Careful What You Wish For

Words and Music: Tony Marrison

 

V1

Be careful what you wish for
You just might get it
My heart is an ocean
Filled with love's dark mystery

You say you really want me
But you'll regret it
Like a candle to the sun
You'll lose yourself in me

 

Chorus 1

Save yourself
It may already be too late
Spare yourself
This cold ineluctable fate

 

Chorus 2

Save Yourself
Bones of wood, paper skin
And your blood gasoline
And my eyes are the flint
Just one spark and you'll burst into flame

Spare Yourself
Though you're looking at me
You don't see
Your heart is an open book
And I'll tear out every page

 

V2

Be careful what you wish for
You just might get it
I am Medusa
Come too close and I'll turn you to stone

You say you really want me
But you'll regret it.
Your heart is an open book
And you'll write my name
Again and again
And again and again
And again

 

Outro

Look at me and despair
Look on me and despair
Love me and despair
