Be Careful What You Wish For Lyrics

[ Verse 1 ]

So this is it, this is what I’ve wished for
Just isn’t how I invisioned it, fame to the point of imprisonment
I just thought the shit’da be different
But something changed the minute that I got a whiff of it
I started to inhale it, smell it, started sniffing it
And it became my cocaine, I just couldn’t quit
I just wanted a little bit, then it turned me to monster
I became a hypocrite, concert after concert
I was raking in the dough, rolling in green
Had the game hemmed up, like a sewing machine
But I was losing my freedom, there was nowhere for me
To not go and be seen, and just go and be me
And there was no inbetween, you either loved it or hated
Every CD, critics gave it a three, then three
years later, they go back and rerate it
And called The Slim Shady LP the greatest
The Marshall Mathers was a classic
The Eminem Show was fantastic
But Encore just didn’t have the caliber to match it
I guess enough time just ain’t passed yet
A couple more years, that shit’ll be Illmatic
And 8 years later I’m still at it
Divorced, remarried, a felon, a father, sleeping pill addict
And this is real talk, I feel like the Incredible Hulk
My back has been broken, I can still walk

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 2 ]

I got a letter from a fan that said, he’s been praying for me
Everyday and for some reason it’s been weighing on my mind heavy
Cause I don’t read every letter I get
But something told me to go ahead and open it
But, why would someone pray for you when they dont know you
You didn’t pray for me when I was local
And as I lay these vocals, I think of all the shit I had to go through
Just to get to where I’m at, I’ve already told you
At least, a thousand times in these rhymes
I appreciate the prayer, but I’ve already got god on my side
and its been one hell of a ride, hasnt it?
Just watching it, from an opposite’s stand point
Man, boy it’s got to look, nuts
And thats the only word I can think of right now
On how to describe this shit
This is like a vibe you get it, go ahead and vibe to it
Just watch what you wish for, cause I got the shit!

[ Chorus ]
