Toy Soldiers (Demo) Lyrics – Sarahbeth Taite

He grew up down the hall from me
My room was pink, his was Army green
Yeah, I can still see him
Taking up the whole living room floor
With his G.I. Joes and a pillow fort
Only one thing he ever wanted to be

He was born to be a soldier
That was always his American dream
He’s got a rifle on his shoulder
And a wife at home he’s dying to see
He’s a lover and a fighter
And now it ain’t just me he’s standing up for
When did he become a man
He was just a boy
But he ain’t playing toy soldiers anymore

I’m proud, but I’d be lying if I said
Part of me wasn’t scared to death
of losing my best friend

I can’t stand watching mom and dad
Say goodbye and pray that he’ll come back again
But we’ll all hold our breath ’cause

He was born to be a soldier
That was always his American dream
He’s got a rifle on his shoulder
And a wife at home he’s dying to see
He’s a lover and a fighter
And now it ain’t just me he’s standing up for
When did he become a man

He was just a boy
But he ain’t playing toy soldiers anymore

He grew up down the hall from me
And in my mind, that’s where he’ll always be

He was born to be a soldier
That was always his American dream
Now there’s a rifle on his shoulder
And a wife at home he’s dying to see
He’s a lover and a fighter
And now it ain’t just me he’s standing up for
When did he become a man
To me, he’s just a boy
But he ain’t playing toy soldiers anymore

No, he ain’t playing toy soldiers anymore
