I WANTED TO BE LOVED

I WANTED TO JOIN IN YOUR CLUB

YOU TOLD ME, “COME BACK WHEN YOU ARE NO LONGER GAY!”

 

I WANTED TO TAKE PART

TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY

YOU STATED, “WHEN YOU’VE STOPPED LIVING TOGETHER, WE’LL LET YOU PRAY!”

 

I HEARD OF THIS MAN CALLED JESUS

AND HOW YOU SAY HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SAVE

BUT IT SEEMED THAT TO BELONG, YOU WANTED ME FIRST TO BELIEVE

AND TO BELIEVE IT’S EXPECTED THAT I SHOULD FIRST BEHAVE!

 

AND SO I STOOD OUTSIDE

ALONE, IN THE RAIN

FEELING THE EMPTINESS OF A SOUL CONDEMNED

NOT BY GOD, BUT BY MAN

 

BUT I FOUND OUT YOU’VE GOT IT UPSIDE-DOWN

I MET YOUR JESUS AND HE LOVED ME

AND LET ME KNOW THAT I BELONG

THAT SENSE OF BELONGING, LED ME TO BELIEVE

AND BECAUSE I BELIEVE, I CHOOSE TO CHANGE HOW I BEHAVE

SO MAYBE NOW I’M ‘GOOD ENOUGH’ TO WALK INTO YOUR CHURCH?
