I died So many years ago But you can make me feel Like it isn't so And why you come to be with me I think I finally know Mmmm
You're scared Ashamed of what you feel And you can't tell the ones you love You know they couldn't deal A whisper in a dead man's ear, It doesn't make it real
That's great - - But I don't wanna play 'Cuz being with you touches me More than I can say But 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 part that you might misbehave But 'till you do I'm tellin' 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
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?
