eli lieb brandon skeie

Out gay singers Eli Lieb and Brandon Skeie penned an emotional duet in the wake of the Orlando gay nightclub massacre aptly titled, “Pulse.”

The singers dedicated the song to the victims of the mass shooting. The most resonant lyric of the song might just be, “I shouldn’t have to change who I am to count as a human.”

Lieb and Skeie filmed their music video on the streets of West Hollywood on Sunday after writing the song in just a matter of hours.

Watch and listen, below.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

So you say this is human
Your heartbeat versus mine
Im in chains cause I’m choosing
showing love or living life
I shouldn’t have to leave where I stand
I shouldn’t have to change who I am
To count as a human
Feel my pulse
With your hand on my heart
You know it beats just as hard as yours
Feel my pulse
Feel my pulse
Can’t you see that im scarred
I’m just the same as you are so just
Feel my pulse
I wish I could reach them
And strip away what separates
It’s the same air we’re breathing
The same tears run down our face
So I don’t have to leave where I stand
And I don’t have to change who I am
To count as a human
Feel my pulse
With your hand on my heart
You know it beats just as hard as yours
Feel my pulse
Feel my pulse
Can’t you see that im scarred
I’m just the same as you are so just
Feel my pulse
