Hard To Keep Turning The Other

Verse 1:
Quick stop, short of time
But now he's trapped in the checkout line
It's hard to keep turning the other
One in front ignores cashier
Cell phone stuck to her ear
It's hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other

Chorus 1:
Cheek . . . she's unaware
She couldn't care for his needs as he broods
“You're not alone!
Think of me!
Show some courtesy
It's hard to keep turning the other cheek”

Verse 2:
Dogs barking night and day
Loud, late parties keep him awake
It's hard to keep turning the other
Appointments never show
Left lane drivers way too slow
It's hard to keep turning the other

Chorus 2:
Cheek . . . they're unaware
They couldn't care for his needs as he shouts
“You're not alone!
Think of me!
Show some courtesy
It's hard to keep turning the other cheek”

Bridge:
He's sick of getting stepped on everyday
Letting the rude have their selfish way
Biting his tongue to avoid an unpleasant scene

Verse 3:
Pushed too far, had enough
Now nine lie in pools of blood
It's hard to keep turning the other
SWAT team 'bout to break inside
One bullet left . . . To clear his mind
It's hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other

Chorus 3:
Cheek . . . they weren't aware
They couldn't care 'bout his pain` as he cries
“I'm not a brick!
I hurt and bleed!
Show some courtesy
It's hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other
Hard to keep turning the other . . .”
