Latter Days

Elder Aaron Davis: [about him being gay] What if it’s not something I’ve done? What if it’s who I am?

Hymn For All Those Left Behind
from Latter Days Soundtrack

He always gravitates to the minor key(s)
As he navigates his way away from me
He claims a guardian for every sailor in the storm
But where are the patrons for those left on the shore

And as the darkness falls around me
He takes my hand and starts to pray
This is a hymn for all those left behind
This is a prayer for every heart left barren
This is a call for all the saints to be reminded
To sing a hymn for all those left behind

She only dreams in shades of gray these days
Now that her children have all grown
And though her husband sleeps just two feet away
When she wakes she feels alone

And as the dawn comes trough the window
She lies awake, tries to recall
If there’s a hymn for all those left behind
If there’s a prayer for every heart left barren
If there’s a call for all the saints to be reminded
To sing a hymn for all those left behind

If I don’t make it pass the judgement
If they never let me in
Promise me a mention
In that hymn

This is a hymn for all those left behind
This is a prayer for every heart left barren
This is a call for all the saints to be reminded
To sing a hymn for all those left behind

This is a hymn for all those left behind
This is a prayer for every heart left barren
This is a call for all the saints to be reminded
To sing a hymn for all those left behind

Sometimes sadness and pain can feel good. I feel like today is one of those days. I don’t know why. I only have 5 more minutes to feel this way then I have to be back to normal as I won’t be alone at home anymore. Another disadvantage to living with people.
