Discovering japan

by Graham Parker. Buy album CD: Live Alone Discovering Japan

[intro] Bm D A (3 times)

D Bm
Her heart is nearly breaking, the earth is nearly quaking
The Tokyo's taxi's braking, it's screaming to a halt
G A Bm G
And there's nothing to hold on to when gravity betrays you
A D Bm
And every kiss enslaves you-oo-oo

D Bm
She knows how hard her heart grows under the nuclear shadows
She can't escape the feeling repeating in her head
G A Bm G
When after all the urges some kind of truth emerges
We felt the deadly surges

Bm A G D A
Discovering Japan--an --an
Bm A G D A G D Bm Bm
Discovering Japan--an --an

D Bm
The GIs only use her, they only ram right through her
Giving an eastern promise, that they could never keep
G A Bm G
Seeing a million miles, between their joke and smiles
She heard their hard denials [don't pause]

Bm A
As the tears dropped sideways down her face, face
Bm A
I woke up talking in the tongue of a different race, race
Bm G
And as the flight touches down my watch says 8:02
F#m Bm D A
But that's midnight to you,
Bm D A Bm D A / G A
Midnight to you Midight to you

D Bm
I dreamed headlong collisions in jet lag panavisions
I shouted sayonara it didn't mean goodbye
G A Bm G
But lovers turn to posers show up in film exposures
Just like in travel brochures
Bm A G D A Bm A G D A

  1. That's what they all say
  2. Platinum blonde
  3. Mercury poisoning
  4. Sweet 16
  5. No Woman No Cry
  6. Lunatic fringe
  7. Long stem rose
  8. Discovering japan
  9. Don't ask me questions
  10. Watch the moon come down
  11. Just Like Herman Hesse
  12. Too many knots to untangle
  13. Chopsticks
  14. Short memories
