"Tokyo Witch" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
In a dark winter Tokyo
In the Majong parlor he waits
Seven pasts thrumming through his heads
Though he comes to the water ways

In the hallways they lie in bed
Dream the red loss of all their days
In your arms there is nothing left
But we are all on the way

My whole life
Is the mystery
That I can't bear

Oh wings
That are camery
Upon this day

I would love to heal you now

In a dark winter Tokyo
In the Mahjong parlors they wait
Severed pasts sweeping through their hands
No one comes to the water way

In the hour of the all
There is notes along the way


All I wanted to see
Is that I am better
All I want to believe
Is that I am better
Round and round
All I wanted to see
Is that I am better
round and round

    General Commentit kind of sounds like "cavalry" instead of "camery"

    General CommentAlthough I'm stumped on quite a few lines, I'm fairly sure it's 'In the Mahjong parlor he waits/Severed pasts thrumming through his hands/...comes to...on their way

    My whole life
    Is a mystery
    That I can't bear

    Day sounds like 'stays', although most of that verse is garbled.

    In the hour of the young/There dawns...

    All I want you to see/is that I am there/All I want to believe/is that I am there

    I'm playing this by ear just as much as anyone else, though, so please feel free to disagree with me. Anyone else want to take a crack at it?

    General CommentNOTES: see youtube.com/… for a live version to compare against.
    i was using high quality headphones, so i'm confident with most of the lyrics.
    ================================================

    in a dark winter tokyo
    in the Mahjong parlour he waits
    severed past throbbing through his hands
    nobody comes to the one who waits
    in the hallways they're lying there in the red blossom of the gaze
    in your arms there is nothing left
    we are all on the wait

    my whole life is a mystery that i can't break
    our lings and Calvary of our mistakes
    ------------
    NOTES: the 'L' is before the 'V' when she sings. see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…. i have no idea what the first words of that line are though. it's not "oh". more like our/are and there is an 'L' sound that follows. it's possibly another place name that i am unfamiliar with.]
    ------------

    i would love to heal you now

    in a dark winter tokyo
    in the Mahjong parlours they wait
    severed past sweeping through their hands
    nobody comes to the ones that wait

    in the heart of the young they gloss over the pain

    all i wanted to see is that i am better
    all i want to believe is that i am better
    round and round
    all i want you to see is that i am better
    round and round

    General Commenti am pretty sure your lyrics are wrong.
    by a lot.

    i get "mahjong waters"
    i get "mystery that i can't bear"

    the rest i can't make out.
    but i don't hear what you put.

    General CommentA beautiful and haunting song I have played a thousand times. I think the posted lyrics are good but I do interpret and guess a few words differently as follows:

    In a dark winter Tokyo
    In the Mahjong water he wades
    Severed pasts drumming through his hands
    Though he comes to the water ways

    In the hallways they're lying there
    In the red blossom of the day
    In your arms there is nothing left
    Though he comes to the water ways

    My whole life
    Is the mystery
    That I can't take

    Oh wings
    That are Calvary
    Upon this day

    I would love to heal you now

    In a dark winter Tokyo
    In the Mahjong waters they wade
    Severed pasts sweeping through their hands
    Though he comes to them on the way

    In the arm of the young
    Red blossom of the day

    All I wanted to see
    Is that I am better
    All I want to believe
    Is that I am better
    From here on
    All I wanted to see
    Is that I am better
    From here on

    General CommentI swear that the last line of the first verse is "glory comes to the one who waits"

    General CommentI hear "that I am better" more as "they're dying better"...

    General CommentI am like 99% sure on the lyrics here:


    In a dark wintry Tokyo
    In the mahjong parlour he waits
    Severed paths running through his hands
    Glory comes to the one who waits

    In the hallways they lie in bed
    In the red blossom of the gaze
    In your arms there is nothing left
    Though you always run away

    My whole life is a mystery that I can't break
    Our race is the calvary of our mistakes
    I would love to heal you now

    In a dark wintry Tokyo
    In the mahjong parlours they wait
    Severed paths sweeping through their hands
    Glory comes to the ones that wait

    In the heart of the young
    They've lost enough of days

    All I wanted to see was that I am better
    All I want to believe is that I am better,
    Round and round
    All I wanted to see was that I am better
    Round and round

    General Commentpretty sure it's "paths" not "pasts" - relating to the game of mahjong (real mahjong that is not the pair matching bastardisation of it)

    when you play mahjong you can see within your hand of tiles different paths you available to you depending how the game progresses (luck of the draw) to achieve the highest scoring hand by the time someone is all out of tiles.
