I Went to a Party, Mom

I Went to a Party, Mom  – DEATH OF AN INNOCENT

I Went to a Party Mom

I went to a party, Mom
I remeber what you said
You told me not to drink, Mom
So I drank soda instead

I felt really good inside, Mom
The way you said I would
I didn’t drink and drive, Mom
Though others said I should

I know I did the right thing, Mom
I know you’re always right
Now the party is over
As everyone drives out of sight

As I got into my car, Mom
I know I’d get home in one piece
Because of the way you raised me, Mom
So responsible and sweet

I started to drive away, Mom
I pulled onto the road
The other car didn’t see me, Mom
It hit me like a toad

As I lay here on the pavement, Mom
I hear the policeman say
The other guy was drunk, Mom
And now I’m the one who has to pay

There is blood all around me, Mom
And most of it is mine
I hear the paramedic say, Mom
I’ll die in a very short time

I’m lying here dying, Mom
I wish you could get here soon
How come this happened to me, Mom?
My life burst like a balloon

I just wanted to tell you, Mom
I swear I didn’t drink
It was the others, Mom
The others didn’t think

He probably didn’t know where he was going, Mom
He was probably at the same party as mine
The only difference is, Mom
He drank and I will die

Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your life
I’m feeling sharp pains now, Mom
Pains just like a knife

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom
And I don’t think that’s fair
I’m lying here dying, Mom
While all he can do is stare

Tell sister/brother not to cry
Tell daddy to be brave
And when I get to heaven, Mom
Write “Daddy’s Girl” on my grave

Someone should have told him, Mom
Not to drink and drive
If they would have taken the time, Mom
I would still be alive

Because when in need–you were always there
My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I’m becoming very scared
Please don’t cry for me, Mom

I have one more question, Mom
Before I say good bye
I didn’t drink and drive, Mom
So why am I to die?

This is the end, Mom
I wish I could look you in the eye
And say these final words to you, Mom
I love you and good-bye
