rest in peace lyrics – buffy

i died so many years ago,
you can make me feel like it isn’t so,
why you come to be with me,
i think i finally know…
you’re scared… ashamed of what you feel,
and you can’t tell the ones you love,
you know they couldn’t deal,
whisper in a dead man’s ear,
that doesn’t make it real…
that’s great but i don’t wanna play,
cos being with you touches me more than i could say,
and since i’m only dead to you,
i’m saying stay away,
and let me rest in peace

let me rest in peace, let me get some sleep,
let me take my love and bury it in a hole six foot deep,
i can lay my body down, but i can’t find my sweet release,
so let me rest in peace….

you know you got a willing slave,
and you just love to play the thought where you might misbehave,
until you do i’m telling you stop visiting my grave,
and let me rest in peace

i know i should go,
but i follow you like a man possessed,
there’s a traitor here beneath my breast,
and it hurts me more than you’ve ever guessed,
if my heart could beat it would break my chest,
but i can see you’re unimpressed,
so leave me be…

and let me rest in peace, let me get some sleep,
let me take my love and bury it in a hole six foot deep,
i can lay my body down, but i can’t find my sweet release,
let me rest in peace, why won’t you let me rest in peace.
