She takes off my shirt using her words
She makes my heart start to shake
I need to leave, she can't come with me
She makes my heart start to shake

And I couldn't wait for this ghost town to burn
I'll take her away, and never return
But I can't remain here in my Earthly form
I said you must stay, as I must move on

And we could fly away to a far-off place
Tokyo, Tokyo,
Tokyo, Tokyo
Fly off like a bird, never to return
Tokyo, Tokyo
Tokyo, Tokyo

She takes all my words, I cannot be heard
She makes my heart start to shake
Into the unknown, within my soul
She makes my heart start to shake

And I couldn't wait for this ghost town to burn
I'll take her away, and never return
But I can't remain here in my Earthly form
I said you must stay, as I must move on

And we could fly away to a far-off place
Tokyo, Tokyo,
Tokyo, Tokyo
Fly off like a bird, never to return
Tokyo, Tokyo
Tokyo, Tokyo

Like a fire, like a fire
We could burn this town [x3]
To the ground
Like a fire, like a fire
We could burn this town

And we could fly away to a far-off place
Tokyo, Tokyo,
Tokyo, Tokyo
Fly off like a bird, never to return
Tokyo, Tokyo
Tokyo, Tokyo

Take it off, take it off, oh
Take it off, take it off,
My dear, you have no fear
Take it off, take it off, oh
Take it off, take it off
My dear,
Tokyo, Tokyo
