It's been over a week since the heartbreaking Game of Thrones episode "The Door" aired on HBO. But for some of us, the pain of losing Hodor still feels as fresh as if it happened yesterday. As it turns out, Sam Coleman, the actor behind Young Hodor, is one of those people.

Much like the actor who plays future Hodor — progressive house DJ Kristian Nairn — 19-year-old Coleman is also a musician. Given his recent fame and devastating storyline, the singer-songwriter composed a touching piano ballad about his character's life before he was asked to "hold the door."

Check out his song "Hold The Door" on SoundCloud below:

Not only is the piano composition enchanting, but his insight as an actor clearly shows through in his choice of lyrics. Considering we pretty much only heard Hodor utter the word "Hodor," this song gives fans a deeper understanding of his character.

I was a lonely stable boy
Mucking horses for a living brought no joy
Watching Starks turn into men from boys
I was a lonely stable boy
I was a lonely stable, lonely stable, lonely stable boy
’Til you came along
From the future
You stayed just to tell me, just to look into myself
’Til you came along
And my eyes went white
And my soul caught fire
I saw the blackest night
Where the bodies and the snow and the despair piled higher
Then I was on fire
I only had just one desire
I would follow you until the end of time
Put my life right on the line
Making sure you wouldn't die
But there was one condition
I only had one mission
A simple one, I knew I had to face
When I reached the time and place
Hold the door!
I'll hold the door!
I'll hold the door for you
For you
Hold the door
Hold the door
Hold the door
Hold the door
Holddedoor
Holddedoor
Hoddedoor...
Hodor.
"Hold the door!"
"Hold the door!"

It's almost too heartbreaking to bear! Hearing him sing "Hodor" over and over again is just as haunting as it was on the show. Rest in peace, Hodor — we will never forget you and your sacrifice.
