Celebration And Pride

Location

See my hands bound
so tight
Securely hidden
Behind my back
So I just sit here
and fight

You don't know how
it is to be gay
In an society
Where you have to
hide
Your love everyday

You don't know how
hard I try
To show you that
I am no different
That if you cut me I
still will cry

You see how I fight
I do this
Every day
And every night

I will not back down
No matter how hard
you push
I will 
Stand my ground

I will not sit back
and wait
For a group of
business men
And religious
radicals 
To seal my fate

This is the 21st
century
But still you fear 
What we don't know
Not understanding we
want to be free

We want to dance in
the street
We want to walk down
the aisle
A smile on all faces
As everyone comes up
to their feet

I will not stop
until I see it that
way
Until I can look at
my spouse
Whoever he or she
may be
 And proudly say
Look at us babe
We are free today!
