Can't Remember Summer
There's a factory standing empty Where we built your Chevrolet And we sent our kids to college On a forty hour wage But now the windows all are broken There's graffiti on the walls And the kids came home from college And took a job down at the mall And the winter is getting longer And this town is frozen now And I can't remember summer It feels like spring may never come There's a half full whiskey bottle On the table by my bed And there's a hollow in the pillow Where she used to lay her head And all the dreams and all the memories Faded pictures and crooked frames Hang in silence down the hallway In the chill of what remains Now the winter is getting colder And my heart is frozen now And I can't remember summer It feels like spring may never come Shades of hopeless on the faces Of the souls who stand in light And Holy Jesus hangs on crosses And I hear Mother Mary crying Halleluiah, halleluiah Soon it all will disappear Buried under the snows of winter Just like we all were never here
