Pochi giorni dopo le celebrazioni del Gay Pride a livello mondiale, il duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ha deciso di pubblicare il suo terzo singolo “Same love“, dedicato proprio all’amore omosessuale.

Sia la canzone sia il relativo video ufficiale raccontano in modo toccante e allo stesso tempo garbato la storia di tutte quelle persone che, ogni giorno, devono affrontare un mondo che spesso non le capisce o, ancora peggio, le tratta come oggetti di scherno e pregiudizio. Il brano è una ballata rap veramente dolce ed efficace e non abbiamo dubbi che ripeterà il successo dei due singoli precedenti “Thrift Shop” e “Can’t hold us”: ad impreziosire ulteriormente il pezzo è la voce dell’artista Mary Lambert, lesbica dichiarata, che si è detta onorata di aver partecipato a questo progetto musicale.

Ecco dunque il video e il testo di Same Love: che ne pensate?


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’ is somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written
3,500 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 [x4]

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

I don’t know

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

[Outro: Mary Lambert]
Love is patient, love is kind
Love is patient (not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind (not crying on Sundays)
