1.     Winter's cityside,    crystal bits of snowflakes

     F                                               E

    all around my head and in the wind.

Am                            G

     I had no illusions      that I'd ever find

         F                                                             E

    a glimpse of summer's heatwaves in your eyes.

Am                 F                    G                  E            F

     You did what you did to me, now it's history, I see,

                     Dm                        E

    here's my comeback on the road again.

Am                   F                           G

     Things will happen while they can,

               E                        F

    I will wait here for my man tonight,

          Dm                        E

    it's easy when you're big in Japan.

 

                         Am  - F                          - G         - E

You're big in Japan,      you're big in Ja......pan,

                          F   - Dm                   E

you're big in Japan,         yeah, it's there!

                         Am

You're big in Japan,

                F                  G                              E

then I'll sleep by your side, all through the night,

                    F           Dm                       E

things are there, it's easy, though I'm here.

 

   Am                                 G

2.     Neon on my naked skin, passing silhouettes

            F                                      E

    of strange illuminated mannequins.

Am                                      G                 

     Shall I stay here at the zoo, should I go and change

            F                                           E

    my point of view for other ugly scenes.

 

 

 

 

 

Am                 F                    G                  E            F

     You did what you did to me, now it's history, I see,

                     Dm                         E

    here's my comeback on the road again.

Am                  F                           G

    Things will happen while they can,

               E                        F

    I will wait here for my man tonight,

          Dm                        E

    it's easy when you're big in Japan.
