    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
