You're bankrupt in your
Bankrupt in your heart
Don't even look at me
My words could shatter glass
And as a toy soldier from my past
Have no use for you
I took you off my shelf

Don't you know I'm here for someone else
Don't be so charming
Don't be so charming

Severely lonely,
But that doesn't bother me
I got a boy on the corner
Who'd love to be kissing me, hugging me, holding me tight
I won't feel the need to call you at night

No, no, no, no, no I take it back
All I've ever said
All the things I never really meant
Take me back
I want my toy soldier
It's okay if we play pretend
I promise to forget
You're plastic and on my shelf
Let's fake romance
And I'll be someone else

Don't even touch me
My hands are cold as ice
And as a toy soldier in my life
Have nothing left to give
And all this fighting hurts
The more I yell at you
The less you seem to learn

No, no, no, no, no I take it back
All I've ever said
All the things I never really meant
Take me back I want my toy soldier
It's okay if we play pretend
I promise to forget you're plastic
And on my shelf
Let's fake romance and I'll be someone else

You're bankrupt in your, bankrupt in your heart
You're bankrupt in your, bankrupt in your heart
But I still feel the need
To see you through the night
