I went to a party
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink Edward
so I had a sprite instead.
I felt proud of myself
The way you said I would
That I didn't drink and drive
Though some friends said I should.
I made a healthy choice
And your advice to me was right.
The party finally ended
And the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my car
Sure to get home in one piece
I never knew what was coming Edward, something I expected least.
Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear a policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Edward, his voice seems far away.
My own blood's all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.
I'm sure Mike had no idea,
While he was flying high.
Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.
So why do people do it, Edward
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.
Tell our siblings not to be afraid, Edward
Tell Carlisle and Esme to be brave.
And when I go to heaven,
Put 'Esme's Girl' on my grave.
Someone should have told him,
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter,
Edward I'm getting really scared
These are my final moments,
And you're not here.
I wish that you could hold me Edward,
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say, 'I love you Edward!'
So I love you and goodbye.
