'Think before you do', with that you can save lives. Just keep that in mind.
I went to a party mum,
I remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink,
Mum, so I drank soda instead.
I really felt proud inside, mum.
The way you said I would.
I didn’t drink and drive mum.
Even though the others said I should.
I know you were always right.
Now the party is finally ending mum,
Everyone is driving out of sight,
As I got into my car, mum.
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 mum.
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other guy didn’t see me mum.
And hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement mum.
I hear the police man say.
'The other guy is drunk' mum,
And now I am the one who will pay.
I’m laying here dying mum...
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me mum?
My life just burst like a balloon.
There is blood all around me mum.
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, mum,
I’ll die in a short time.
I just wanted to tell you, mum.
I swear I didn’t drink.
It was the others mum.
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 mum?
It can ruin your whole life.
I’m feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is walking mum.
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 mum.
Tell daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven mum,
Put 'GOOD BOY' on my grave.
Someone should have told him mum.
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him mum.
I would still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter mum.
I’m becoming very scared.
Please don’t cry for me mum.
When I needed you, you were always there.
I have got one last question mum.
Before I say goodbye,
I didn’t drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?
How would you feel if you took someone’s life?
