Same Love



When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gayCause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straightI told my mom tears rushing down my faceShes like Ben you've loved girls since before pre-k tripping,Yeah, I guess she had a point, didnt she?Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.I remember doing the math like, Yeah, Im good at little leagueA preconceived idea of what it all meantFor those that liked the same sexHad the characteristicsThe right wing conservatives think its a decisionAnd you can be cured with some treatment and religionMan made rewiring of a predispositionPlaying god, aw nah here we goAmerica the brave still fears what we dont knowAnd god loves all his children, is somehow forgottenBut we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years agoI dont know
And I cant changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toI can't changeEven if I tryEven if I wanted toMy loveMy loveMy loveShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warm
If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates meHave you read the YouTube comments lately"Man, thats gay" gets dropped on the dailyWe become so numb to what were sayingA culture founded from oppressionYet we dont have acceptance for emCall each other faggots behind the keys of a message boardA word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores itGay is synonymous with the lesserIts the same hate thats caused wars from religionGender to skin color, the complexion of your pigmentThe same fight that led people to walk outs and sit insIts human rights for everybody, there is no difference!Live on and be yourselfWhen I was at church they taught me something elseIf you preach hate at the service those words arent anointedThat holy water that you soak in has been poisonedWhen everyone else is more comfortable remaining voicelessRather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolenI might not be the same, but thats not importantNo freedom till were equal, damn right I support it
And I cant changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toMy loveMy loveMy loveShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warm
We press play, dont press pauseProgress, march onWith the veil over our eyesWe turn our back on the causeTill the day that my uncles can be united by lawWhen kids are walking round the hallway plagued by pain in their heartA world so hateful some would rather die than be who they areAnd a certificate on paper isnt gonna solve it allBut its a damn good place to startNo law is gonna change usWe have to change usWhatever god you believe inWe come from the same oneStrip away the fearUnderneath its all the same loveAbout time that we raised up
And I cant changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toI can't changeEven if I tryEven if I wanted toMy loveMy loveMy loveShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmShe keeps me warmLove is patientLove is kindLove is patientLove is kind(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is patient(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is kind(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is patient(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is kind(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is patient(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is kind(Im not crying on Sundays)Love is patientLove is kind
