Turn It On #66: Same Love

Hola hola mis amores (? ¿Cómo andan? Yo, con un poco de suerte, despertando de la celebración de ayer (cosa que no puedo saber, porque esta entrada está programada), y con menos suerte, quizás aún durmiendo, who knows.
Hoy les traje una canción que me encanta y que necesito que todos escuchen y amen. Gracias.

Nombre: Same Love
Artista: Macklemore
Lo que me gusta: La voz de Macklemore, que es como rasposa, y sobretodo, sobretodo la letra.
La elegí hoy porque: Porque hoy es un día tan bueno como cualquier otro para traerla, duh.
 
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 'til 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
'Til 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
 
También canta Mary Lambert trozos de su canción "She keeps me warm" que es una que ya les mostré. Si quieren ver una traducción de la letra, creo que en YT hay videos subtitulados, se las escribiría yo pero estoy con poco tiempo ahora, perdón ):
Un beso!

Hola. Y woooohaaaa!, no escucho mucho música como esta, pero me ha gustado bastante el ritmo y la combinación de las voces, así que me la he añadido a mi lista de spotify.
Feliz cumpleaños pre-adelantado. <3
