Careful What You Wish For : Raine Maida

Oh my my
Look what I’ve done
I’m on the run
I’ve gone to California
I kissed you goodbye
with a tear in my eye
I packed up my truck
And went for a drive

These white yellow lines
These angel filled skies
The road might be long
But it’s my road tonight

It’s a Leonard Cohen song
A Buddah/Allah Monk
You can be anything you want
I’m an Italian Catholic punk and I’m on my way
On my way
Oh la la la I’m on my way

The ocean appears
The wind slaps my face
Oh Shangra la
What a beautiful place
I’m nervous but steady
I’m scared but I’m ready
No turning back
3000 miles in a Chevy

And I slam on the brakes
Put my toes in the sand
Look to the consellations
And I throw up my hands

I said
God be my driver
God be my lighter
Nobody ages
I guess nobody dies here

I’ll be careful for what I wish for in this life
Cause I know
I’ll miss yesterday
I’ll come back to you before I’m old and grey
I’ll come home
But it seems so far away

The sky turned red
The ocean pulled away
What the hell’s going on?
How come no one’s afraid?
I said hey Mr Soul
What you got for me?
Well I pulled out my wallet
I know nothing here’s free

And God do you back this?
This town is a black list
Oh boy what a big mess
Even Mickey’s on acid

I’m willing and able
My cards are this fable
Come on, Alice, we’re too good to wait tables

I’ll be careful for what I wish for in this life
Cause I know
I’ll miss yesterday
I’ll come back to you before I’m old and grey
I’ll come home
It seems so far away

Seems so far away
You’re so far away

Oh ohohaoh
and oh ohohaoh
Oh

Oh my my
What have I done?
What have I done?
I went to California
I’m gonna leave California…
