My last night


A bad day at work and a drink in my hand
I was anxious to hear tonight's local band.
One drink, two drinks, then came three
The lights and music set me free
The bar lights came on it was time to go home
I downed my beer and grabbed my phone.

Someone shouted, "Are you okay?"
I said, "Yes I'm fine I know my way!"
Behind-the-wheel I took off fast
Between the lines my car didn't last
The cars became mangled against each other
The victims were a daughter, a son, and a single mother

The lights were flashing and sirens ablare
The firefighters used tools to make metal tear
The victims were bloody but will be okay
But for me I won't get another day

The choices we make and the chances we take
Some are good, others tempt fate.
If I would've just called for that ride
This was the day I should've been a bride!
