Tin Soldier

by Minor Birds



Run away little soldier
Before she lets you down
Pull your boat from the water or I'm afraid that you might drown

Turn away little soldier, don't look her in the eyes
For if you try to brave the fire
I'm not sure that you'll survive

And though you're nearly broken
And your heart is made of tin
Deep inside it's molten
From the fire that burns within

I'm not brave little soldier
But what I fear the most
Is not the water nor the fire
But to be haunted by your ghost
