"Joy" as written by and Michael Joe Jackson Teddy Riley....
I try to count the stars tonight

As I look up into the sky

Out of nowhere it appeared

And I let go of all my fears

A man just screamed a sigh of delight

A blazing stream of dazzling white

Warm breeze caress my skin

Holds me close and sucks me in

This black hole, in this black...



So impressive, so beautiful

As fast as a bullet, my heart is full

It’s so impressive, so beautiful

As fast as a bullet, my mouth is full

Enjoy, joy, joy, joy yes

Enjoy joy, joy, joy



Crawling on my hands and knees

Leaves are dancing off the trees

Higher than an aeroplane

Dry my tears, I’ll rise again yeah!

I just saw a shooting star

Out the sunroof of my car

Round the mountains, up the hills

I swear to god this view could kill

In this black hole, in this black hole

In this black hole, sucks me in, in this black…



So impressive, so beautiful

As fast as a bullet my heart is full

It’s so impressive, so beautiful

As fast as a bullet my mouth is full

Enjoy, joy, joy, joy yes

Enjoy joy, joy, joy

Yeah I’ll enjoy, joy, joy, joy

You enjoy, joy, joy, joy

In this black hole

    General CommentI love this song. It's really catchy. Temposhark is a pretty cool band.
    I think this song is about realising how beautiful life is and celebrating this fact. The repetition of "this black hole" is.. (i think) the view of the world through his eyes.

    But then sometimes I think it's about him being on drugs and everything becomes beautiful and exciting. lol but i guess that's highly unlikely.

    General CommentI actually thought that this song was about sex, considering the lines "A man just screamed a sigh of delight A blazing stream of dazzling white Warm breeze caress my skin"


    I mean, honestly. What do you think of when you hear that?
