You were drunk, and I was too,
but I needed you.
I knew I shouldn't call, it was so late,
but I did anyway.
If I had known before that you'd been drinking,
I would've hung up the phone;
but you said you'd pick me up and there's no way I could've known.
When you got to the party, I noticed something wasn't right;
but I was feeling so sick and just wanted to end the night.
I'll always remember that car ride memory,
and I live everyday believing if It hadn't happened you'd still be here.
You were there for me when I needed you until the very end;
and I'm so sorry, so very sorry.
I hope you forgive me, dear friend.
I'd give anything to go back in time and not pick up that phone,
because one slip in the rain,
and you never got to go home.
