if only they understood

although i was only 5 

i knew what it was to drive 

knew alll about a ride 

which seemed easy 

the hard part was learning dead from alive 

if only they understood... 

at the time i didnt understand 

but even then i knew she was all i had 

I had a mother but not really and you could definitley forget about my dad..

The day it happened i didnt know whether to be be mad or sad i just cried.. 

if only they understood that i'd thought i would never understand.. but now i do 

she was my life and bestfriend 

they might not understand and i might not have understood but ..

i did know that from then on my life was over ...
