Broken Toy

Written by: Larry Belt

I watch your kisses fade away
Your smiles all disappear
You thank God I'm home to stay
But indifferent, when I'm near

The love I see within your eyes
Are remnants from the past
I'm no longer your heart's prize
The promise didn't last

You gave your country all you had
They gave you back a chair
That's all you see, you're always sad
But war is never fair

I'd rather they shot me in the head
So I wouldn't know your name
They took away your life instead
But I'm the one you blame

I watch each day as our love dies
Crippled, I've stolen your joy
You look at me with pitiful eyes
Like a child sees a broken toy
