5. Same Love By Macklemore And Ryan Lewis

[Verse 1: Macklemore]When I was in the 3rd gradeI thought that I was gayCause I could draw, my uncle wasAnd I kept my room straightI told my mom, tears rushing down my face

She's like, "Ben you've loved girls since before pre-K"Trippin', yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't sheA bunch of stereotypes all in my headI remember doing the math like"Yeah, I'm good a little league"A pre-conceived idea of what it all meantFor those who like the same sex had the characteristicsThe right-wing conservatives think it's a decisionAnd you can be cured with some treatment and religionMan-made, rewiring of a pre-dispositionPlaying GodAhh nah, here we goAmerica the braveStill fears, what, we don't knowAnd God loves all His childrenIs somehow forgottenBut we paraphrase a book written35 hundred years agoI don't know
[Hook: Mary Lambert]And I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toAnd I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toMy love, my love, my loveShe keeps me warm [x4]
[Verse 2: Macklemore]If I was gayI would think hip-hop hates meHave you read the YouTube comments lately"Man that's gay"Gets dropped on the dailyWe've become so numb to what we're sayin'Our culture founded from oppressionYeah, we don't have acceptance for 'emCall each other faggotsBehind the keys of a message boardA word routed in hateYet our genre still ignores itGay is synonymous with the lesserIt's the same hate that's caused wars from religionGender and skin colorComplexion of your pigmentThe same fight that lead people to walk-outs and sit-insIt's human rights for everybodyThere is no differenceLive on! And be yourself!When I was in churchThey taught me something elseIf you preach hate at the serviceThose words aren't anointed[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/same-love-lyrics-macklemore.html ]And that Holy WaterThat you soak inIs then poisonedWhen everyone elseIs more comfortableRemaining voicelessRather than fighting for humansThat have had their rights stolenI might not be the sameBut that's not importantNo freedom 'til we're equalDamn right I support itI don't know
[Hook: Mary Lambert]And I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toAnd I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toMy love, my love, my loveShe keeps me warm [x4]
[Verse 3: Macklemore]We press playDon't press pauseProgress, march on!With a veil over our eyesWe turn our back on the cause'Till the dayThat my uncles can be united by lawKids are walkin' around the hallwayPlagued by pain in their heartA world so hatefulSomeone would rather dieThan be who they areAnd a certificate on paperIsn't gonna solve it allBut it's a damn good place to startNo law's gonna change usWe have to change usWhatever god you believe inWe come from the same oneStrip away the fearUnderneath it's all the same loveAbout time that we raised up
[Hook: Mary Lambert]And I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toAnd I can't changeEven if I triedEven if I wanted toMy love, my love, my loveShe keeps me warm [x4]
[Outro: Mary Lambert]Love is patient, love is kindLove is patient (not cryin' on Sundays)Love is kind (not crying on Sundays) [x5]
