"Cloudy Skies" as written by Whitfield Crane and Dave Fortman....
Well, they keep on taking my heart
And they keep on taking my soul
They keep taking an inch when I give them a mile
And now it seems it's been a while since anyone smiled
They don't know me
They don't know me
But my name is on the highway sign, never look behind
All those troubles are gone, nothing left but to run
So meet me down and don't be shy
A place where we can hide
There ain't nothing to fear
There ain't no-one back here
But you and I and these cloudy skies
So it's time to leave our home
And see the faces we've out-grown
Through the years we've kept our backs to the wind
So long, farewell, good-bye my friend

    General Commentgreat... one of my childhood's fave bands
    not sure about these lyrics, though, Whit's singing is not always easy to make out
    basically I think lots of the lyrics to UKJ songs are just stuff they came up with that happened to sound good, and they just didn't give a f**k
    My take is:

    "Not seen, it’s been a while, since ..." -> "Now it seems it's been a while..."
    "There ain’t nothing to hear" -> "There ain’t nothing to fear"
    "And see the passes we’ve outgrown" -> "And see the faces we’ve outgrown"

    also... "clouded skies"?!? how about "cloudy skies"....? hence the title.... :-P
