Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Same Love lyrics

(feat. Mary Lambert)

[Piano Intro]

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
When I was in the third 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 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, 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

[Hook: Mary Lambert]
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

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
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
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 in 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 ’til we’re equal, damn right I support it

[Trombone Interlude]

[Hook: Mary Lambert]
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

[Verse 3: Macklemore]
We press play, don’t press pause: progress, march on!
With a veil over our eyes, we turn our back on the cause
‘Til the day that my uncles can be united by law
Kids are walking ’round the hallway
Plagued by a 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!

[Hook: Mary Lambert]
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

[Outro: Mary Lambert]
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 (not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
Love is kind

Neck Deep – Don’t Wait (feat. Sam Carter) (The Peace And The Panic Album)

[Verse 1: Ben Barlow]
Disrupted they keep dividing
The government is lying
I’m not going to be a Pharisee of this society
Turn off your TV station
That’s not real information
Trying to define the human mind
It’s like puppetry
And they’ve got you by your strings
Playing God for money
A sorry sad charade
You can see right through it

[Chorus: Ben Barlow]
Don’t wait for anyone
Say it for you
Say it for yourself
What if God was the beggar in disguise?
Would it make any difference?
Would you open your eyes?
Whoa oh, whoa oh

[Verse 2: Ben Barlow]
Suspend your disbelief
Are you paying close attention?
If you blink then you might miss their tricks and their deception
Destruct and disobey their laws
They say cause all the world is dark
And if you choose to read the news
Then you must question everything
And they’ve got you on your knees
They’ve got your milk and honey
And then we put them on the parade
And celebrate what’s coming

[Chorus: Ben Barlow]
Don’t wait for anyone
Say it for you
Say it for yourself
What if God was the beggar in disguise?
Would it make any difference?
Would you open your eyes?
Whoa oh, whoa oh

[Bridge: Sam Carter]
No path
No grave
No justice
No peace
Dig deep, believe
The truth will set you free

No path
No grave
No justice
No peace
Dig deep and see
The government is lying

[Chorus: Ben Barlow & Sam Carter]
Don’t wait, don’t wait for anyone, for anyone
Say it for you
Say it for yourself
Yeah what if God was the beggar in disguise?
Would it make any difference?
Would you open your eyes?

[Bridge: Sam Carter]
No path
No grave
No justice
No peace
Dig deep, believe
The truth will set you free
No path
No grave
No justice
No peace
Would it make any difference?
Would you open your eyes?

Alter Bridge – The Other Side lyrics

Just step into the dark
It’s waiting
Take your vow
It’s time
Time for you to meet your maker
Playing God tonight

You’re insane
Have you gone too far?
Who’s to blame
For what you are?

If you believe yours is the only way
Then you’re the fool who lives to die
Will you deserve the Hell you’re gonna pay?
On The Other Side
Once you reach The Other Side
Once you reach The Other Side

Trigger warm, anticipating
The ritual’s begun
You think that Heaven’s gates are waiting
But only Hell will come

You’re insane
Have you gone too far?
Who’s to blame
For what you are?

If you believe yours is the only way
Then you’re the fool who lives to die
Will you deserve the Hell you’re gonna pay?
On The Other Side
On The Other Side
Once you reach The Other Side

Fade to black
You’ll see in time
You will only be denied.

Fools will only be denied!
There will be no paradise!
Fools will only be denied.
There will be no paradise! yeah

If you believe yours is the only way
Then you’re the fool who lives to die
Will you deserve the Hell you’re gonna pay?
On The Other Side
On The Other Side
Once you reach The Other Side
Once you reach The Other Side

There will be no paradise!
Once You reach The Other Side
There will be no paradise!
Yeah….

Just step into the dark, it’s waiting
Take your vow, it’s time
Time for you to meet your maker

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re insane, have you gone too far
Who’s to blame for what you are
[Chorus]
If you believe yours is the only way
Then you’re a fool who lives to die
Will you deserve the hell you’re gonna pay
On the other side
Once you reach the other side
Once you reach the other side

[Verse 2]
The trigger warm, anticipating
The ritual’s begun
You think that heaven’s gates are waiting
But only hell will come

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re insane, have you gone too far
Who’s to blame for what you are

[Chorus]
If you believe yours is the only way
Then you’re a fool who lives to die

On the other side
On the other side
Once you reach the other side

Fade to black, you’ll see in time
You will only be denied

Fools will only be denied
There will be no paradise
Fools will only be denied
There will be no paradise, yeah

Then you’re a fool who lives to die
Will you deserve the hell you’re gonna pay
On the other side
On the other side
Once you reach the other side

Once you reach the other side
There will be no paradise
Once you reach the other side
There will be no paradise, yeah
