I died
So many years ago
You can make me feel
Like it isn't so
And why you come to be with me
I think I finally know
Mmm

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
It doesn't make it real

That's great
But I don't want to play
Because being with you touches me
More than I can 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
You just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
Until you do, I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave
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?

    General CommentRowr! James Masters is yummy...and his voice is even yummier. Catchy chorus and sexy vocals make this one of the best songs of the musical ep.

    General CommentSpike is sooo hot in this song and he is such and excellent singer, he's got the mood perfectly. In that part where it goes "I follow you like a man possesed" He looks like a little kid singer there I think and in another part earlier in the song, he has such an evil look in his eyes, it fit him perfectly :)
