This post is inspired by my recent visits to Akihabara which can be read here. This post is how I feel about Tokyo. The lyrics below are from the opening sequence in the drama, Densha Otoko (Train Man) which is based in Tokyo and Akihabara. Read along:
The visions dancing in my mind The early dawn, the shades of time Twilight crawling through my windowpane Am I awake or do I dream? The strangest pictures I have seen Night is day and twilight's gone away With your head held high and your scarlet lies You came down to me from the open skies It's either real or it's a dream There's nothing that is in between... Twilight Japan, I only meant to stay awhile Twilight Tokyo, I gave you time to steal my mind... Away from me. Across the night I saw your face You disappeared without a trace You brought me here, but can you take me back? Inside the image of your light That now is day and once was night You lead me here and then you go away. Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile Twilight, Twilight, Twilight, Twilight. If you replace Twilight with the words Japan, the song is how I feel. The opening sequence of the drama with song can be seen here.
