The complete lyrics - all in good time

27 Woman from Tokyo

(Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice) Frå Deep Purple albumet Who Do We Think We Are

Orda er eufemistiske...sangen handler ikkje om ei kvinne i det heile teke, men spenninga og forventningane frå vår fyrste tur til Japan, som viste seg å vere ei flott oppleving i ei tid da kulturar var mindre svekka av transport og kommunikasjons utstyr som vi kjenner i dag. Det var ein eksotisk pioner reise, som aldri vil bli gløymd.

I denne samanhengen er orda antagelig sjølvforklarande.

Woman From Tokyo var ein av berre to låter som vart teke opp og gitt ut frå ein lang og vanskelig tid i Roma; den andre var Painted Horse.

Woman From Tokyo

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)

Fly into the rising sun,
Faces, smiling everyone
Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
I feel it in my heart

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

Talk about her like a Queen
Dancing in a Eastern Dream
Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
That carries me away

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me

But I'm at home and I just don't belong ...

So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove
Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When we're alone in Her City of light

Rising from the neon gloom
Shining like a crazy moon
Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
I get high

My woman from Tokyo
She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me
