  • Step up here, tell me
    Am I dumb enough to believe?
    When somebody says jump on this
    Would you follow them on your knees?
    Am I wrong or right
    To be dancing with you tonight?
    Said I'm done with his fantasies
    What I got is my sanity

    My baby knows what I want
    He's getting me and my thing
    He better take what I got
    Or he won't see me again
    'Cause there's been too many guys
    Just making moves on the floor
    My baby's reading my mind
    He knows that I'm needing more

    And I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody know know knows that
    I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody no can bring it home
    (Nobody no can bring it home)
    (Nobody no can bring it home)

    Seventeen and dumb
    Look at me I know right from wrong
    You and me we got something on
    And I don't need to hear that come come
    And I don't need to hear that come come

    Make you mine with the diamonds in the right sack
    Give it time and I'm gonna get you right back
    Saw the signs and I never ever fight back
    I keep it tight 'cause I know you really like that
    Do it right and you know I'm gonna hype that
    Write the rhymes and I'll sing it to you right back

    And I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody know know knows that
    I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody no can bring it home
    Nobody no can bring it home
    (Nobody no can bring it home)
    (Nobody no can bring it home)

    Sick sick sick sick sick
    So tired of the best dress
    Didn't really want to keep it for the rest
    Oh oh oh
    So I skipped to the next best
    Didn't really know that
    I was gonna end up here

    And I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody know know knows that
    I left my heart in Tokyo
    Down by the river don't you know
    I had to let it go
    Nobody no can bring it home
    Nobody no can bring it home
    (Nobody no can bring it home)
    (Nobody no can bring it home) Writer/s: ANNE LILIA BERGE STRAND, ANNIE STRAND, BRIAN THOMAS HIGGINS, CARLA MARIA WILLIAMS, FREDERICK FALKE, MIRANDA ELEANOR DE FONBRUNE COOPER, TIMOTHY MARTIN POWELL
