Buffy: Every single night the same arrangement, I go out and fight the fight Still I always feel the strange estrangement, nothing here is real, nothing here is right. Ive been making show of trading blows just hoping no one knows that Ive been going through the motions. Walking through the part. Nothing seems to penetrate my heart. I was always brave and kind of righteous, now I find Im wavering. Crawl out of your grave you find the fight just doesnt mean a thing.
Vampire1: She aint got that swing.
Buffy: Thanks for noticing.
Vamp 1,2, and demon: She does pretty well with fiends from hell, but lately we can tell shes just going through the motions. Faking it somehow.
Demon: Shes not even half the girl she...oww.
Buffy: Will I stay this way forever. Sleepwalk through my lifes endeavor.
Victim: How can I repay..
Buffy: Whatever. I dont wanna be going through the motions. Losing all my drive. I cant even see if this is really me. And I just wanna be...Alive!

Willow: Ive got a theory. Some kid is dreamin and were all stuck inside his wacky Broadway nightmare.
Xander: Ive got a theory we should work this out.

Anya: Ive got a theory, it could be bunnies.
Tara: Ive got a theory...
Anya: Bunnies arent just cute like everybody supposes. They got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses. And whats with all those carrots. What do they need such good eyesight for anyway. Bunnies, bunnies, it might be bunnies (old music) or maybe midgets.
Willow: Ive got a theory we should work this fast.
Giles and Willow: Because it clearly could get serious before its past.
Buffy: Ive got a theory...it dosnt matter.
Buffy: What does it matter. What cant we face if were together? Whats in this place that we cant weather? Apocolypse. Weve all been there. The same old trips, why should we care?
All: What cant we do if we get in it? Well work it through with in a minute. We have to try, well pay the price. Its do or die.
Buffy: Hey Ive died twice.
All: What cant we face if were together? Whats in this place that we cant weather? Theres nothing we cant face.
Im Under Your Spell
Tara: I lived my life in shadow, never the sun on my face. It didnt seem so bad though, I figured that was my place. Now Im bathed in light, something just isnt right. Im under your spell, how else could it be that anyone would notice me. Its magic I can tell, How you set me free, brought me out so easily. I saw a world enchanted. Spirits and charms in the air. I always took for granted. I was the only one there. but your powers shown, brighter than any Ive known. Im under you spell. Nothing I can do, you just took my soul with you. You worked you charms so well. Finally I knew everything I dreamed was true. You make me believe. The moon to the tide, I can feel you inside. Im under you spell. Surging like the sea, pulled to you so helplessly. I break with every swell, lost in ecstasy. Spread beneath my willow tree. You make me complete. You make me complete. You make me complete. You make me...
I'll Never Tell
Anya: This is the man that I plan to entangle isn't he fine. My claim to fame was to mame and mangle, vengence was mine. But I'm out of the biz. The name I made I'll trade for his. The only trouble is, I'll never tell.
Xander:She is the one. She's such wonderful fun, such passion and grace. Warm in the night when I'm right in her tight embrace, tight embrace. I'll never let her go. The love we know can only grow. There's just one thing that, no, I'll never tell.
Both: Because there's nothing to tell.
Anya: He snores.
Xander: She wheezes.
Anya: Say housework and he freezes.
Xander: She eats these sceezy cheese that I can't describe.
Anya: I talk, he breezes.
Xander: She doesn't know what please is.
Anya: His penis got diseases from a Chumash tribe.
Both: The vibe gets kind of scary.
Xander: Like she thinks I'm ordinary.
Anya: Like it's all just temporary.
Xander: Like her toes are kind of hairy.
Both: But it's all very well cause God know I'll never tell.
Anya: When things get rough he just hides behind his Buffy. Now look he's getting huffy, cause he knows that I know.
Xander: She clings, she's needy, she's also really greedy. She never...
Anya: His eyes are beedy.
Xander: This is my verse hello! She...
Anya:Look at me I'm dancing crazy!
Both: you know...
Xander: You're quite the charmer.
Anya: My night in armor.
