Be Careful What You Wish For CHORDS

INTRO : Am ( 12 Times )

TidAmy your books up

Put them under your bed

And gather your thoughts up

But keep 'em in your head

Be careful what you wish for

Be careful what you dream

They let you sing your songs, son

But they’ll never hear you scream

INSTRU : Am ( 8 Times )

ButtAmon your coat up

Take shelter from the rain

They want you to be like them

But you can never be the same

’Cause you’re standing on the outside

They’ll never let you in

They’ll let you play the game, son

But they’ll never let you win

INSTRU : Am ( 16 Times )

NevAmer let them bare witness

To the tears in your eyes

And never take a handshake

From the prophets and their lies

’Cause they put you in the wrong line

You’ve been crying out for more

They’ve given you the key, son

But you’ll never find the door

INSTRU : Am ( 16 Times )

YouAm’ve fallen like an angel

Stranded on the earth

They let you see their riches

They never tell you what you’re worth

They’ve put you in the back seat

While they’re heading for the sun

And if you’re waiting for the rapture

The day will never come

INSTRU : Am ( 24 Times )

The day will never come...

Be Careful What You Wish For LYRICS
INTRO ( 12 Times )
Tidy your books up
Put them under your bed
And gather your thoughts up
But keep 'em in your head
Be careful what you wish for
Be careful what you dream
They let you sing your songs, son
But they’ll never hear you scream
INSTRU
Button your coat up
Take shelter from the rain
They want you to be like them
But you can never be the same
’Cause you’re standing on the outside
They’ll never let you in
They’ll let you play the game, son
But they’ll never let you win
INSTRU ( 16 Times )
Never let them bare witness
To the tears in your eyes
And never take a handshake
From the prophets and their lies
’Cause they put you in the wrong line
You’ve been crying out for more
They’ve given you the key, son
But you’ll never find the door
INSTRU ( 16 Times )
You’ve fallen like an angel
Stranded on the earth
They let you see their riches
They never tell you what you’re worth
They’ve put you in the back seat
While they’re heading for the sun
And if you’re waiting for the rapture
The day will never come
INSTRU ( 24 Times )
The day will never come...
