Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Same Love

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Same Love

Same Love (en français : Même amour) est un single musical de Macklemore et Ryan Lewis featuring Mary Lambert sorti en 2012. Le single est le quatrième extrait de l'album The Heist. La chanson est sortie en soutient de la proposition de référendum 74 dans l'État de Washington sur le mariage entre personnes de même sexe.

 

 

La chanson est plutôt bien accueillie par la critique musicale qui souligne son côté engagé pour les homosexuels et le mariage entre personnes de même sexe en défiant le statut quo du hip-hop.

 

[Piano Intro]

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
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

Tripping 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

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 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 [x4]


[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 saying
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
Complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk-outs and sit-ins
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


[Trombone]
I don't know

[Hook]

[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

'Till the day
That my uncles can be united by law

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


[Hook]

[Outro: Mary Lambert]
Love is patient, love is kind
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 (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)
