'It has been in my heart for over a year,' the singer writes about the pro-tolerance title track to her upcoming May album.

Lady Gaga took to Twitter on Thursday to unveil the lyrics to "Born This Way," the title track to the highly-anticipated followup to her 2008 chart-topping debut, The Fame. The 24-year-old singer-songwriter's sophomore release is due May 23.

"It has been in my heart for over a year; I'm so excited to share it," Gaga wrote, after teasing on Twitter nearly six hours earlier that she may leak the lyrics later. The pro-tolerance anthem was penned by the pop superstar, who also produced the track with Fernando Garibay and DJ White Shadow.
