chimneys smoke when winter comes
they say each year they’ll quit
but everyone knows how hard it is
when the sun’s all hid behind those clouds
birds all flying south
and that first snow covers up the ground

i startled you down by the water
did you know i was startled too

streetlights change when nighttime comes
they turn themselves to light
because everyone knows how dark it gets
but who will be a light to them
and how can they shine as bright
when the darkness seems so heavy now

i may never live to forget some of these memories
dear caught in headlights thrown in the air on the roadside
alive then suddenly so dead
