Overture/Going Through The Motions



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

I've been making shows of trading blows
Just hoping no one knows
That I've 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 I'm wavering
Crawl it up your grave and find this fight
Just doesn't mean a thing

Demon:
She ain't got that swing

Buffy:
Thanks for noticing

Demons:
She does pretty well
With fiends from hell
But lately we can tell
That she's just going through the motions
Facing it somehow
She's not even half the girl she…ow

Buffy:
Will I stay this way forever
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavour

Rescued Man:
How can I repay?

Buffy:
Whatever
I don't want to be

Going through the motions
Losing all my drive
I can't even see
If this is really me
And I just want to be alive.
