Macklemore - Same Love

Same Love

When I was in the third grade, I thought I was gay
’Cause I could draw, an’ 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.”
Trippen’. 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 at little league.”
A preconceived idea of what it all meant.
For those that like the same sex
Have the characteristics,
The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion,
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition,
Playing god, aw 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 thirty-five-hundred years ago.
I don’t know.
 
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I try
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
 
If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me.
Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
“Man, that’s gay.” get dropped on the daily.
We become so numb to what we’re saying.
A culture founded from oppression,
Yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em.
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board.
A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it,
And gay is synonymous with the lesser.
It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion,
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment,
The same fight that led 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 anointed.
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.
I don’t know.
 
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
 
And press play, don’t press pause.
Progress, march on.
With the veil over our eyes
We turn our back on the cause.
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
When kids aren’t 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 is gonna change us,
We have to change us.
Whatever god we 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,
The same.
 
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I try
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is patient
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
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
Love is kind

I corrected some mistakes in the original text after all these translations were made, so unless the translators have revised accordingly, you may see a few discrepancies.
