VIDEO | ‘Love, Simon’-acteur Keiynan Lonsdale lanceert single ‘Kiss The Boy’

Keiynan Lonsdale (26) speelt Bram Greenfeld in de homoromantische tienerfilm ‘Love, Simon‘.

Keiynan Lonsdale deed in 2017 zijn coming-out als biseksueel. Tegenwoordig noemt hij zichzelf vooral queer. Acteren in ‘Love, Simon’ inspireerde hem tot een coming-out.

Nu zingt hij ‘Kiss The Boy‘. De song werd ook geïnspireerd door de film en door ‘De kleine zeemeermin‘ van Disney. De tekst spreekt over angst voor eigen gevoelens.

De video toont vele kussende koppeltjes, holebi en hetero.

I been afraid
Of my place
Of this way
Of my feelings
But I’m amazed
At how we talk
It’s so chill
But there’s tension
What was the deal when your eyes locked on me
What was the deal when you smiled at me like that
Cause see I try to be cool but the problem is
You messing my emotions up
My air gets stuck
I’m scared to show just how I feel
Cause people talk
Don’t wanna worry bout whatever
Just gotta know ya deal
See half the time I’m wondering if this is real
And why not say something’s on my mind if I feel love
But when the moments right I freeze
That’s how I know my heart is his
If you wanna kiss the boy then you better kiss the boy right now
And you ain’t gotta be afraid of the words you wanna say right now
Cause love is a game we deserve to play out loud
So if you wanna
Then you better kiss the boy oh you better kiss the boy right now
Give in to love give into love
Give it the time give it the time
If it’s all a movie then you’ll see it’s only about us two
But the cost of trust is that you could throw it away
Maybe it’s overrated I probably shouldn’t chase it
But I can’t stop the crazy within
You messing my emotions up
My air gets stuck
I’m scared to show just how I feel
Cause people talk
Don’t wanna worry bout whatever
Just gotta know ya deal
See half the time I’m wondering if this is real
I might not say the one thing on my mind cause it’s too tough
But we lose our chance when we don’t try
On second thought yeah I think I might
So if you wanna kiss the boy then you better kiss the boy right now
And you ain’t gotta be afraid of the words you wanna say right now
Cause love is a game we deserve to play out loud
So if you wanna
Then you better kiss the boy oh you better kiss the boy right now
Don’t wanna hide, don’t wanna hide
Most of my life I been terrified
Spending my days always questioning
Am I wrong to love a man
I realised, I realised
Ain’t gotta hide this heart of mine
I’m gonna fight just to let you know to
Open your light, and let it glow
So if you wanna kiss the boy then you better kiss the boy right now
And you ain’t gotta be afraid of the words you wanna say right now
Cause love is a game we deserve to play out loud
So if you wanna
Then you better kiss the boy oh you better kiss the boy right now
