Marianas Trench – Toy Soldiers lyrics

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

    I've heard different opinions about this song. I feel like he is writing from the pov of the person who did this to him. It is dark; you can feel the illogical frustration in the lines, "you will learn to love me," "don't fight back", "this will hurt less if you just submit", and "how bout a little gratitude". Almost like revealing the thoughts of a psychotic obsession towards someone. Abusive and controlling, but in a rationalized manner. Very haunting.

    This song is about an obsessive love. This is such an agressive love that he doesn't feel like he's doing anything wrong, and shes not treating him the way he should be treated. He loves her so much and he feels like she isn't giving that love back, and its frustrating to him, because he knows that he knows more to her than any other man and hes willing to stand by her. Eventually, I believe that she left him with no notice whatsoever because he was suffocating. She left him, and now it feels like shes as good as dead. He doesn't have her anymore, and hes going to "mourn her leaving him". Shes his capulet.
