My sexuality is not a sin,
my love is not a crime.
I never vote on your marriage,
why must you vote on mine?
You protest 'our kind' on the streets,
You tell us we are sin.
We must walk among the hate,
We take it on the chin.
This world is filled with anger,
denial of our rights,
lasting through the screaming days,
howling through the nights.
Can a human still be human,
if he is not like you?
What makes a person 'bad' or 'wrong'?
What makes 'our kind' taboo?
You protest saying our strength will wane,
our country will cave in,
But what makes us strong could make you strong,
if you look beneath the skin.
This fighting has become absurd,
what we all need is love,
You still believe in that, don't you?
The love from God above?
You treat us all with so much hate,
I feel you don't remember,
You don't remember that special blessing,
of love's glowing ember.
All we want is equal right,
to love our fellow man.
if your lord is who you say he is,
would he make love a ban?
My love is just as sweet and pure,
my love is just like yours.
Please don't be part of the hate,
Please, just stop the wars.
