One Time Acts of Trouble

One time acts of trouble,
Are always on your mind.
Even when we're together,
A wrong doing you will find.

One time in particular,
Always plagues your thoughts.
Reliving that fateful night,
Never fails to tie your stomach into knots.

You promised it would be a night to die for.
How I wish you were wrong.
You told me you'd love me forever,
Which wouldn't be long.

We sat under the stars,
Just sipping red wine.
But when we were driving home,
You kept crossing the yellow line.

I told you to stop playing,
But you said you weren't.
It wasn't long until we crashed.
And my whole body got burnt.

You were okay.
Got out just in time.
You stood there looking at the flames.
I'm sure they were sublime.

You talked to the cops for a short while.
DOA is what they said.
You didn't care what it meant.
You knew that I was dead.

One time acts of trouble,
Are always on your mind.
Even when we're together,
A wrong doing you will find.
