Her heart is nearly breaking, the earth is nearly quaking.
The Tokyo taxi's braking, it's screaming to a halt.
There's nothing to hold on to, when gravity betrays you,
And ev'ry kiss enslaves you.....
She knows how hard her heart grows, under the nuclear shadows,
She can't escape the feeling, repealing in her head.
When after all the urges, some kind of truth emerges,
We felt the deadly surges, Discovering Japan, Discovering Japan.
The G.I.'s only use her, they always ram right through her,
Giving an eastern promise, that they could never keep.
See-ing the million miles, between their jokes and smiles,
She heard their hard denials.......
As the tears drop sideways down her face, face,
I wake up taling in the tongue of a diff'rent race, race,
And as the flight touches down, my watch says Eight-O-Two,
But that's me at night to you, me at night to you,
Me at night to you.......................
I dream in long collisions, in jet-lagged pana-visions,
I shouted "Sayonara", It didn't mean good-bye.
But lovers turn to poses, show up in filmed exposures,
Just like in travel brochures, Discovering Japan, Discovering Japan,
Discovering Japan, Discovering Japan,
Discovering Japan, Discovering Japan.
