Bon Jovi Tokio Road Lyrics

In a time, in a place

In a world, they forgot

Lives the heart of me

A part that just won’t die

Just a boy, not a man

Sent to war, in a land

They said we’d fight for their freedom

But I felt like a hired hand

Sometimes I have to find my way

Sometimes I have to get away

[Chorus]

Take me back to Tokyo Road

Take me back to Tokyo Road

Working hard, for a pass

Got the night, make it last

It was a time to remember

All my life I would never forget

In a bar, breathing smoke

Snorting whiskey, drinking coke

It was a time when no one would die

And there wasn’t a care

Sometimes I wish it was that way

Cause sometimes I have to get away

[Chorus]

This guy turns me around and he’s pointing up the stairs

I found myself in her doorway but there wasn’t anybody there

She walked in the room with nothing on but a red light

And with a smile she got so close to me.

She whispered something ’bout midnight

You know I didn’t understand a word she said

But it felt so good

She knew that I didn’t have any money

But baby I knew she would…

[Chorus]
