(I Miss The) Tokyo Skyline

Album: Rewind The Film (2013)
  • Lost on my own in the blazing sun
    Down through the streets of Tokyo
    Feeling like an alien is so much fun
    This place somehow feels like a second home

    I dream of the Tokyo skyline
    I miss the emptiness and the silence
    I long for the non-communication
    Everything is happily lost in translation

    I miss the Tokyo skyline
    I miss the smog and the sunshine
    Every night I sit and remember
    This love I feel for a modern wonder

    I dream of the Tokyo skyline
    I miss the emptiness and the silence
    I long for the non-communication
    Everything is happily lost in translation

    Lost on my own in the blazing sun
    Down through the streets of Tokyo
    Feeling like an alien is so much fun
    This place somehow feels like a second home

    I miss the Tokyo skyline
    I miss the smog and the sunshine
    Every night I sit and remember
    This love I feel for a modern wonder Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
