Intro:
    Eb Cm Ab Eb
    Eb Cm Ab Eb


Eb                           Cm
When I was in the third grade I thought I was gay
           Ab                     Eb
'Cause I could draw, an' my uncle was, and I kept my room straight
Eb            Cm
I told my mom tears rushing down my face
            Ab                      Eb
She's like "Ben you've loved girls since before pre-k," trippin'
Eb                   Cm
Yea I guess she had a point didn't she?
Ab                   Eb
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.
Eb                              Cm
I remember doing the math like, "yea I'm good at little league"
Ab                 Eb
a preconceived idea of what it all meant


-same chord progression as before-

For those that liked the same xxx
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 predisposition
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


Eb          Eb      Eb     Eb      Eb
And I can't change
           Eb     Eb  
Even if I tried
           Ab     Eb
Even if I wanted to
             Eb
I'm acting strange
Eb         Ab
Even if I try
Eb         Eb       Eb  
Even if I wanted to
Ab                     Eb
My love, my love, my love
              Eb    Eb  
She keeps me warm
              Ab   Eb
She keeps me warm
              Eb     Eb  
She keeps me warm
              Ab     Eb
She keeps me warm


Eb           Cm
If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
Cm                         Eb
Have you read the YouTube comments lately
Eb Ebsus4   Eb        Cm
"Man, that's gay" get dropped on the daily
Ab Ab6 Ab7            Eb
We become so numb to what we're saying


          Eb              Cm
a culture founded from oppression, yet we don't have acceptance for 'em
Ab                      Eb
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
Eb                Cm
a word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Ab                            Eb
a gay is synonymous with the lesser
          Eb                     Cm
It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion
Ab                         Eb
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment


-same chord progression as before-

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


               Eb                       Eb                           
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
             Cm                           Cm7   
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
Eb                Gm7
I might not be the same, but that's not important
    Ab                            Eb
No freedom till we're equal, damn right I support it

Interlude -repeat-:
    Eb  Eb  Eb  Eb
    Eb  Eb  Ab  Eb


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


Eb        Cm
And press play, don't press pause
Ab            Eb
Progress, march on
                       Eb
With the veil over our eyes
            Cm
We turn the back on the cause
          Ab                        Eb
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law

When kids are walking 'round 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 is gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever god we believe in
We come from the same one


Eb Gm7
Strip away the fear
          Ab                    Eb
Underneath it's all the same love

About time we raised up


             Eb  Cm Ab Eb
And I can't change
           Eb   Cm
Even if I tried
           Ab     Eb
Even if I wanted to
             Eb
I'm acting strange
Eb        Ab    Eb
Even if I try
          Eb       Cm
Even if I wanted to
Ab
My love, my love, my love


She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm


Eb
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is patient
Love is kind
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is patient
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is kind
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is patient
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is kind
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is patient
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is kind
-I'm not crying on Sundays-
Love is patient
Love is kind
