Lyrics

Joie de Vivre (Joy of Life)

The Prophet

I never know just how I want to spend the day with you

I know I never want to spend a day in life without you

Being with you makes me free

Your heart is where I want to be

The Joy of Life is in giving

 

When I was lonely all I thought about was being loved

But you have taught me joy comes from giving and not receiving

Sharing with you makes me free

My heart is where you’ll always be

The Joy of Life is when I live in your love

 

I take the risk and I

dive in

your love

the place I

choose to live

in freedom

and not in fear

 

A day will come when we will separate to pass from this life

And one will grieve while one moves on to see eternal beauty

I know if first I stay behind

My heart will echo with my mind

The Joy of Life is love eternal

 

I’ve always known that true love comes to those who wait with patience

A pearl of value far beyond the dust of endless ages

Being with you makes me free

Your heart is where I want to be

The Joy of Life is in your love

 

Sharing with you makes me free

My heart is where you’ll always be

The Joy of Life is in your love

You don’t know the answer to the reason why and

Anyway what’s the question

I have often wondered why the path you chose

Has taken you this direction

 

Well no one seems to find the way and

We just waste another day away

Watch the clock and don’t waste time cause

When you should have started was today

 

Walk through walls but empty halls will wait

When you’re not qualified to teach it

The path you chose was sought through mind and now you’re left

With what’s behind to preach it.

 

You thought you might have found a way

Today tomorrow now the hour is gone

You looked for truth and found yourself

And now your days they seem so very long

 

Time will pass and world’s will end and there you’ll be

A soaking mess to view it

It never seems to be your fault

Responsibility comes from the pulpit

 

Well you were one who knew the way and gambled it

For what you’d rather do

You kept your mind and sold your soul and now we have to

Wait for someone new

 

It's not too late!

It's not too late!

It's not too late!

It's not too late!

 

Watch the clock and don't waste time

When you should have started was today

It's not too late

More time

Don't waste time

It's not too late

Don't waste time

Divine Mercy

It's not too late
