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 didn't 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 part 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 didn't see me, Mom, and now I'm the one who
will pay.
 
I'm lying here dying, Mom. I wish you'd 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, I'll die in a short time.
 
I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn't drink.
 
It was the others, Mom. The others didn't 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.
 
I'm feeling sharp pains now. Pains just like a knife.
 
The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, and I don't think it's
fair.
 
I'm 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 "Daddy's Girl" 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, I'm becoming very scared.
 
Please don't cry for me, Mom. When I needed you, you were
always there.
 
I have one last question, Mom, before I say good-bye.
 
I didn't drink and drive, so why am I the one to die?
