lyrics

Don't cry for me by my grave, cos I'm not really gone
My body's six feet underground but my spirit's living on
Don't cry for me by my grave, cast off your veil so black
You thought you'd seen the last of me but I am coming back

Remember a time when it was just you and me, Mary Lee?
You stood by my side, an angel to watch over me
Now you stand there and cry as they close the lid over me
No, I never thought this was how the ending would be

Don't cry for me by my grave then think that you can just go
Your planning was impeccable but you'll reap what you've sown
Don't cry for me by my grave, spare me your crocodile tears
I see the hatred in your eyes - I'm stood right here, my dear

Remember a time when it was just you and me, Mary Lee?
You stood by my side, an angel to watch over me
Now I see through your lies as the gravedigger's lowering me
I never foresaw the way that you'd turn on me

Don't cry for me by my grave, don't put on such a show
No one in town suspects a thing, but girl I surely know
Don't cry for me by my grave and mock me as I lie
The blow you dealt me was enough to end my mortal life

Remember a time when it was just you and me, Mary Lee?
You stood by my side, and angel to watch over me
Now I watch as you smile as they're piling the soil over me
No, I never guessed that you'd be the one who killed me

So save your tears for yourself cos darling, this ain't the end
I'll haunt your every hour til you are lyin' here with me, my friend

Don't cry for me by my grave, don't waste your time, cos you see...
You're gonna pay for what you've done, ma belle dame sans merci
