Macklemore - Same Love

When I was in the 3rd grade, I thought that I was gay
Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.
I told my ma. Tears rushing down my face
She's like "Benn you've loved girls since before pre-k"
Tripping, yeah I guess she had a point, didn't she
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head
I remember doing the math like "Yeah,
I'm good in little league" A pre-convceived idea of what it all meant.
For those that like the same sex, have the characteristics
The right-wing conservators think it's a decision,
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion.
Man-made rewiring of a pre-disposition.
Playing God. Ah na, here we go
America, the brave, still fears what we don't know.
And God loves all his children, and somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written 35 hundred years ago.

Buh Bah, Buh Bah, And I can't change,
Even if I try. Even if I wanted to.
And I can't change. Even if I tried,
Even if I wanted to.
My love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm (4x)

If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me.
Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
"Man, that's gay", gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we're saying.
A culture founded from oppression.
Yeah, we don't have acceptance for them
Call each other faggots, behind the keys of a message board.
A word routed in hate, yet our genre still ignores it.
Gay is anonymus with the lesser.
It's the same that caused war from religion.
Gender to skin colour, the complexion of your pigment.
The same fight that let people to walk-outs and sit-ins.
It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference.
Live on! And be yourself!
When I was at church, they taught me something else.
If you preach hate at the service, those words aren't annointed.
That holy water, that you soak in has been poisoned.
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless.
Rather than fighting for humans, that have had their rights stolen.
I might not be the same, but that's not important.
No freedom till we're equal.
Damn right I support it.

Buh Bah, Buh Bah, And I can't change,
Even if I try. Even if I wanted to.
And I can't change. Even if I tried,
Even if I wanted to.
My love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm (4x)

We press play. Don't press pause.
Progress, march on. With the vail over our eyes.
We turn back on the cause
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
When kids are walking round the hallway,
Plagued by pain in their heart.
A World so hateful. Some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper, isn't gonna solve it all,
but it's a damn good place to start.
No law's gonna change us, We have to change us.
Whatever God you believe in, we come from the same one.
Strip away the fear. Underneath it's all the same love
About the time that we raised up... the same

Buh Bah, Buh Bah, And I can't change,
Even if I try. Even if I wanted to.
And I can't change. Even if I tried,
Even if I wanted to.
My love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm (4x)

Love is patient, Love is kind
Love is patient, love is kind
(Not crying on sundays)
Love is patient
(Not crying on sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is patient
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is patient
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is patient
(I'm not crying on sundays)
Love is kind



Love is kind
