I died too 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

You can't tell the ones you love
You know they couldn't deal
Whisper in a dead man's ear
Doesn't make it real

That's great but I don't wanna play
Being with you touches me
More than I can say
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 lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
Let me rest in peace

You know you got a willing slave
And you just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave

But till 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

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 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?
