  • Driving in a fast lane
    Counting mile marker signs
    The empty seat beside me
    Keeps you on my mind

    Livin' in the heartache
    Was never something I pursued
    I can't keep on chasing
    What I can't be for you

    Ooh skies are black and blue
    I'm thinking about you
    Here in the calm after the storm

    Tears on the highway
    Water in my eyes
    This rain ain't gonna change us
    So what's the use to cry?

    I could say I'm sorry
    But I don't wanna lie
    I just wanna know if staying
    Is better than goodbye

    Ooh skies are black and blue
    I'm thinking about you
    Here in the calm after the storm

    Ooh after all that we've been through
    There ain't nothing new
    Here in the calm after the storm

    Maybe I can find you
    Down this broken line
    Maybe you can find me
    I guess we'll know in time

    Ooh skies are black and blue
    I'm thinking about you
    Here in the calm after the storm

    Ooh after all that we've been through
    There ain't nothing new
    Here in the calm after the storm

    There ain't nothing new
    Here in the calm after the storm Writer/s: Ilse Annoeska de Lange, Jake Etheridge, Jan B. Meyers, Matthew Crosby, Rob Crosby Hoar
