Tear Drops And Closed Caskets: The Good Die Young


*I went to a party, Mom, I remembered what you said. You told me not to drink and drive, Mom, So I drank sprite instead. *I felt really 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, As everyone drives 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, Mom, So responsible and sweet. *I started to drive away, Mom, But as I pulled onto the road, The other car didn't see me, Mom, And it hit me like a load. *As I lie here 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 come this happened to me, Mom? My life burst like a balloon. *There is blood all around me, Mom, Most of it is mine. I hear the paramedic say, Mom, I'll be dead 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 didn't know where he was going, Mom, He was probably at the same party as I. The only difference is, Mom, He drank, and I will die. *Why do people drink, Mom? It can ruin your whole life. I'm feeling sharp pains now, Mom, Pains just like a knife. *The guy who hit me is walking, Mom, I don't think it's fair. I'm lying here dying, Mom, While all he can do is stare. *Tell my brother not to cry, Mom, 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 only they'd have take the time, Mom, I would still be alive. *My breath is getting shorter, Mom, I'm becoming very scared. Please don't cry for me, Mom, Because when I needed you, you were always there. *I have one last question, Mom, Before I say good-bye. I didn't ever drink, Mom, So why am I to die? *This is the end, Mom, I wish I could look you in the eye. To say these final words, Mom, I love you, and good-bye
