"Tokyo Road" as written by and Bon Jovi/sambora....
In a time, in a place
In a world they forgot
Lives the heart of me
A part that just won't die
Just a boy, not a man
Sent to war, in a land
They said we'd fight for their freedom
But I felt like a hired hand

Sometimes I have to find my way
Sometimes I have to get away

Take me back to tokyo road
Take me back to tokyo road

Working hard, for a pass
Got the night, make it last
It was a time to remember
All my life I would never forget
In a bar, breathing smoke
Snorting whiskey, drinking coke
It was a time when no-one would die
And there wasn't a care

Sometimes I wish it was that way
'cause sometimes I have to get away


This guy turns around
And he's pointing up the stairs
I found myself in her doorway
But there wasn't anybody there
She walked in the room
With nothing on but a red light
And with a smile she got so close to me
And whispered something 'bout midnight
You know I didn't understand a word she said
But it felt so good
She knew that I didn't have any money
But baby I knew she would

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI think this must be about a time they went to a brothel in Japan. Just a guess. A very strange song.
