“Tokyo” is the the only song completely performed in English on mono.
‘Tokyo’ written in Japanese is 東京, and 東京 in Korean is 동경, which translates in English as ‘the state of longing.’
With background city noise followed by this melodic piano instrumental, the song depicts waking up in both Tokyo and this state of longing. The lyrics express the hollowness of both missing something, from home to a person, and wanting to be comforted.
