lyrics

I can build my castles to touch the sky
I can build my kingdom a thousand miles wide
I can fly my flag for all to see
But inside it’s just me, pretending to be, pretending to have joy

To have you, to hold you
In heart and hand, it’s joy
To know me, to know you
Understanding joy
Then it slips away like a summer day, it’s joy
Come back, come back

To have the life I’ve always dreamed
Will never be quite enough it seems
Loved ones under pressure all the time
It ain’t fair to have them living on that line
Cause the moment that I’m close to you
Is the minute that you start to fade away
Tell me what do I have to do
Something that will make you want to stay, fill my days with joy

To have you, to hold you
In heart and hand, it’s joy
To know me, to know you
Understanding joy
Then it slips away like a summer day, it’s joy
Come back, come back

Joy
To have you, to hold you
In heart and hand, it’s joy
To know me, to know you
Understanding joy
Then it slips away like a summer day, it’s joy
Come back, come back

Joy
I can have everything in the world (in heart and hand it’s joy)
Beautiful life, everything I could dream about (understanding joy)
Without you what is it really worth?
Joy
Come back, come back
