    that's a lot of folks to sweep under the rug
    a whole lot of people to deny a same-sex hug

    as a teenager i took girls to prom, to dinner
    while dreaming about a boy, a horrible a sinner

    my boyfriend has never shared a table
    with my mom, my sis, my bro

    it's not right but it's okay
    because i just let go

    i spent the first 30 years living for everyone else
    i'll spend the rest living for myself

    i'm finally me which is so much more
    than I used to think i could be

    i'm not bitter, i'm not sad
    i'm just living the life i never had

    i can't make a baby with my boo
    no offense but i really don't want to

    sorry to the parents that find this such harsh news
    sorry to the church folks crying in the pews

    i used to thank friends for loving a gay dude
    for treating me no different or being crude

    kinda silly when you think it through
    because i would never do that to you

    if jesus doesn't like it, that's cool
    because who you worship is not about me, it's about you

    if i could have one wish this valentine's day
    dinner and a movie, without a dirty look coming my way

    love is patient. kind. never fails.
    it is not undermined by hate, religion, or even 2 males
