You’re always preaching to me forgiveness is the key
To keepin’ our love happy and strong
With the way you been living, I’m so busy forgiving
I ain’t seen happy for so long

The GOOD BOOK says turn the other cheek
Seventy times seven or more
But these cheeks of mine have been turned too many times
This time I’m TURNIN’ TOWARDS THE DOOR

With the GOOD BOOK in your hand, you prayed I’d understand
When you come flashing that tell-tale grin
In the past I’d cut you slack, but my bag’s already packed
I’ve taken your last one on the chin

The GOOD BOOK says turn the other cheek
Seventy times seven or more
But these cheeks of mine have been turned too many times
This time I’m TURNIN’ TOWARDS THE DOOR

You might think I’m unjust, as I leave you in my dust
But take a closer look at that BOOK
If you read it front to back you’ll have to face the fact
There’s a few parts you might have overlooked

The GOOD BOOK says turn the other cheek
Seventy times seven or more
But these cheeks of mine have been turned too many times
This time I’m TURNIN’ TOWARDS THE DOOR

These cheeks of mine have been turned too many times
This time I’m TURNIN’ TOWARDS THE DOOR

Baby, baby, TURNIN’ TOWARDS THE DOOR
