It is on the radio all the time over here.  I was sick of it the first time I heard it and now it is in heavy rotation.


I generally hate songs with social messages.

He preformed at my school last semester. The only good parts of his songs are sung by other people anyways.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.  I don't give a fuck what musicians and actors political beliefs are, unless they try to shove them down your throat.  Every time that shitty song comes on, I immediately turn the station.

Political message aside, I still think that song sucks. It has a horrible tune, horrible chorus, and is nowhere near as catchy as his other songs.

Change the station. Problem solved, rather easily I might add.

View Quote


When I was in the third 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, trippin' "


Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn't she?


Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.


I remember doing the math like, "Yeah, I'm good at little league"


A preconceived idea of what it all meant


For those that liked 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 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





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


She keeps me warm


She keeps me warm


She keeps me warm





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 become so numb to what we're saying


A 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, the complexion of your pigment


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


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 till we're equal, damn right I support it





(I don't know)





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





We press play, don't press pause


Progress, march on


With the veil over our eyes


We turn our back on the cause


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 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... sex





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


She keeps me warm


She keeps me warm


She keeps me warm





Love is patient


Love is kind


Love is patient


Love is kind


(not crying on Sundays)


Love is patient


(not crying on Sundays)


Love is kind


(I'm not crying on Sundays)


Love is patient


(not crying on Sundays)


Love is kind


(I'm not crying on Sundays)


Love is patient


(not crying on Sundays)


Love is kind


(I'm not crying on Sundays)


Love is patient


Love is kind

Yes, it's so horrible that it's actually a ripoff of John Mayer's Waiting on the World to Change which was also well received.  I think you've been outvoted by a few million people.

I guess I should have been more clear about what I meant by the "tune". I should have said that I don't really think the vocals match up very well with the tune and beat

That song has actually got me disliking his other songs.  As soon as I hear his voice I change the channel.  I've heard that song and him enough and don't want to hear him any more.







Plus his lyrics are supposed to invoke sympathy but I think they are rather pathetic.  In fact I'm pretty sure every alcoholic, drug addict, and pedophile has said "And I can't change Even if I tried".  Why would he write lyrics that puts gays in the same group as people who have a "disease"?  I thought they were trying to break out of that stigma and the song actually sets them back.

I'm all for people being happy with who they are and not being persecuted by people who aren't really affected by them, but god damn that song is preachy and annoying. I don't think it would bother me so much if it didn't come off so holier-than-thou. I liked Macklemore for Thrift Shop, but I can't stand him anymore after this one.

I like the song, especially the chorus.  I don't particularly like that it's on the radio...as I don't think all parents want to have to explain "gay" to their 6 year old children.

Change the station I guess
