"Careful What You Wish For" as written by and Dave Brian Geraghty Dominic Michael Phillips....
It's coming faster now
And I never thought I'd be here
Running past you now
But you're holding out on me

Strip of lace on your collar bone
I think I caught you catching me
I space off

Is there is a time for us?
Or will we just hold on quietly,
White knuckles and dry tears?
And play our part in this
No spoiler, no reveal

Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
'Cause these bulbs are the fluorescent kind
And no one looks good in this light

The crack is wide enough, already
Any more would be too bright,
To keep this alive
Yeah this sweet dull ache
In the shadow and half light

Careful what you wish for
Careful what you wish for
'Cause these bulbs are the fluorescent kind
And no one looks good in this light

Careful what you wish for.
Careful what you wish for.
'Cause these bulbs are the fluorescent kind
And no one looks good in this light

    General CommentThe lines
    "The crack is wide enough, already
    Any more would be too bright," remind me of Kavanaghs Advent poem. "Through a chink too wide there comes no wonder"
    and I think it's the same sentiment, albeit in different circumstances.
    Keep the mystery in your relationship as long as you can - you won't get it back!

    General CommentThey've stated in concert that its about an affair. I imagine the song is directed at the affair partner, but I could be wrong here.
