Lyrics:

Please don’t take my love away

Lonely in Tokyo
Neon can’t light the road
Reach out in need of hope
With nowhere to go

Lonely in Tokyo
Black suits gonna pay for love
They never give enough
There’s no place like home

When I see five bucks on the table
I know my mom’s out wasted
So unstable

When I go to the 24-hour store
Everything taste so plastic
I don’t wanna eat no more

Beep, beep, beep, there goes my phone
How much to be alone?
What do I do? Where do I go?

One more drink, I’m right back home
One little dinner won’t crush my soul
Dior bag, how can I say no?

We are lonely in Tokyo
Neon can’t light the road
Reach out, in need of hope
With nowhere to go

Lonely in Tokyo
Black suits gonna pay for love
They never give enough
There’s no place like home

So I dance
Lip syncing on the stage
Sing the lyrics they made
Trapped in a golden cage

And I pose half-naked on the cover
Photoshopped like no other
Loved but I got no lover

Beep, beep, beep, there goes my phone
Why won’t they leave me alone?
What did I do? Where did I go?
Dressed me up just like a doll
But they don’t know me at all
It’s time to stand up and say no!

We are lonely in Tokyo
Neon can’t light the road
Reach out, in need of hope
With nowhere to go

Lonely in Tokyo
Black suits gonna pay for love
They never give enough
There’s no place like home

Money can’t solve my problems
Money don’t make no change
Buy my CD just to hold my hand
But they don’t even know my name
They never let me complain
Just my body on the brain
I don’t need nice things, shoes and rings,
to be myself and do my thing

We are lonely in Tokyo
Neon can’t light the road
Reach out, in need of hope
With nowhere to go

Lonely in Tokyo
Black suits gonna pay for love
They never give enough
There’s no place like home
