Lisa Shaffer - Just One Lyrics

(Verse 1)

Crowd gathered 'round a school bus
3rd Street and Elm
The neighbor man said, "officer
I caught it all on film"
I watched my little grandson
Come so close to death
By that man standin' right there
With liquor on his breath'

(Verse 2)

Another boy wasn't so lucky
He was lyin' there in the stree
His lifeless body
Beneath the yellow sheet
While the young man was on the sidewalk
Goin' through a sobriety check
The crowd turnin into a lynch mob
When he raised his hands and said


I only had just one
I swear that's the truth
That kid came out of nowhere
There was nothing I could do
I couldn't swerve I couldn't stop
Now here I am asking GOD
What have I done
I only had just one

(Verse 3)

A young momma burst thru the crowd
Pulled back the yellow shee
Collapsed and started shakin' uncontrollably
Searched until she found that young men
With her shattered eyes
She tore a into his soul

Tag chourus

I only had just one
And you took him away
I hope this is something
You relive everyday
You coulda swerved you coulda stopped
But you didn't, now look, my god
What have you done
I only had just one
I only had just one
