lyrics

There’s a lump in my throat from the words that I said
I’m biting my tongue so that I can say less
about what’s really on my mind.
There’s a heart in my hand as I empty my head
like words on a page that I wish you’d have read
cleaning out my old bedroom to find.
And it hurts to know that you’re not on my side.

You might not agree with me,
but I’ve fought hard and my heart’s heavy.
Just know it’s hard to be
singled out by everybody.
So if your god says that we can’t have love like this
then your god doesn’t know what love really is.

There’s a feeling of hope when you see all the flags
marched down the streets by the people in drag
who aren’t ashamed to just feel free.
There’s a pang in my chest ‘cause I feel so at home
knowing that we’re all here and that no-one’s alone
just everybody else and me.
The tide will wash all our worries out to the sea.

You might not agree with me,
but I’ve fought hard and my heart’s heavy.
Just know it’s hard to be
singled out by everybody.
So if your god says that we can’t have love like this
then your god doesn’t know what love really is.

You throw every shot with precision
and blame the things you say on religion
but this isn’t how the world should be
‘cause it’s the god damn 21st century.

You might not agree with me,
but I’ve fought hard and my heart’s heavy.
Just know it’s hard to be
singled out by everybody.
So if your god says that we can’t have love like this
then your god doesn’t know what love really is.
