"Over Tokyo" as written by and Ed Roland....
Got a photograph of a smile
Taken way back when we could smile
Now this plane will take me
Where I don't know
Maybe Tokyo

'Cause there's no memories over Tokyo
And there's no hurting over Tokyo

Got a photograph of some tears
Taken presently with more tears
Now I'll search for happiness
Where should I go
Maybe Tokyo

Attention will this pain go away
My condition oh it's just not the same

    General CommentToyko represents a place to escape the pain and burdens of life. Not refering to actually Toyko, but just using the name toyko to represent a place for a new start or occasional escape.

    General CommentI remember when we used to happy together, and something went wrong. Now I'm leaving, and going away where there are no bad memories, and no worries. This is where I can "search for happiness."

    General CommentThis is a beautiful, but painful song. Anywhere to go, to escape the sadness of lost love.

    General CommentPossible idea is the shadey history of Japan (hiroshima and Nagasaki-atomic bombs) If you go to Tokyo, it is all washed away. Talking about planes-possible Kamikaze reference.
