Tokyo - Owl City ft. Sekai No Owari



www.last.fm
The Experience: Owl City pumps out a new, pumping song about the loneliness of missing you when he's so far away from you in Tokyo.
Official Video: Waiting. 


The Meaning of Owl City's Tokyo is long-distance love. All the way from the bright lights of Tokyo, Owl City's heart is leaning back and wishing he was with his girl.  
That's simple and direct. What's behind it is deeper: Adam doesn't say, "Hey, I'm famous, travelling in Tokyo, with enough money to be enjoying myself or doing whatever I want." Instead, Adam says, "So tired of these airports and souvenirs... I'm missing you." He puts love as more important than any of the worlds greatest self-centred pleasures. You keep me on my toes... You never leave my mind. This single is a reminder that nothing is greater than love.

Ask Yourself: If you were famous, rich, and travelling anywhere you wanted, who would your first thoughts be about: yourself, or those you love?


LYRICS:
Feels like I've been away for a thousand years
So tired of these airports and souvenirs
I shiver in the night and I think of you

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all align 
(When I'm in Tokyo)

You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most 
When I'm in Tokyo
I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast, 
When I'm in Tokyo

Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
Oh, I'm missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close, 
When I'm in Tokyo

I wander all alone in the pouring rain
Line-shocking on the wind, in the bullet train
I shiver in the night and I think of you

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all align
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most 
I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast, 
When I'm in Tokyo

Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
When I am missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close, 
when I'm in Tokyo

I stroll the boulevards
I stare up at the stars
And wish they all aligned
You keep me on my toes
And this is how it goes
You never leave my mind

Are you having fun yet?
I'll send you the sunset
I love the most
I'll melt in the moonlight
And follow the shoreline
On down the coast

Oh, can't sleep the whole night through
When I am missing you

I'm thinking it out loud
I wish I could reach out
And hold you close 
When I'm in Tokyo

When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
When I'm in Tokyo, (when I'm in Tokyo)
