Lyrics – Somebody Else Take the Wheel

Somebody Else Take the Wheel

words and music © 1993, Kate MacColl

Driven by ambition is what people say of me
And that I’ll go far, as far as I want to go
Sometimes I get tired and all I want to do is rest a while and let
Somebody else take the wheel

I met a man last autumn, change of season, change my life, he
Lives the truth that the less you want, the less you need
He took me in, no questions asked, I trusted him and it felt good to let
Somebody else take the wheel….somebody else take the wheel

My mind is quiet, I’m free to watch the fallin’ stars….somebody else take the wheel

Pride has led me to believe I am master of my fate
But something so much higher has a plan for me, so I must
Take a leap of faith and only follow what is in my heart and let
Somebody else take the wheel…
Somebody else take the wheel…
Somebody else take the wheel…
