      About "Same Love (feat. Mary Lambert)"

      Seattle-native rapper Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis collaborate on this piece advocating for same-sex marriage in Washington. "Same Love" is the fourth single hit from the duo's debut album, The Heist. "Same Love" is known predominantly as a far cry from the mainstream commercial tracks that are rehashing old content in the music world. Macklemore further explains that this track came out of his frustration with the then constant homophobia and intolerance in the hip-hop community.

      Lyrics for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Same Love (feat. Mary Lambert)"

      When I was in the 3rd grade I thought that 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 before pre-K"
      Trippin', yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she?
      A bunch of stereotypes all in my head
      I remember doing the math like "Yeah, I'm good a little league"
      A pre-conceived idea of what it all meant
      For those who like the same sex had the characteristics
      The right-wing conservatives think its a decision
      And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
      Man-made, rewiring of a pre-disposition. Playing God
      Ahh nah, 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 3,500 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 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 would think 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 sayin'
      Our culture founded from oppression
      Yeah, we don't have acceptance for 'em
      Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
      A word routed 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 lead 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 in church, they taught me something else
      If you preach hate at the service Those words aren't anointed
      And that Holy Water, that you soak in is then 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 'til 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

      We press play Don't press pause
      Progress, march on!
      With a veil over our eyes
      We turn our back on the cause
      'Till the day That my uncles can be united by law
      Their kids are walkin' 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 solve it all, but it's a damn good place 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 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
      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

      Love is patient, love is kind
      Love is patient
      Love is kind (Not crying on Sundays)
      Love is patient,(Not crying on Sundays) love is kind (I'm not crying on Sundays)
      Love is patient,(Not crying on Sundays) love is kind(I'm not crying on Sundays)
      Love is patient,(Not crying on Sundays) love is kind(I'm not crying on Sundays)
      Love is patient, love is kind