Xander: You're the cutest of the scoobies with your lips as red as rubies and your firm yet supple, tight embrace.
Anya: He's swell.
Xander: She's sweller.
Anya: He'll always be my feller.
Xander: That's why I'll never tell her that I'm petrifide.
Anya: I've read this tale, there's wedding, then betrayal. I know there'll come a day I want to run and hide.
Both: I lied, I said it's easy. I tried, but there's these fears I can't quell.
Xander: Is she looking for a pot of gold?
Anya: Will I look good when I've gotten old?
Xander: Will our lives become to stressful if I'm never that successful.
Anya: When I get so worn and wrinkly that I look like David Brinkly.
Xander: Am I crazy?
Anya: Am I dreamin'?
Xander: Am I marryin' a demon?
Both: We could really raise the beam in making marriage a hell. So thank God I'll never tell. I swear that I'll never tell.
Xander: My lips are sealed.
Anya: I take the 5th.
Xander: Nothing to see, move it along.
Both: I'll never tell.
Rest In Peace
Spike: Verse 1: I died many years ago. you can make me feel like it isn't so. Why you came to be with me, I think I finally know, mmmm. 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 wanna play. Bieng near 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 Chorus: Let me rest in peace. Let me get some sleep. Let me take my love and bury it in a whole six foot deep. I can lay my body down, but I can't find my sweet release. So let me rest in peace. Verse 2: You know know you've got a willin' slave, and you just love to play the thought that you might misbehave. But until you do I'm tellin' you stop visitin' my grave And let me rest in peace. I know I should go, but I follow you like a man posessed. 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.
Why won't you let me rest in peace.
Why Don't We Dance Awhile/ Sweets Song
Sweets: Why'd you runaway, don't you like my style? Why don't you come and play, I guarantee a great big smile. I come from the imagination, and I'm here strictly by your invocation. So whata ya say, why don't we dance awhile. I'm the heart of swing, I'm the twist and shout. When you gotta sing, when ya gotta let it out. You call me and I come a runnin'. I turn the music on, I bring the fun in. Now we're partyin'. That's what it's all about, cause I know what you feel girl. I know just what you feel girl. All these melodies, they go on too long. Then that energy starts to come on way too strong. All those hearts lay open, that must sting. Plus some customers just start combusting. That's the penalty when life is but a song. You brought me and doomed this town. So when we blow this scene, back we will go to my kingdom below and you will be my queen. cause I know what you feel girl.
(overlap)Dawn: Now you see you and me wouldn't be very regal.
Sweets: I'll make it real girl.
(overlap)Dawn: What I mean I'm 15 so this queen things illegal.
Sweets: I can bring whole cities to ruin and still have time to get a soft shoe in.
Dawn: Well that's great, but I'm late, and I'd hate to delay her.
Sweets: Somethin's cookin', I'm at the griddle. I bought Nero his very first fiddle.
Dawn: She'll be pissed if I'm missed, see my sister's the slayer.
Sweets: Now we're partyin'. That's what it's all about.
Standing in the Way
Giles: You're not ready for the world outside. You keep pretending, but you just can't hide. I know I said that I'd be standing by your side. But I... Your paths unbeaten and it's all uphill. And you can meet it, but you never will. And I'm the reason that you're standing still, but I... Wish I could play the father and take you by the hand. Wish I could stay, but now I understand, I'm standing in the way. The cries around you, you don't hear at all. Cause you know that I'm here to take that call. So you just lie there, when you should be standing tall. But I... I wish I could lay your arms down and let you rest at last. Wish I could slay your demons, but now that time is past. Wish I could stay Your stalwart standing fast. But I'm standing in the way. I'm standing in the way.
I'm Under Your Spell Reprise
Tara: I'm under your spell. God how can this be, playing with my memory. You know I've been through hell. Willow don't you see, there'll be nothing left of me. You made me believe.
Giles: believe me I don't wanna go.
Both: And It'll grieve me cause I love you so. But we both know.
Giles: Wish I could say the right words to lead you through this land. Wish I could play the father and take you by the hand.
