  • In between the coats in the closet
    She held on to that heart shaped locket
    Staring at a family flawless
    But it ain't a pretty picture tonight
    Mom and daddy just won't stop it
    Fightin' at the drop of the faucet
    Cuts through the walls catastrophic
    She's caught in the crossfire

    Puts her hands over her ears
    Starts talking through the tears
    She's saying, she's praying.

    I wish words were like little toy guns
    No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang
    Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    Yeah, no smoke, no bullets
    No kick from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)

    Wish there was a white flag waving
    Or that they were both just faking
    And it was just a game they were playing
    Like shoot'em up cowboys
    Leave the plastic pistols in the front yard
    Throw away the score card
    And just turn off all the noise.

    I wish words were like little toy guns
    No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang
    Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    Yeah, no smoke, no bullets
    No kick from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)

    Oh I wish they didn't cut like a knife
    I wish they didn't break you inside
    I wish they didn't bang bang make you wanna run, yeah

    Like little toy guns
    No sting, no hurt no one, just a bang bang
    Rolling off your tongue (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    Yeah, no smoke, no bullets
    No shot from the trigger when you pull it, no pain, no damage done
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)
    And just a bang bang rolling off your tongue
    (I wish words were like little toy guns)

    Oh like little toy guns Writer/s: CHRIS DESTEFANO, HILLARY LINDSEY, CARRIE UNDERWOOD
