I am currently without a tripod, so please forgive the occasional hard-hitting piano induced bouncing!
This song was written after my family returned from a trip to Japan and my Dad told me the vintage scene was huge in Tokyo and I would fit in there perfectly. With a heavy helping of Doris Day's 'Shanghai' for inspiration (I love that song!) If you're in Tokyo or have been and have photos of the vintage/ pin up/ rockabilly scene there, PLEASE post them to my page (http://www.facebook.com/ilanacharnelle) or my website (http://ilanacharnelle.tumblr.com), I'd love to see them!
Tokyo (c) Ilana Charnelle 2012 What do you do with a suitcase Empty purse and a swelling heart Standing at the crowded gate Ready for my next story to start I've had enough of the quiet life Empty streets and homes I want to go out somewhere Where I feel less alone
I think I'll go To Tokyo Give me sounds and lights To make me feel alright Dressed to the nines I'll fit in fine Yes I think I'll go to Tokyo tonight
What do you do when suddenly Your home don't cut it no more I used to love this place But now I've got the itch to explore I've had enough of the quiet life Give me crowds in rows and rows I want to go out somewhere Where they feel the same I know
