Drunk Driving

If I knew you were going I would have done a lot more,
but I didn't see until recently and now you've closed the door,
I would have told you that I love 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 it all ended, on this unfaithful day
for you went to a party and you drank and drank and drank.
And you got into a car with some dirty skank.
You turned the key in the ignition, put the pedal to the floor.
You were going to fast, and now you're here no more.
Why did you drink and drive?
Didn't your mother 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 your 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 school I took the long way home,
I walked so slow I just wanted to be alone.
Bad things were running through my mind,
I just couldn't get you out of my head,
Well I thought, this is the end.
I'm so selfish, so unkind.
I took a knife into my room and sild it along my wrists,
got out a photo of you and gave you a kiss.
I laid there for hours, just waiting to die.
My friends were all that I could think of and all could do is cry.
"Oh My God" What have I done I've left everyone!
I tried to sit up, I tried to yell out to but I was too weak, it was too 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.
As my breathing got shorter as I held his picture tight,
and I laid there on my bed and died there that very night.
