Hi Mom, I'm really scared
now, but I have to.
At Age 13, my mother
I wasn't straight. She didn't understand it but she had so to say. She sat me on the couch and looked me in my face, And said "You'll in hell or probably die of AIDS." funny now but at 13 it was pain, To be almost of who you are and have it ripped away, And I'm sorry if it's too for some of you to fathom, But hate for who you love isn't exactly you'd imagine. Oh, and I guess it was everything that happened afterwards was just madness. Locked for 2 years to keep me on the inside Because she'd rather see a part of me die me thrive. And it's when it's something you can't deny, And ignorance teaches us it's something you decide You're by your choices, an optical illusion, Here's to understanding it's not confusion. 'Cause,
And I can't change,
if I tried, even if I to, and I can't change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, my love, my love, my she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm.
the halls of my school and I've seen kids hide Behind walls and footballs and like pride, seen innocent children suffer beneath bruises, Suffer beneath every hand that chooses, Ignorance, your religion, fuck constitutions, fuck superstitions, There are no of fire here, we're here on earth, And the thing to do is, put love first, And so I stand, for the boy who, by his hand, To the sound of his father screaming "woman man, is Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." And I stand for the girl with the, up her sleeve. And her, in her hand, and a, chip on her shoulder. And I stand for it all ignorance is over. is for you. For knowing who you are. For never letting magic, outside of your heart. Be you, be brave, And understand things do change. I you for you, When I understand. And I you for you, Cause is who I am I you for you, When I understand, Now me for me, this is who I am
change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, and I can't change, if I tried, 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.
to the people who just don't get it. is love, there is no difference. Not a medication to fix it, is no prescription. No rehab to visit, it is not an addiction. love. And selfless, it's yours, and everybody else's, So badger and abuse, the solemnly defenseless. See us as there's no equality or difference. Until we all get it, we'll be drowning in the blood Despite orientation, we all the same love, We'll be drowning in the same orientation, we all feel the same love.
change, even if I tried, if I wanted to, and I can't change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, my love, my love, my she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm.
in and labeled, Before we're ever able to speak who we we are Or who we dream we'll become, like drumbeats forever their rhythm I am today as someone I had not yet become yesterday, And tonight only borrow pieces of who I am today to carry with me, to tomorrow. No I'm not gay. No I'm not straight. And I sure as am not bisexual. I am whoever I am when I am it. Loving whoever you are when the shine, And you'll be when the sun rise. So to being able. to love. Here's to loving, because. to acceptance. Here's to never fearing the of rejection. Here's to love and never who it is you feel you are. Here's to bullies 'cause cannot last forever. Here's to the moment you realize things do get better. Here's to the parents who will get it it's too late. Here's to chances, Here's to new Here's to single moment you've ever had to hide you, Here's to the single star shining inside you, asking you to guide you. Here's to who be when you figure it all out. to momentary doubt. Here's to feeling, we all feel it the same. Here's to the moment that things change.
Cause we all feel love, we all
it the same. to love. to change.
