I had a few drinks, on that late night;
Can I call you a cab? asked the bartender.
No, I said, Im not drunk, not quite.
I stumbled out the door and hopped in my car,
I swerved on the freeway, away from the bar.
You entered the freeway toward home from a friends,
Carefully driving in that lovely Benz.
I didnt see it coming. I should have seen it there,
The path that was before me was no longer there.
I weaved in and out of all of the lanes,
I lost all my judgment, then the silence came.
My life changed in an instant, and your life was gone,
I knew it was over, It didnt take long.
I was rushed to the hospital and it became clear,
I laid in the ambulance and started to tear.
Where did my life go? I couldnt tell,
I decided that night that I would not dwell.
So I stand here before you on this clear day,
Id like to trade places, I wish there was a way.
I wish you could walk, I wish you could smile,
I wish you could be here and give birth to your child.
Your life was taken by my mistake,
When I think of you, I start to ache.
I have remorse for what Ive done,
Ive been to A.A. meetings, I havent missed one.
I dont live for myself. I live in your place,
I stand here now only by Gods grace.
Why it was you, I dont know,
Im sorry for that night, Im sorry for tomorrow,
But most of all, Im sorry for the sorrow.
I will think of you each and every day,
I guess Im sorry is all I wanted to say.
