Broken Toy

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
