lyrics

BROKEN TOY
(Ricardo)
————

INTRO
G (x4)

VERSE
G C Am
Just like a broken toy, I’ve had my fun
G C Am
And like a broken toy, my happy times are done
Em B7 C G G/F#
I walked right into it, when I should have run
F C G
Far, far away from everyone

VERSE
G C Am
If you were there with me, you’d understand
G C Am
I am my enemy; no one to reprimand
Em B7 C G G/F#
A shadow’s fallen on things that I had planned
F C G
And so I sleep with leaden hands

BRIDGE (instrumental solo)
G Bm G7 C Am D Am D D7

VERSE
G C Am
Blue as the ocean is blue as the sky
G C Am
Blue as the lack of pigmentation in my eye
Em B7 C G G/F#
Blue as a pilot light, burning up inside
F C G
All day and all of the night
F C G
All day and all of the night
