...making shows of trading blows...

She ain't got that swing!

...fiends from hell...


How can I repay -


The THEME and opening credits are stylized to suit the musical.  During the instrumental OVERTURE the Scoobies cheerily go about their daily lives.  Buffy, however, seems unenthusiastic and detached. She sings her feelings as she patrols the graveyard, routinely fighting demons.

Every single night
The same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight
Still I always feel
This 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...


I was always brave
And kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering
Crawl out of your grave
You find this fight just
Doesn't mean a thing


She ain't got that swing
(He knocks Buffy to the ground)

BUFFY Thanks for noticing



She does pretty well
With fiends from hell
But lately we can tell
That she's just

(Buffy beats the vampires and stabs the goat demon as they sing)
Going through the motions
Faking it somehow
She's not even half the girl she -
(Delayed reaction) Oww!

BUFFY Will I stay this way forever?
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavor?
(She cuts a captive man free)
MAN How can I repay y-

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 wanna be...
