Rina Sawayama - Akasaka Sad

[Intro]
ドアが閉まります

[Verse 1]
Hotel corridor
Blacked out rear window
Crawling under my skin
Flew here to escape
But I feel the same
Jetlag making me thin

[Pre-Chorus]
Sucks to be me (Ayy)
Sucks to be so lonely
Egyptian sheets (Ayy)
Unraveling slowly
Don't look at me (Ayy)
Fragile, I bruise easily
You make me

[Chorus]
Akasaka sad 'cause I'm a
Sucker, sucker, so I suffer
Akasaka Sawayama
Just like my mother
Akasaka sad 'cause I'm a
Sucker, sucker, so I suffer
Akasaka Sawayama
Just like my father

The song sees Rina discussing feeling displaced from Japan and wondering if this is how her parents felt when they were immigrants in London. It plays into the themes of familial trauma and legacy brought up by Dynasty. She said of the song: “I always hope that Tokyo will make me feel happier but it doesn’t, and the song is about how depression follows you around wherever you go.”
