You told me not to drink, Mom
So I had a sprite instead.
The way you said I would,
That I didn't drink and drive,
Though some friends said I should.
And your advice to me was right,
The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.
Sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming,
Mom Something I expected least.
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mom, his voice seems far away.
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.
While he was flying high,
Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.
Tell daddy to be brave,
And when I go to heaven,
Put "Mommy 's Girl" on my grave.
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had, I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom
These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!"
