I wish I would’ve spoken up Against the notifications tempting you Or the giggles from the back seat And other distractions we let through I wish I would’ve stopped you When you would glance down at the screen Eager to answer the call or text Whether the light was red or green I wish I would’ve understood That the risk outweighed the thrill Those days of speeding were foolish To end with a hospital bill I wish I would’ve buckled up And that you’d have done the same We wouldn’t have been hurt so bad With only us to blame I wish I would’ve known That we were going to crash that day I wouldn’t have lost my best friend To a corpse with nothing to say
