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?
