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
