Careful What You Wish For Lyrics
'Cause you just might get it
And if you get it then you just might not know
What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
Come back on you ten-fold

Careful What You Wish For song, you'll get the lyrics. It seems you are the same guy who shared about your girlfriend on the song The Reason.... If you can't compromise, be honest with her. Praying for a good man, is not wishing for a man who thinks He is a God. No one wishes for a lifetime of misery! Not all are numb! Hope you'll girlfriend accepts and loves you as you are. Peace

It's just like be careful what you pray for. If you pray too hard for a good man you might get one whom thinks he is God. Wishing like praying might get you more misery than pleasure!!!

it just means that he always wished for the fame he know has but he had to sold his soul for it.

So the song starts with some actual news reports talking about the fatalities and the injuries that some people close to Eminem has like Obie who got shot on the head and Proof that got killed (from D12). Later on his song he mentions that he wanted to become famous but not as much that his life would be in danger and this is connected also with the fact that he has to dedicate so much time on his job; "This is what I wished for just isn't how I envisioned it, fame to the point of imprisonment...". Furthermore the most simple message of this song is that you don't always know what's right for you and often what you think is right might as well be your destruction.
