PLANE LEAVING TOKYO (Robert J. Purvis)


I'm waving goodbye on a plane leaving Tokyo

Part of my heart will remain there

I take only memories home

It's four after nine on a plane leaving Tokyo

The cold angry sky looms around me

I think of my love down below


I'm waving goodbye

I'm waving goodbye

Remember our love is forever

The plane ride won't keep us apart

My darling, goodbye


A tear fills my eye on a plane leaving Tokyo

As Japanese skies fade behind me

I know that our love will prevail

I'm waving goodbye on a plane leaving Tokyo

Although there'll be miles in-between us

You'll always be here in my heart


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye

Remember our love is forever

The plane ride won't keep us apart

My darling, goodbye


[slide guitar solo]


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye

Remember our love is forever

The plane ride won't keep us apart


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye

As Japanese skies fade behind me

I know that our love will prevail


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye

Although there'll be miles in-between us

You'll always be here in my heart


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye

Remember our love is forever

The plane ride won't keep us apart


My darling, goodbye

My darling, goodbye...
