Who'll be my Montague now,
To this broken Capulet
How, how, how if not for you
And you'll be my local hero
Be my role model
And don't, don't, don't fail me now

(My love)

Don't you want love,
Don't you want love,
I'm your biggest fan
It's so good to finally meet ya
I deserve a little more
Wouldn't you say-oh, a-oh, a-oh

(My love)

Don't you want love,
Don't you want too
Don't you think I deserve better after all that we've been through (love)
Don't you want love (love)
Now what you say-oh, a-oh, a-oh

To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers

I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers

Toy soldiers

I will love you like goodbye
I will love you like you died, died
Martyred for me

(My love)

Don't you want love
Don't you want this
Don't you look so shocked
This was not the way I planned it
I deserve a little more
Wouldn't you say-oh, a-oh, a-oh

(My love)

Don't you want love,
Don't you fight back
Know this will hurt less if you just submit so (love)
How bout a little gratitude
For what I say-oh, a-oh, a-oh

To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers

I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers

They don't know you
Not like I do
Only you and I were meant to be
Understand you
Just like I do
Just like you and I were meant to be forever

One day you will
Learn to love me
One day you will
Thank me, you'll see
If I can't have you
No one can

Follow you like (toys)
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like (follow you like toys)
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers
I'll follow you like
To-o-o-o-o-oy soldiers

I'll follow

Understand you
Just like I do
Just like you and I were meant to be
Don't know you
Not like I do
Only you and I were meant to be

Understand you
Just like I do
Just like you and I were meant to be forever

    It's a song to girl that thinks that men is her puppet and hes says i'll follow you like toy soldiers. But toy soldiers are toys. They do nothing.

    I think it's about a stalker
    especially the part where he sings one day you will learn to love me
    or the beginning "be my role modell and don't fail me now"
    or it's overly attached girlfriend you never know :d

    A creepy stalker knws that you can't be with this person that they obsess over so they try to do everything in their power and more trying to meet/ be with them

    Awkward moment when you are all guessing when the band themselves have said that it is just about stalkers they have had.
