Written on a hot, still afternoon on Topsail Island, North Carolina.

Lyrics

Be Careful What You Wish For It’s a humid heat that gathers in the middle of the day And the breeze dies down to nothing, hear the rumble far away Clouds build up higher; maybe a storm will clear things out Be careful what you wish for; it just might come about Be careful what you wish for; be careful what you say For if it really happens, you might regret someday Some things are best in dreamland; out here they’d just wear out Be careful what you wish for; it just might come about I went sailing as a youngster all the summer everyday The action at the waterline pushing up the spray And the clanging of my halyard; wish I could still hear those sounds Be careful what you wish for; it just might come about Shorebirds and the terns fly, pelicans and gulls I wish that I could follow them as the sunset fades to dull To the south end of the island to wait the long night out Be careful what you wish for; it just might come about
