(Gary Moore)

He sees her face in the mirror.
But as he turns, she starts to fade.
He hears her footsteps behind him.
But when he looks, she's gone again.


He hears her voice in the darkness.
As he awakes, she calls his name.
He sees her shadow on the wall
And counts her tears in the falling rain.


She has passed away
A long, long time ago.
Why she haunts him to this day,
He'll never know.


Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.


Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.


Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.
