Same Love by Macklemore And Ryan Lewis


[Piano Intro]

 

[Verse 1: Macklemore]

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 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 she

A bunch of stereotypes all in my head

I remember doing the math like

"Yeah I'm good at little league"

A pre-conceived idea of what it all meant

For those who like the same sex had the characteristics

The right-wing conservatives think its a decision

And you can be cured with some treatment and religion

Man-made rewiring of a predisposition

Playing God

Ahh nah here we go

America the brave

Still fears what we don't know

And God loves all His children

Is somehow forgotten

But we paraphrase a book written

35 hundred years ago

I don't know

 

[Hook: Mary Lambert]

And I can't change

Even if I tried

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 [x4]

 

[Verse 2: Macklemore]

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've become so numb to what we're sayin'

Our culture founded from oppression

Yeah we don't have acceptance for 'em

Call each other faggots

Behind the keys of a message board

A word routed in hate

Yet our genre still ignores it

Gay is synonymous with the lesser

It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion

Gender and skin color

Complexion of your pigment

The same fight that lead 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 in church

They taught me something else

If you preach hate at the service

Those words aren't anointed

And that Holy Water

That you soak in

Is then 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 'til we're equal

Damn right I support it

I don't know

[Hook: Mary Lambert]

And I can't change

Even if I tried

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 [x4]

 

[Verse 3: Macklemore]

We press play

Don't press pause

Progress march on!

With a veil over our eyes

We turn our back on the cause

'Till the day

That my uncles can be united by law

Kids are walkin' around the hallway

Plagued by pain in their heart

A world so hateful

Someone 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 startXX

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 time that we raised up

 

[Hook: Mary Lambert]

And I can't change

Even if I tried

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 [x4]

 

[Outro: Mary Lambert]

Love is patient love is kind

Love is patient (not cryin' on Sundays)

Love is kind (not crying on Sundays) [x5]
