Why do people lose the joy?
From the happiness of life
And the safety that you’ve builds
Now cuts like the edge of a knife

And you want to get away from there
But your feet is cast in cement
And you lose sight of the future
And the meaning of what it represents

And all do it just wonder
Just be alone and wonder why
Wondering what to do with your life
Now that the joy inside of you has die

The nature that is part of life
We find no comfort there again
Like admiring the flowers
Or just walking in the rain

Or kicking the leaves in autumn
Watching spring from your window
Bar be que in the summer
Playing in the winters snow

And you can’t help from feeling alone
Living a life that’s completely empty
With loneliness growing inside of you
Like the roots of a big old tree

Marriage, love affairs, relationships
Can come apart at the seem
And the life you though you had
Was nothing but bad a dream?

Joy only comes in your life
When two person loves are true
And Understanding, respect, caring
It what make it sticks like glue?

Many homes are built on compromise
Thinking in time love will walk in the door
But if love is not in the foundation
Then it will just collapse to the floor

And that can cause temptations
And the eyes to stray
And open the gates of misery
And let wicked elements comes out to play

All it takes is one second to destroy
What takes years to accomplish
And all your blood, sweat and tears
Are now just piles of rubbish?

Joy is just a three letter word
That I think is hardly ever use
But it’s the main ingredient missing
It’s why people life is so confuse

Every one wishes for joy in their life
But joy can be very elusive
The day I am with the one I love
All of my joy to her I will give
