Same Love- Macklemore and Mary Lambert (revised by Lauren Lowther)
When I was younger I could tell something was different Hated dresses, high heels and my hair always messy While all the girls looked at the boys On the pages in magazines While I was left to wonder Why I’d rather watch them read Pushed it all aside until the age of 18 When I said enough’s enough, I’m done with shame, I’d rather just be me
Cause I can’t change even if I tried Even if I wanted to I’m acting strange Even if I tried, even if i wanted to My love, my love, my love, She keeps me warm
There was a time when I swear that I did try To change myself, push it down and hide it all inside Though this can’t be true, no not me It’s not the way it’s supposed to be It’s just a phase, I can’t be gay They’ll never understand
Who’s gonna stand and tell these kids that nothings wrong That it’s okay to feel this way You’re beautiful and strong Hated still spewed from the keys behind a screen It’s time to stop, make a change We’re not equal until we’re free
You’re beautiful. Your voice is flawless. This brought me to tears. Thank you for doing this cover.
this is actually the best i’ve ever heard this song
