Baker, Anita - 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 when your eyes, they'd say 'come to me'

So I'd say to you
"Can we talk for a while? "
You'd say "alright"
When you love me, I smile
I feel you 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
Always said we'd 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 wanted life to be
I just love you, I just love you, can't you see
That you're the finest I've seen in all my life
You bring me joy

My joy... you're my joy
My joy... my, my joy

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

  74. Ulra Deja

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

    I saw your face and then I knew
    We would be friends.
    I was so afraid but your eyes, 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
    (solo)I believe this is gonna be what you want it to be
    I just love you, I just, I love you oh can't you see
    That you're the finest thing I've seen in all my life
    You bring me joy(My joy), you are, you're my joy
    (my joy), my (you bring me joy) my joy
    I, Thank you, baby, thank you, baby
    (You bring me joy)
    I just love you baby
    I just love you baby
    I, I just love you
    When I lose my way your love comes smilin' on me.
