Wonder, Stevie - Joy Inside My Tears Lyrics




I've always come to the conclusion
That 'but' is the way
Of asking for permission
To lay something heavy on one's head

So I have tried to not be the one
Who 'll fall into that line
But what I feel inside
I think you should know

And baby that's you, you, you made life's history
'Cause you've brought some joy inside my tears
And you have done what no one thought could be
You've brought some joy inside my tears

I've always felt that
Tomorrow is for those
Who are too much afraid
To go past yesterday
And start living for today

I feel that lasting
Moments are coming
Far and few between
So I should tell you
Of the happiness that you bring

Baby, baby, it's you, you, you made life's history
Oh baby, you've brought some joy inside my tears
Baby, you have done what no one thought could be
You've brought some joy inside my tears

You've brought some joy inside my tears
You've brought some joy inside my tears

You've brought some joy inside my tears
Baby, baby, you have done what no one thought could be
Hey, you've brought some joy inside my tears

Gotta tell you, you, you, you made life's history
You've brought some joy inside my tears
You've brought, you've brought, you've brought some joy inside my tears
Baby, baby, baby, you have done what no one thought could be
You've brought some joy inside my tears

You made it, baby, you made it, baby, made it, made life's history
You, you, you made life's history
You've brought some joy inside my tears
You have done what no one thought could be
Nobody ever thought it would be
You've brought some joy inside my tears

You, you, you made life's history
You have made
Gotta shout about it, baby
You've brought some joy inside my tears
You have done what no one thought could be
You've brought some joy inside my tears

Oh, baby, you, you, you made life's history
You've brought some joy inside my tears

You've brought some joy inside my tears
Ah, ah, baby
You've brought some joy inside my tears

    When we talk about Stevie Wonder, we talk about a level that's yet to be touched.

    OldschoolMusicJunkie

    Very very few artists have created like he has, but none for as long.

    V J

    Prince came close

  31. Blossom Hicks

    In 1976 it's was the 57th in top recording how rude I graduated in 1977 I have always been into music this is the album of all time. Ever.

  39. Gregory Johnson

    In this life of living on this Earth some people will never find out what loving someone else truly means because of a condition or not blessed to have the abilities to look and feel what it is to Love someone in a Special kind of Way physically and mentally. Those of us who can have that feeling is the greatest feeling you can have Happiness and Love.

    OldschoolMusicJunkie

    The only song on the entire album that didn't get airplay but definitely needed to be heard.

    Jason Harris

    Is there any song at all that he DOESN'T make sound so smooth to our ears?

  42. claudio basso

    I dedicate this to the God who helped heal my heart and open it to love again.

  46. derrickneil

    It just blows my mind when I think of the songs on this album! What kind of zone was this man in? Absolutely transcendent! Couldn't even imagine his creative state of mind during this classical period. The man was spitting out songs just as easy as he was breathing!

    OldschoolMusicJunkie

    I agree. Truly a musically creative genius!!!!

  55. Gilberto Bartras

    I've always come to the conclusion that 'but' is the way
    Of asking for permission to lay something heavy on ones head
    So I have tried to not be the one who'll fall into that line
    But what I feel inside I think you should know


    And baby that's you, you, you
    Made life's his-to-ry
    'Cause you've brought some joy inside my tears
    And you have done what no one thought could be
    Ah-ah! You've brought some joy inside my tears


    I've always felt that tomorrow is for those who are too much afraid
    To go past yesterday and start living for today
    I feel that lasting moments are coming far and few between
    So I should tell you of the happiness that you bring


    Baby, baby it's you, you, you
    Made life's history
    Oh baby, you've brought some joy inside my tears
    You have done what no one thought could be
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    , yeah
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You brought some joy inside my tears


    Yeah, yeah, You've brought some joy inside my tears
    Baby, baby, you have done what no one thought could be
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    Gotta tell you
    You you you made life's history
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You brought, you brought, you brought some joy inside my tears
    Baby, baby, baby you have done what no one thought could be
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You made it baby you made it baby made it made life's his-to-ry
    You you you made life's his-to-ry
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You have done what no one thought could be
    Nobody ever thought it would be
    You have done what no one thought could be
    You you you made life's history
    Gotta shout about it baby
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You have done what no one thought could be
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You you you made life's history
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You brought some joy inside my tears
    You brought some joy inside my tears.

  56. Barbara Wisdom

    I don't know why I did not feel then what I feel now about this song. THE WORDS. Took me a while to truly understand, but there it is Monstrous. Love you Stevie Wonder, you just made my day!!!!

    OldschoolMusicJunkie

  60. natedoggg2002

    Songs in the Key of Life is a true Masterpiece! Stevie wonder is a Musical genius of Epic proportions! He was ahead of his time for 1976 which is why his music will stand the test of time!

    OldschoolMusicJunkie

    You are absolutely right. He was so far ahead of everyone else. Which is ironic because this album was about life in the times of the mid 70's.

    Wendell Wartes

    Stevie's music is the ultimate black experience

    Blossom Hicks

    You better tell the truth this is music!!!
