"Left My Heart In Tokyo" as written by Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune Cooper, Brian Thomas Higgins, Timothy Martin Powell, Carla Maria Williams, Anne Lilia Berge Strand and Frederick Falke....
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)

    General CommentThis song is about virginity I think.

    She's been lookin for the right guy to lose it too, but all of them have been wanting to use her, so she finally "skipped to the next best" and lost it anyway.

    "did'nt really know that I was gonna end up here, "

    she regrets it.

    that's my theory anyways. :)
