Calm after the storm    (video)

 

    G ~

 

       G                                            Em

1. Driving in a fast lane, counting mile marker signs,

           C                                   G

    the empty seat beside me keeps you on my mind.

     G                                                Em

    Living in a heartache was never something I pursued,

   C                                         G

    I can't keep on chasing what I can be for you.

 

  G                                     Em

Ooh, skies are black and blue,

                          C                     G

thinking about you here in the calm after the storm.

 

       G                            Em

2. Tears on a highway, water in my eyes

            C                                                 G

    this rain ain't gonna change us, so what's the use to cry.

   G                                  Em

    I can say I'm sorry, but I don't wanna lie,

               C                                    G

    I just wanna know if staying is better than goodbye.

 

  G                                     Em

Ooh, skies are black and blue,

                          C                     G

thinking about you here in the calm after the storm.

  G                                               Em

Ooh, after all that we've been through

                              C                       G

there ain't nothin' new here in the calm after the storm.

 

+  G - Em - C - G

 

       G                             Em

+  Maybe I can find you down this broken line,

       C                                      G      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    maybe you can find me, I guess we'll know in time. - - -

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  G                                     Em

Ooh, skies are black and blue,

                          C                     G

thinking about you here in the calm after the storm.

                               C                       G

There ain't nothin new, here in the calm after the storm.
