You pressed send and killed my friend
You pressed send and took his life away
If you could send a text message to him in Heaven
Would you send him your apologies today
If you did he would probably laugh and say
Well at least you decided not to drive this time

He would still have a sense of humor
Even if he knew that for every text you sent
He would lose another breath
With every text that you sent was another letter
That spelled his death

You pressed send and killed my friend
You pressed send and took his life away
If you could send a text message to him in Heaven
Would you send him your apologies today
If you did he would probably laugh and say
Well at least you decided not to drive this time

What was so important that it couldn't wait
I know you wish you could take it back
But you can't because its too late
Things will never be the same
He was killed by you and he didn't even know your name
Even if he knew I know that he wouldn't care
He would forgive you but to me that would not be fair
But that is the kind of person that he was
And sadly that he isn't anymore
Because you decided to press send
His death is the beginning of your life
And it has no end
The guilt you will feel has no end

You pressed send and killed my friend
You pressed send and took his life away
If you could send a text message to him in Heaven
Would you send him your apologies today
If you did he would probably laugh and say
Well at least you decided not to drive this time

You pressed send and killed my friend
You pressed send and took his life away
If you could send a text message to him in Heaven
Would you send him your apologies today
If you did he would probably laugh and say
Well at least you decided not to drive this time

You being taken to prison
Won't reverse that collision
That killed my friend
It won't reverse the messages
You decided to send
You saying sorry
Won't bring him back to me
But I know that I have to move on
That is what he would want for me
This is a lesson for you to learn
I hope that your dreams his memory will burn
And burn
And burn
And burn
Until the pain I feel turns to ashes.

About a friend of mine who died from someone who was texting and driving. I hope people will understand the hurt that I felt at the time of the accident and I hope that will strengthen their resolve to never text while they drive. He was only 19 years old.
