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
