real joy | Recha-Maria

Verse 1:
They say: It’s important what you look like
You have to be successful in your life
Having good marks making a career
That’s what you need to be happy

I had it all but I felt empty
Where was the happiness they promised?
I had it all but I felt empty
Was everything I’d done in vain?

Chorus:
Oh, I need more!
I need real joy that settles down deep within my heart
Real joy that filles me up and never fades away

Verse 2:
When people say:
You look pretty and what you do is wonderful
These kinds of compliments they only hurt your heart

Bridge:
So I gave it up trying to do it by myself
And let me fall into your arms
I heard the most beautiful words ever spoken
They filled my heart just like sweet music fills the ear
