Anita Baker – You Bring Me Joy lyrics

You bring me joy
When I'm down
Oh, so much joy
When I lose my way your love comes smiling on me

I saw your face
And then I knew
We would be friends
I was so afraid but your arms, they'd say 'come to me'

So I'd say to you
"Can we talk for a while?"
You'd say it's "alright"
When you love me, I smile
I feel your hands and you feel mine
You bring me joy

You bring me joy
Don't go too far away
If I can't see your face, I will remember your smile

But can this be right
Oh and should we be friends
I get lonely sometimes and I'm mixed up again
'Cause you're the finest thing I've seen in all my life
You bring me joy

My joy, my joy

Oh baby this is gonna be what you want it to be
I just love you, I just love you, oh can't you see
That you're the finest I've seen in all my life
You bring me joy

My joy. .. You are... You're my joy
My joy. .. My, my joy

Ohhh Thank you baby, thank you baby
I just love you, baby... I just love you baby... I just love you
When I lose my way, your love comes smiling on me
