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 didnt drink and drive,mom,even though the others said i should.

i know i did the right thing,mom,i know you are always right,

now the party is finally ending,mom,as everyone is driving out of sight,

as i got into my car,mom,i knew i'd get home in one piece,

because of the way you raised me,so responsible and sweet.

i started to drive away,mom,but as i pulled into the road,

the other car didnt see me,mom,and hit me like a load,

as i lay there on the pavement,mom,i hear the policeman say,

the other guy is drunk,mom,and now im the one who will pay.

im lying here dying,mom,i wish you'd get here soon,

how could 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 didnt drink,

it was the others,mom,the others didnt think,

he was probably at 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,

im feeling sharp pains now,pains just like a knife,

the guy who hit me is walking,mom,and i dint think its fair,

im lying here dying and all he can do is stare.

tell my brother not to cry,mom,tell dady 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,im becoming very scared,

please dont cry for me,mom,when i needed you,you were always there,

i have one last question,mom,before i say good-bye,

i didnt drink and drive,so why am i the one to die??
