about

All proceeds made from this song will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.

"The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better."

lyrics

The sun was out, the curtains closed
The door was open
Some extra light came through seems and warmed the room
With folded hands, I whispered soft to the lord, forgive me
For coming home too soon

You say I’m wrong, You say I’m damned
You say I’m different
By the standards set by man some years ago
You have the right to crucify me with a vengeance
You fear what you do not know

I did it all for you, hoping that there might be
Some other side to your heart
Maybe you’d mourn for me
And learn from your guilty burden
Before you close your eyes to sleep, know
I did it all for you
I did it all for you

What would happen if in 15 years you have a family
Your son is born, just like me, 10 fingers and toes
But with the very same shamed, sinful affliction
would you want him to know?

I did it all for you, hoping that there might be
Some other side to your heart
Maybe you’d mourn for me
And learn from your guilty burden
Before you close your eyes to sleep, know
I did it all for you
I did it all for you

It’s not like the pages you read it on black and white
There’s always a different shade of grey
After I shut my eyes
I hope you live better lives
And maybe forgive yourselves someday.
