Sunset Arcade

Lyrics

Hundred yen coins in the Sunset Arcade
What am I to do with the memories made
Really had fun, wouldn’t change it, no shade
We leave our love’s ghost in the Sunset Arcade, yeah
We leave our love’s ghost in the Sunset Arcade

Touch down Tokyo Narita
Onigiri, aspirin, heavy bags
Early, early mornings, hey jet lag
Shoulda known then you would never be happier
Suddenly sweet simplicity
I always felt like there was something wrong with me
Puzzle piece fit so perfectly
In between roots of a cherry tree

Half way across the world
But I could do it knowing I was your girl
Had so much hope for the things we planned
Who could have predicted the way we’d disband
The night before departure
I was inconsolable
You told me you cried
Into your hand held console
I like to believe that’s when we really broke up
Little more than bitterness spills from my cup, now
But there’s just one sweetness I would never trade
The time I beat your score in the Sunset Arcade

Hundred yen coins in the Sunset Arcade
Try as I might
that’s the one that won’t fade
Lost a whole life with you, none of that stayed
Except for those nights in the Sunset Arcade
Hundred yen coins in the Sunset Arcade
What am I to do with the memories made
Really had fun, wouldn’t change it, no shade
We leave our love’s ghost in the Sunset Arcade, yeah
We leave our love’s ghost in the Sunset Arcade, yeah
