Track Name: Tokyo Lights
Tokyo lights, when am I coming home?
Tokyo lights, it has been way too long
Tokyo lights I never meant to let you go
Tokyo lights...

I've got the next train with towers bending over me, right in front of me, like a library of books you know I never read
So come with me and I'll show you these city lights, how they caught my eye and stayed forever.

Taxi signs, people are going home
Crosswalks lines, I feel like a merry go round
But who am I? Lost in these city lights
The Tokyo lights my home

I've got the next train with towers bending over me, right in front of me, like a library of books you know I never read
So come with me and I'll show you these city lights, how they caught my eye and stayed forever

I want to be in the center, get lost in these crowds forever where no one knows my name...
Where no one knows my face...

Tokyo lights, when am I coming home?
Track Name: Silent Sleeper
Silent sleeper, sun-dyed living room
Couldn't go back to sleep when his eyes are on you
You're the reason you're always on his mind
Crayons crossing lines with no direction

Relax, don't fidget with your hands
Deep breaths, now hold it in your chest

Sweetheart, love you can
But it is not with a watchful man

Champagne bottle lying on the floor
Didn't want to ask for more so you left it spilling
You're a famous writer, he's a searching kind of man
With a resume in his hands- impressive nothings

Slow down and reason with yourself
Rest assured like a book upon your shelf

Sweetheart, love you can
But it is not with a watchful man

Potential lover, with your coat hanging in his closet
But it don't match like the photo in his wallet
of a quiet smile that only hurts the eyes
You're a silent sleeper, calculated sunrise

Sweetheart, love you can
But it is not with a watchful man

But is not with a watchful man...
