 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 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 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?
