Sometimes-- I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear.

And I can't help but ask myself how much I let the fear take the wheel and steer.



A9                 A7                        A9       A7

It's driven me before and it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal.

A9           A7                       CM7                   A7

But, lately, I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel...



Em    Em9       CM7      Am7     Em     Em9          CM7          Am7

Whatever tomorrow brings I'll be there with open arms and open eyes, yeah.

Em    Em9       CM7      Am7     Em     Em9          CM7   Am7

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there...


So, if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive.

Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive?  Ah, oh, oh!



It's driven me before and it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around.

But, lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found.







CM7        A7               CM7    A7                [n.c. - pick scrape up]

Would you choose water over wine?  Hold the wheel and drive?




OUTRO:  [over "Doo-doo-doo" vocals]
