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 are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom
As 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 will 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
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 goodbye.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom
So why am I the one to die?
