• i went to a party
    and remembered what you said
    you said not to drink at all
    so i had a coke instead.

    i felt prud of my self
    the way you said i would
    i did not coose to drink and drive
    though my friends say i should

    i knew i made a healthy choise
    and that your advice was right
    as the party ended
    and the kids drove out of sight
    i got into my own car
    sure to get home in one piece
    never knowing what was coming
    the thing i expected the least

    now i am laying on the pavement
    and can here the policeman say
    "the kid that caused this wreck was drunk"
    his voise seemed far away

    my blood is all around me
    as i try hard not to cry
    i can hear the paramedic saying
    "this girl is going to die"

    i am sure the guy had no idea
    while he was fliing high
    because he chose to drink and drive
    that i would have to die

    so why do people do it?
    knowing it ruins lives

    but now the pain is cutting me
    like a thousand differant knives

    tell my sister not to be afread
    and tell my daddy to be brave
    and when i go to heaven
    put "daddy's girl" on my grave

    some one should have told him
    that it is wrong to drink and drive
    and mabey if his mom and dad had
    i would still be alive

    my breath is getting shorter
    and i am very scared
    these are my final moments
    i am so unprepared

    i wish you could hold me, dad
    as i lay here and die
    i wish i could say i lve you
    i wis i could ay good-buy.
