lyrics

This lack of validation
Absorbs to the core
When love is dishonored
Commitments ignored
How can I find value
In culture based on hate
How can I feel freedom
Laws don’t protect me

And my love
My love
The reason I’m alive
Oh my love
My love
The strength to survive
While we hide
And are forced to lie
The part of my life
That matters the most
Is summarized
With heart-stopping lies

We follow society
The American dream
Have jobs, bought a house
Mow the grass every week
We follow the law
Pay our taxes every year
But we both mark single
As if our love isn’t real

CHORUS

We just want our love protected
We just want to be respected

CHORUS
