Song Description

This is about the loss of a loved one and facing the nights alone in an empty house.

Story Behind the Song

My wife had very major surgery and I was told at the hospital that I might as well go home for the night because she wouldn't be awake for hours, so I did. When I got home, not knowing if she would ever step foot in the house again, the line hit me "It's a cold lonely house without you---No one dare even call this a home" For some reason, that line stuck in my head for over a year, so I knew I had to do something with it. Although she survived, I came up with a different scenario and finished this song.

Well-sung, gorgeous throwback country ballad about the heartache of a lonely house, sung with conviction and written with a storytelling heart.

Lyrics

All of your pictures still hang on these walls.
I doubt if they'll ever come down.
I've turned up the heat in all of these halls
But there's just no warmth to be found.

And in every room I enter
There's something that puts me in mind
Of something you did or something you said
Which once again leads me to find:

That it's a cold lonely house without you
No one dare even call this a home.
'Cause though the structure is sound
It all crashes down
When I face these nights on my own.

All these colors have faded-faded to gray
Matching the darkness and gloom.
The hours and minutes just saunter away
And chill every inch of this room.

And all I can do is wonder
'Cause I don't know what we might find.
But somehow, somewhere will we meet again
Or is this the end of that line?

It's a cold lonely house without you
No one dare even call this a home
'Cause though the structure is sound
It all crashes down
When I face these nights on my own.

They say all that happens is part of the plan
And I know they did all they could do
But small consolation is that to a man
Who feels like his whole world is through.

It's a cold lonely house without you.
No one dare even call this a home.
'Cause though the structure is sound
It all crashes down
When I face these nights without you.
