Well, yesterday my teacher said that "Throw is like Toss". Then, I'm not sure.. I think that I've heard this phrase in a song "Throw My hand on a blade for you " is a common song (Grenade - Bruno Mars).

My question is in the song, he's using throw like cut? e.g. = I'd cut my hand on a blade for ya

I don't understand clearly. Someone can help me?

According to a dictionary, the difference is

Toss: To throw something lightly or carelessly.

Throw: To send something from your hand through the air by moving your hand or arm quickly.

So in the song it is used implying he will do that powerfully and not lightly (It means he is going to harm himself, that wouldn't happen if he "tossed" his hand on the blade).
