(Verse 1) I was wrong I'll be the first to admit I wasn't strong, at time I wanted to quit I let You down and I know what it ain't right But living without You I can see That life just can't be for me Walking round trying to play the part Down inside no one could sed my broken heart Feeling like I'm bound, but I really wanna be free What I'm really trying to say is that You can't take you joy from me
(Chorus) Don't take your joy from me Without it where would I be Like a ship tossed and driven No reason for living Don't take it away, don't take it away
(Verse 2) Your joy is my strength I know Without it where would I go? Now I understand what you really mean to me They can say what they want to say But I'm gona keep on loving You this way They say you don't miss your water till your well runs dry Well I'm sure 'nuf missing you I ain't gone tell no lie I wanna come home Would You please let me in? I'm really trying' to make You see I want to start over again.
Bridge Without You no joy, no life, no reason to live I give all that I am So do what You want to What I'm really trying to say is Don't take Your joy away
