Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

When I was in the third grade
I thought (1)________ 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 (2)____________ pre-K
Tripping
Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she
A (3)__________ 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 that like the same sex
Had 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 pre-disposition
Playing God

Oh no, here we go
America the brave
Still fears what we don't know
And God loves all his children
It's 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 (4)____________ 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
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

If I was gay
I (5)__________ (6)__________ 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 saying
Our culture founded from oppression
Yet we don't have acceptance for them
Call (7)________ other faggots
Behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate
Yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous (8)________ the lesser

It's the (9)________ hate that's caused (10)________ (11)________ religion
Gender to skin color
A complexion of your pigment
The same fight (12)________ led people to walk-outs and sit-ins
There'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 (13)________ Holy Water
That you soak in is then poisoned
When everyone else is more comfortable
Remaining voiceless (14)____________ than fighting for humans
That have had their (15)____________ 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 (16)__________ 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 a veil over our eyes
We turn our (17)________ on the cause
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
Kids are walking around 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 (18)__________ it all
But it's a (19)________ good (20)__________ to start

No law's gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever god you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip (21)________ the fear
Underneath it's all the (22)________ love
About time (23)________ we raised up
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 (24)__________ 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
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
Love is (25)______________ (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not (26)____________ on Sundays)
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
