"Be Careful " as written by and Ray Fulcher Luke Albert Combs....
Couldn't wait to ride out of that one horse town
Didn't see no use in sticking around
I was green and busting at the seams to leave
I was sitting on G, waiting on O
The day I hit eighteen, I hit the road
Traded that county maintain for a four lane city street

But sometimes things ain't what you think they're gonna be
What you want ain't always what you need

Don't know what you got 'til it's gone and you're out on your own
All you want is what you can't get back
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Sometimes what you think you'll find
It ain't quite what real life has in store
So be careful what you wish for

She was holding on just a little too tight
Talked a little too much about the rest of our lives
I broke her heart thinking freedom would set me free
Well sometimes things ain't what you think they're gonna be

Don't know what you got 'til it's gone and you're out on your own
All you want is what you can't get back
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Sometimes what you think you'll find
It ain't quite what real life has in store
So be careful what you wish for

'Cause these city lights can't shine quite like the stars
I wish I could wish her back into my arms

Don't know what you got 'til it's gone And you're out on your own
All you want is what you can't get back
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Sometimes what you think you'll find
It ain't quite what real life has in store
And you can't get her back no more
So be careful what you wish for
Be careful what you wish for
