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
