• for KING & COUNTRY - joy. Lyrics

    From the album Burn The Ships

    Lately I've been reeling
    Watching the nightly news
    Don't seem to find the rhythm
    Just wanna sing the blues
    Feels like a song that never stops
    Feels like it's never gonna

    Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones
    Before my hard heart turns into stone
    So won't somebody please pass the megaphone
    I'll shout it on the count of three, 1, 2, 3

    Oh, hear my prayer tonight
    I'm singing to the sky
    Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
    Oh, hear my prayer tonight
    Cause this is do or die
    The time has come to make a choice
    And I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you
    Yeah, I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you

    Yeah, back when I was younger
    My eyes were full of life
    But now that I am older
    I live at the speed of light
    Feels like the cycle never stops
    Feels like it's never gonna

    Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones
    Before my hard heart turns into stone
    So won't somebody please pass the megaphone
    I'll shout it on the count of three, 1, 2, 3

    Oh, hear my prayer tonight
    I'm singing to the sky
    Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
    Oh, hear my prayer tonight
    Cause this is do or die
    The time has come to make a choice
    And I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you
    Yeah, I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you

    Though I walk through the valley in the shadow of night
    Oh with You by my side, I'm stepping into the light
    I choose Joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you

    I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
    Down in my heart to stay
    I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
    Down in my heart to stay

    But I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move
    Let it move you
    Oh, I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Let it move

    Let it move you

    Though I walk through the valley in the shadow of night
    Oh with You by my side, I'm stepping into the light
    I choose Joy
    Go let it move you
    Go let it move
    Go let it move you
    Oh, I choose joy

    Joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
    Down in my heart to stay
    I need that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart
    Down in my heart to stay
