Death of an Innocent

I went to a party mom, I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom, so I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom, the way you said I would.
I didnít drink and drive, Mom, even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom, I know you were always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom ,as everyone is driving out of
sight.

As I got into my car, Mom, but as I pulled out into the road
the other car didnít see me, Mom, and now Iím the one who will pay.

Iím lying here dying, Mom. I wish youíd get here soon.
How cold this happen to me, Mom? My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me, Mom, and most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom, Iíll die in a short time.

I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didnít drink.
It was the others, Mom. The others didnít think.

He was probably as the same party as I.
The only difference is he drank and I will die.

Why do people drink, Mom? It can ruin your whole life.
Iím feeling sharp pains now. Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, and I donít think itís fair.
Iím lying here dying and all he can do is stare.

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom. Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom, put ďDaddyís GirlĒ on my grave.

Someone should have told him, Mom, not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom, I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom, Iím becoming very scared.
Please donít cry for me, Mom.When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question, Mom, before I say good-bye.
I didnít drink and drive, so why am I the one to die?
