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`re always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom, and 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 out into the road,
the other car didn`t 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 I`m the one who`ll pay.
I`m 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 didn`t drink.
It was the others, Mom. The others didn`t think.
He was probably at the same party as I,
Mom, 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, why am I the one to die?
