROGER D GLOVER, JON LORD, IAN PAICE

  • Daniel Miller from Houston, TxI've always thought this song was about heroin. The lyrics strongly suggest it, as does the music, especially the middle section.
