Simple Plan Untitled Music Video

I remember when I first started driving, my mom showed me this video so that I would never drink and drive.

My uncle was killed by a drunk driver, he was on a motorcycle and even though he was wearing all of the right gear, he died immediately of head trauma. It wouldn’t have happened if the other driver didn’t get behind the wheel drunk. I’d still have my uncle. 

I’ve just been thinking about him today. 

This song and video are really good and it makes me cry when I watch it because it reminds me of him…and I think about how many people die because of this. Every 15 seconds someone is killed in an alcohol-related accident.

I open my eyes
I try to see but I’m blinded by the white light
I can’t remember how
I can’t remember why
I’m lyin’ here tonight
And I can’t stand the pain 
And I can’t make it go away
No I can’t stand the pain

Chorus:
How could this happen to me?
I’ve made my mistakes 
got nowhere to run
the night goes on
as I’m fadin’ away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me?

Everybody’s screamin’
I try to make a sound but no one hears me 
I’m slippin’ off the edge
I’m hangin’ by a thread
I wanna start this over again

So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered
And I can’t explain what happened
And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done
No I can’t

How could this happen to me?
I’ve made my mistakes
got nowhere to run 
the night goes on
As I’m fadin’ away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me?

I’ve made my mistakes
got nowhere to run
the night goes on
as I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me?
