LYRIC

When I was in the 3rd grade, I thought i was gay cause i could draw,

my uncle was, and I kept my room straight

I told my mom, tears rushin down my face.

She was like "Ben, you've loved girls since before Pre-K"

Trippin, yeah I guess she had a point, didn't she.

Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.

I remember doin the math like "Yeah, I'm good at little league"

A preconceived idea of what it all meant

For those that liked the same sex

Had the characteristics.

The right wing conservatives think it's a decision

And you can e 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

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" gets 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

Gay is synonymous with the lesser

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

Gender to skin color, the complexation of yur pigment

The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins

It's human rights for everybdy 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 remaning viceless

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

And I can't change

Even if i tried

even if i wanted to

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

We press play, don't press pause

Progress march on, with veil over our eyes

We turn our back on the cause,

Till the day that my uncles can be united by law

When kids are walkin 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

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

And I can't change

Even if i tried

even if i wanted to

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
