Lyrics:

Winters cityside
Crystal bits of snow­flakes all around my head and in the wind
I had no illusions
That Id ever find a glimps of sum­mers heat­waves in your eyes
You did what you did to me, now its his­tory I see
Heres my comeback on the road again
Things will hap­pen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight, its easy when your big in Japan

When your big in Japan, tonight
Big in japan, be tight, big in Japan where the east­ern seas so blue
Big in Japan, alright, pay, then Ill sleep by your side
Things are easy when youre big in Japan, when youre big in Japan

Neon on my naked skin
Passing sil­hou­ettes of strange illu­min­ated mannequins
Shall I stay here at the zoo
Or shall I go and change my point of view for oth­er ugly scenes
You did what you did to me, now its his­tory I see…
Things will hap­pen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight, its easy when youre big in Japan
