Be Careful What You Wish For Lyrics

Be Careful What You Wish For - Luke Combs

Written by:Luke Combs/Ray Fulcher/Rob Crosby

 

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
