"Lovers in Japan (Osaka Sun Mix)" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners, until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even the right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, we're gonna get out

Tonight maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Oh, oh,
Dreaming of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day the sun will come out


Reign of love
I can't let it go
To the sea I offer
This heavy load

Locusts will
Lift me up
I'm just a prisoner
In a reign of love

Locusts will
Let us stop
I wish I'd spoken
To the reign of love

Reign of love
By the church, we're waiting
Reign of love
My knees go praying

How I wish
I'd spoken up
Or we'd be carried
On the reign of love

    My OpinionThis song is my favorite off the Prospekt's March EP. It's actually quite different from the original "Lovers in Japan," though not a people notice the difference. Not only does the Osaka Sun Mix have more piano and drum backing as well as a vocal interlude between the two main verses, the song just sounds happier. If you listen to the original Lovers in Japan and listen to the Osaka Sun Mix immediately after, you can hear a difference. The Osaka Sun Mix is more energetic. The drum and bass line is more prominent, creating that "drive" that moves the song along. It has a very positive "we can do this!" feel to it. I imagine this song being about an army deserter who left the ranks because he was at war with himself. He didn't believe in the cause he was fighting for, so he left. He acknowledges that times are hard, but he knows that "one day, we're going to get out." One day, things will be good again. The Osaka Sun Mix reinforces this core belief with that happy, bouncy rhythm while the regular Lovers in Japan seems resigned in a way, like the downhearted people are preparing for a fight to make things good again.
