Verse 1

C                             Fadd9
When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay
               Am                      G
'Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight
C             Fadd9
I told my mom tears rushing down my face
            Am                             G
She's like "Ben you've loved girls since before pre-k tripping, "
C                       Fadd9
Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she?
Am                   G
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.
    C                            Fadd9
I remember doing the math like, "Yeah, I'm good at little league"
  Am                   G
A preconceived idea of what it all meant
For those that liked the same sex
Had the characteristics
    Am                       G
The right wing conservatives think it's a decision
    C                     Fadd9
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Am                     G
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
        C       Fadd9
Playing God, aw nah here we go
Am                      G
America the brave still fears what we don't know
    C                              Fadd9
And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
       Am                        G
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago
C            Fadd9     C
I don't know


C              Fadd9     Am      G
And I can't change
        C         Fadd9
Even if I tried
        Am       G
Even if I wanted to
  C            Fadd9
I can't change
        Am     G
Even if I try
        C        Fadd9
Even if I wanted to
Am                   G
My love, My love, My love
             C    Fadd9
She keeps me warm
             Am G
She keeps me warm
             C    Fadd9
She keeps me warm
             Am G
She keeps me warm

(Follow same chord structure)

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 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



Enjoy :)
