Carrie Underwood - Little Toy Guns











Il testo

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
 Fighting at the drop of a faucet
 Cuts through the walls, catastrophic
 She’s caught in the crossfire

Puts her hands over her ears
 Starts talking through the tears
 And she’s saying, and she’s praying

I wish words were like little toy guns
 No sting, no hurting 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 scorecard
 And just turn off all the noise

I wish words were like little toy guns
 No sting, no hurting 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 like were little toy guns)
 And just a bang, bang rolling off your tongue
 (I wish words were like little toy guns)

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 hurting 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)
 Toy guns

Oh, like little toy guns

traduzione

Tra i cappotti nell’armadio
 Teneva quel medaglione a forma di cuore
 Fissava una famiglia, perfetta
 Ma non è una bella foto stasera

Mamma e papà proprio non vogliono smettere
 Di litigare con la goccia di un rubinetto
 Bucano le pareti, catastrofico
 Si è trovata in mezzo ad una sparatoria

Mette le mani sulle sue orecchie
 Inizia a parlare, mentre piange
 E lei sta dicendo, e sta pregando

Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo
 Senza pungiglione, senza ferire nessuno
 Solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 Si, senza fumo, senza proiettili
 Nessun colpo dal grilletto quando quando lo tiri
 Nessun dolore, nessun danno fatto
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 E solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)

Vorrei che ci fosse una bandiera bianca che sventoli
 O che entrambi stessero semplicemente fingendo
 e che fosse sempre stato tutto un gioco a cui stavano giocando
 Come cowboy sparatutto
 
Lasciare le pistole di plastica in giardino
 Buttare via il segnapunti
 E disattivare proprio tutti i rumori

Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo
 Senza pungiglione, senza ferire nessuno
 Solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 Si, senza fumo, senza proiettili
 Nessun colpo dal grilletto quando quando lo tiri
 Nessun dolore, nessun danno fatto
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 E solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)

Pistole giocattolo

Oh, vorrei che loro non abbiano tagliato come un coltello
 Vorrei che non si ruppero dentro te
 Vorrei che non avessero fatto alvun bang, bang
 Ti fanno che venir voglia di correre

Senza pungiglione, senza ferire nessuno
 Solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 Si, senza fumo, senza proiettili
 Nessun colpo dal grilletto quando quando lo tiri
 Nessun dolore, nessun danno fatto
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 E solo un botto, bang rotolare fuori la lingua
 (Vorrei che parole fossero come piccole pistole giocattolo)
 Pistole giocattolo

Oh, come piccole pistole giocattolo
