Rina Sawayama - Tokyo Love Hotel

[Intro]
(Tokyo)
(Tokyo)
(Tokyo) People don't know what they're taking until it's gone

[Verse 1]
You got that something that everyone wants
You got that movie star glow
You got them askin' to have you on their skin
Even though they don't know

[Pre-Chorus]
They don't know you like I know you, no, they don't
Use you for one night and then away they go
Thought I was original, but after all
I guess this is just another song 'bout Tokyo (東京)

[Chorus]
I don't wanna check into the Tokyo Love Hotel
I just want your love all to myself
Everybody's staying at the Tokyo Love Hotel
I just want your love all to myself
Tokyo
Tokyo
Tokyo
I guess this is just another song 'bout Tokyo

Tokyo Love Hotel is the 11th track off Rina Sawayama's debut full-length album 'SAWAYAMA'. The track was written by Sawayama herself, Lauren Aquilina and Oscar Scheller along with production by frequent collaborator Clarence Clarity. The song is an 80s tinged synthpop jam about Tokyo being reduced to an aesthetic wonderland by Western tourists. Rina described the song as “getting frustrated by people having casual sex with Japanese culture”. The song was debuted live for the first time at Moth Club London on March 30, 2019 before its studio version was released on SAWAYAMA.