(overlap)Tara: Wish I could trust that it was just this once, but I must do what I must do. I can't adjust to this disgust, we're done, and I just...
Both: Just wish I could stay. Wish I could stay. Wish I could stay. Wish I could stay.
Buffy: I touch the fire and freezes me, I look into and its black. why cant I feel, my skin should crack and peel. I want the fire back. Now through the smoke she calls to me to make my way across the flame, to save the day or maybe melt away I guess its all the same. So I will walk through the fire. Cause where else can I turn, I will walk through the fire and let it..
Spike: The torch I bear is scorchin' me, Buffys laughin' I no doubt. I hope she fries, Im free if that bitch dies. I better help her out.
Sweets: Cause she is drawn to the fire, some people never learn and she will walk through the fire and let it...
(overlap)Spike: She will never learn. And she will walk through the fire and let it...
Giles: Will this do a thing to change her? Am I leaving Dawn in danger? Is my slayer too far gone to care?
Xander: What if Buffy cant defeat it?
Anya: Beedy eyes is right were needed, or we could just sit around and glare.
Giles, Xander, Anya, Willow, Tara: Well see it through its what were always here to do. So we will walk through the fire and let it...
Buffy: So one by one they turn from me. I guess my friends cant face the cold. But why I froze, not one among them knows. And never can be told.
(overlap)Tara: What cant we face if we're together.
Sweets: So one by one they come to me. The distant redness as their guide. But what they find ain't what they had in mind. It's what they have inside. Now she comes to me.
(everyone overlaps Sweets)
Anya: She came from the grave much graver.
Spike: First hell kill her then Ill save her.
Tara: Everything is turning out so dark.
Buffy: Going through the motions.
Spike: No Ill save her then Ill kill her.
Willow: I think this lines mostly filler.
Giles: What its going to take to strike a spark.
Buffy: These endless days are finally ending in a blaze.
All: And we are caught in the fire, the point of no return. So we will walk through the fire and let it burn, let it burn, let it burn, let it burn.
Life's A Show
Buffy: Life's a show and we all play our parts. And when the music starts, we open up our hearts. It's alright if somethings come out wrong. We'll sing a happy song, and you can sing along. Where there's life, there's hope. Everyday's a gift. Wishes can come true. Whistle while you work. So hard all day to be like other girls. To fit in in this glittering world. Don't give me songs. Don't give me songs. Give me something to sing about. I need something to sing about. Life's s a song you don't get to rehearse. And every single verse can make it that much worse. Still my friends don't know why I ignore, the million things or more, I should be dancing for. All the joy life sends. Family and friends. All the twists And bends. Knowing that it ends. Well that depends On if they let you go. On if they know enough to know That when you bow, you leave the crowd. There was no pain No fear, nor doubt, till they pulled me out of Heaven. So that's my refrain. I live in Hell, cause I've been expelled from Heaven. I think I was in Heaven. So give me something to sing about. Please, give me something...
(burn up dance)
Spike: Life's not a song. Life isn't bliss. Life is just this, it's living. You'll get along The pain that you feel you only can heal living You have to go on living. So one of us is living.
Dawn: (spoken)The hardest in this world is to live in it.
Sweets Song Reprise
Sweets: What a lot of fun. Ya guys have been real swell. And there's not a one who can say this ended well. All those secrets you've been concealin'. Say you're happy now. Once more with feelin'. Now I gotta run. See you all in Hell.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Dawn: Where do we go from here?
Buffy and Spike: Where do we go from here?
Giles: The battles done and we kind of won.
Tara and Giles: So we sound our vict'ry cheer. Where do we go from here?
Anya and Xander: Why is the path so unclear when we know home is near.
All: Understand we'll go hand in hand, but we'll walk alone in fear.
Giles: Tell me...
All: Where do we go from here? When does the end appear? When do the trumpets cheer? The curtains close on a kiss- God knows we can tell the end is near. Where do we go from here?
coda:Buffy: I touch the fire and it freezes me I look into it and it's black. This isn't real but I just wanna feel.
(overlap)Spike: I died many years ago. You can make me feel.
