Made my mark on this street
A life I choose
Twenty years lost in this heat
When I met you
All I wanted was something I could touch
something I could hold, something I could keep

I’ve been disgraced and mutilated
Then I look back on all I wasted

Why don’t you bury me
Why don’t you bury me somewhere that’s green

I know I wasn’t the perfect one but
God I tried
I always tried to make you happy
I failed, I lied

Keep the peace between us both
I’ll take a piece of you with me

Why don’t you bury me?
Why don’t bury me somewhere that’s green

I sit alone inside this house
Maybe I was all along
So why don’t you bury me?

Why don't you bury me, somewhere you're happy
Why don't you bury me?
