Try 2 Be Kind

I say good morning to my neighbor walking down the street
She doesn’t even say a word, won’t acknowledge me
But I don’t know the situation or the history
Must be some reason she can’t handle common courtesy

I shop at Aldi south of 95th on Cicero
I see someone I recognize, so I say hello
But then they act like I’m somebody they don’t even know
I gotta be the bigger person, gotta let it go

Don’t understand it ‘cause I try 2 be kind
I try 2 be kind but it’s hard sometimes
It doesn’t matter ‘cause I’m gonna be kind
Gonna do it anyway ‘cause I know it’s right
(repeat)

Some people treat me kinda cold, I can’t deny
It makes me angry what they do, makes me wanna cry
Can’t let those negative emotions tear me up inside
Ain’t always easy being kind but I gotta try

I realize I’m only human, yeah I make mistakes
Sometimes I say things that are not appropriate to say
I know that lovin’ everybody is the only way
Gotta do what I can do to make the world a better place

Don’t understand it ‘cause I try 2 be kind
I try 2 be kind but it’s hard sometimes
It doesn’t matter ‘cause I’m gonna be kind
Gonna do it anyway ‘cause I know it’s right
(repeat)

Trying not to let the way people treat me
Get me down, disappoint me or defeat me
It’s not easy but I’m doing the best I can
Gotta listen to my heart, keep forgiving
Stay cool, focus on the way I’m living
Trying each and every day to be a better man

Don’t understand it ‘cause I try 2 be kind
I try 2 be kind but it’s hard sometimes
It doesn’t matter ‘cause I’m gonna be kind
Gonna do it anyway ‘cause I know it’s right
(repeat)
