Joy is over there in her incredible clothes
She has silver silk shimmering down to her toes
I was doing the best that I can I suppose
But that little girl dancer
Eventually grows
Well she grows

You can't imagine all the times that I tried
To uncover the source of the tears that you cried
Let's throw it away and just go for a ride
And you'd say 'Ђњok'Ђќ but you'd keep it inside
And I tried
I tried
I tried
I tried

We want you to be happy
Don't live inside the gloom
We want you to be happy
Come step outside your room
We want you to be happy
Cause this is your song too

I never thought I could have it so good
You were the song that my soul understood
That time is a river that flows through the woods
And it lead us to places we both understood
Would be gone
Before to long
Would be gone
Before to long

When we were young we thought life was a game
But then somebody leaves you and your never the same
All of the places and people belong to the puzzle
But one of the pieces is gone
And it's you
It's you
It's you
Joy, it's you

We want you to be happy
Don't live inside the gloom
We want you to be happy
Come step outside your room
We want you to be happy
Cause this is your song too

Anytime we'll weather this storm
Inside together you'll see the change
When the sun shines through

We want you to be happy
Don't live inside the gloom
We want you to be happy
Come step outside your room
We want you to be happy
Cause this is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
This is your song too
