Toy Soldiers Lyrics

Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers

It wasn't my intention to mislead you
It never should have been this way
What can I say
It's true, I did extend the invitation
I never knew how long you'd stay

When you hear temptation call
It's your heart that takes, takes the fall
Won't you come out and play with me

Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

It's getting hard to wake up in the morning
My head is spinning constantly
How can it be?
How could I be so blind to this addiction?
If I don't stop, the next one's gonna be me

Only emptiness remains
It replaces all, all the pain
Won't you come out and play with me

Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

We never win

Only emptiness remains
It replaces all, all the pain
Won't you come out and play with me

Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

Step by step
Heart to heart
Left, right, left
We all fall down
Like toy soldiers

Bit by bit
Torn apart
We never win
But the battle wages on
For toy soldiers

Those of you saying this song is about child abuse is wrong as well as those saying its about HER drug addiction. It IS about drugs but not Vida doing drugs. She's lost friends to drugs so she wrote the song. Those asking about her, she's kicked off a new tour MIRROR BALL TOUR & it's worldwide.

It's creepy but true. The more a realistic person can be, and the more self aware .... the better chance to overcome.

A beautiful song just reminding my childhood when I used to listen to this song every now and then in the radio.Is there any new release from Martika?

This song is so beautiful and speaks to my soul. It's about an addiction. I myself have a drug problem but songs like this make me want to change

I wish they would play this song more often today. There are so many addicts out there that need desparate help. It's a tragedy. Admitting you have a problem is the 1st step & she portrays that!

Martika claimed that the inspiration for the song came from a friend who was battling cocaine addiction at the time.

It doesnt matter who sang it, both versions seem like they are different situations. Either way the songs are both amazing. Especially this one.

Original is usually best. This was way out on top way before Eminem. Brilliant then and still is today.
