"TURN AROUND"

Verse 1
It's a tough, cold world we live in,
And it's growing colder every day.
It's a struggle to survive, just to keep your dreams alive,
Sometimes you want to run away.

Verse 2
Then a friend makes you an offer,
A little high to ease your heavy load,
But the moment you agree to say yes to drugs, you'll see,
You're started on a downward road.

Bridge 1
Even though you feel like you can't go on,
Even when confusion is all around,
You can find hope when all hope is gone
If you don't take the easy way out--.

Chorus 1
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.

Music break: ---

Rap
Friends at school said I wasn't cool.
If I didn't get high, I was just a fool.
They said it was fine to try it one time.
So I joined in, only to find
That it wasn't long before the pull got strong,
And if I wasn't gettin' high, Then I couldn't get along.
Now all I can say is that I regret the day
That I went & threw my life away.

Bridge 2
Listen to me if you wanna stay free,
The choice is still yours if you want it.
There's a reason to live,
You've got so much to give.
Please don't make the mistake I made

Chorus 2
Fight against temptation,
Resist that fascination.
Drugs might seem to thrill you,
But watch out, they can kill you!
Fight against temptation,
Resist that fascination.
Drugs might seem to thrill
You, but watch out, they can kill you!

Lead break:

Verse 3
Even though you've gone down, there's a way to turn around,
A decision that can change your heart. [Change your heart.]
The power of God can bring you back, to get moving on the track
That can give your life a new start.-

Bridge 3
Though you feel trapped, like you can't go on,
Even when confusion is all around,
You can find hope when all hope is gone,
If you don't take the easy way out.
[Don't take the easy way out!]

Chorus 3
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.

Talk Verse
Fight against temptation,
Resist that fascination,
Drugs might seem to thrill you,
But watch out, they can kill you!
Fight against temptation,
Resist that fascination,
Drugs might seem to thrill
You, but watch out, they can kill you.
[The choice is yours today!]

Chorus 4
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
[It's your life.]

Chorus 5
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Stop now, turn around,
It'll get you high, then let you down.
Turn around.
