Tokyo Rose

Album: Idle Eyes (1985)
  • Where are you? What are you waiting for?
    This is not a race
    Are you trying to spend my time, spend time

    You in the corner, come closer
    I can see your face
    I can see it in mine
    Oh I see it in mine

    You tell a story like Tokyo Rose
    I got the picture from the stains on your clothes
    Didn't they tell you 'bout the shape I'm in?
    In this condition of carnal sin

    Confuse me, try to talk
    Like those stains on the sidewalk
    It's what she said, gets in my head

    The sun's up, you wake up
    That beauty at the bus stop
    Turns my head, go back to bed

    You tell a story like Tokyo Rose
    I got the picture from the stains on your clothes
    Didn't they tell you 'bout the shape I'm in?
    In this condition of carnal sin

    We'll be alright, we'll be alright
    We'll be alright, we'll be alright
    I tried to warn you
    I tried to warn you
    We'll be alright, alright

    You tell a story like Tokyo Rose
    I got the picture from the stains on your clothes
    Didn't they tell you 'bout the shape I'm in?
    In this condition of carnal sin

    You tell a story like Tokyo Rose
    I got the picture from the stains on your clothes
    Didn't they tell you 'bout the shape I'm in?
    In this condition of carnal sin

    You tell a story
    You tell a story
    You tell a story Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
