I am the little tin soldier
That wants to jump into your fire
You, oh, look in your eye
A dream passing by in the skies

I don't understand
All I need is to treat me like a man
I ain't no child, take me like I am

I've got some love that belongs to you
I'll do anything that you want me to
I'll sing any song that you want me
To sing to you

All I need is your whispered hello
Smile smelting the snow, nothing heard
Your eyes, oh, deeper than time
I see a love that won't rhyme without words

So now bless my way
I need help to show me things to say
Give me your love
Before mine breaks away

I've got some love that belongs to you
I'll do anything that you want me to
I'll sing any song that you want me
To sing to you

I don't need no aggrevation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you understand

I've got some love that belongs to you
I'll do anything that you want me to
I'll sing any song that you want me
To sing to you

I am the little tin soldier
That wants to jump into your fire
You, oh, look in your eye
A dream passing by in the skies

I don't understand
All I need is to treat me like a man
I ain't no child, take me like I am

I've got some love that belongs to you
I'll do anything that you want me to
I'll sing any song that you want me
To sing to you

I just wan't some reaction
Someone to give me satisfaction
I love you
