"Careful What you Wish For" as written by and Eric Bazilian Jonatha Brooke....
When I was a little girl, I had desires like you
One of everything, all the riches
How could I help myself?
I was so naïve, Santa Claus, Christmas eve, ohhh….

Careful what you wish for, careful what you do
Even when you whisper, someone's listening to you
Careful what you wish for, careful what you say
Careful what you wish for, 'cuz it just might come true someday

Now that I have everything
I'm a puppet on a string
Someone's got the end and I'm unraveling
And here's the thing
I would throw it all away
If I could only hear you say,
"Baby I'll stay, baby I'll stay"

First I wished for money and a house on a hill
I had so many friends around me, but which ones were real?
Careful what you wish for, careful what you dream
'Cuz no matter what you wish for, it's never gonna be what you need

Now that I have everything
I'm a puppet on a string
Someone's got the end and I'm unraveling
And here's the thing
I would throw it all away
If I could only hear you say,
"Baby I'll stay, baby I'll stay"

When I was a little girl, I had desires like you
One of everything, all the riches
How could I help myself?
I was so naïve, Santa Claus, Christmas eve, ohhh….

Now that I have everything
I'm a puppet on a string
Someone's got the end and I'm unraveling
And here's the thing
I would throw it all away
If I could only hear you say,
"Baby I'll stay, baby I'll stay"
'Cuz baby you're my everything
I'm a puppet on a string
Someone's got the end and I'm unraveling
And here's the thing
I would throw it all away
If I could only hear you say,
"Baby I'll stay, baby I'll stay"

    General CommentVery Obvious meaning! But love the way she says it all and the words shes using. Careful what you wish you might get it one day, it might not be what you need but it will do and it seems like all u want, but in the end its whats true and real that means most to you and its all the matters. Love, Friendship - Like most songs.
