I could of saved a life that day

But i chose to look the other way

It wasnt that i didnt care.

I had time, and i was there!

 

But i didnt want to seem a fool

Or argue over safety rule.

I knew he’d done the job before

If i spoke up he might get sore.

 

The chance didnt seem that bad

Id done the same, he knew i had

So i shook my head and walked by:

He knew the risks as well as I.

 

He took the chance, i closed my eyes,

And with that act, i let him die

I could of saved a life that day

But i chse to look the other way.

 

Now every time i see his wife,

I know i should of saved his life

That guilt is something i must bear,

But isnt something you need share.

 

If you see a risk that others take

That puts their health or life at stake

The question asked or thing you say

Could help them live another day.

 

If you see a risk and walk away,

Then hope you never have to say

“i could of saved a life that day,

But chose to look the other way”.
