Drunk Driving


If i knew you were going i would've done a lot more,
But i didn't see until recently and now you've closed the door.
I would've told you that i loved you and how i need you so,
To keep my life going, but now you'll never know.
You kept hanging-out with bad people, you were easily slipping away.
And now it all ended, on this unfaithful day.
For you went to a party and you drank and drank and drank
And you got in a car with some dirty skank.
You turned the key to ignition, put the pedal to the floor.
You were going too fast, and now you're here no more.
Why did you drink and drive? Didn't your mum tell you it was bad?
Didn't she tell you that if you did, it would make everyone so sad?
You killed yourself in that stupid car,
And now you're gone, you've gone too far.
For i can't see your lovely smile or your beautiful face,
I can't hear your wonderful voice, i can feel no more grace.

After the funeral i took the long way home,
I walked so slow i just wanted to be alone.
Bad things were running through my head, i couldn't get you out of my mind.
Well i thought this is the end, i'm so selfish so unkind.
I took a knife in my room and slid it along my wrists,
Got out a picture of you and gave you a kiss.
I laid there for hours, waiting to die.
My friends is all i could think of and all i could do is cry.
Oh my god! what have i done? i've left everyone!
I tried to sit up, i tried to yell to mum.
But i was to weak, it was to late
This is the end this is my fate.
I'm sorry mum i'm sorry dad.
Don't be sad, please don't be mad.
My breathing got shorter as i held his picture tight,
And laid there on my bed and died right there that very night.
