"Joy" as written by and Samuel Ervin Beam....
Deep inside the heart of this troubled man
There’s innie binnie boy talking hard at your hand
Born bitter as a lemon, but you must understand
That you’ve been bringing me joy

And now in lie, no, you don’t want the truth
I’m only fighting cause you finally gave me something to lose
And it’s as loud as a thunder cloud and you will, too
But you’ve been bringing me joy

Deep inside the heart of this crazy mess
I’m only calm when I get lost within your well darkness
Born crooken as a creek now you’ve come to contest
That you’ve been bringing me joy

When I’m love I’m living for you
When I’ve been blue but dying got me singing the blues
And it’s a hard up silly song and bumbling tune
But now you’re bringing me joy

    My InterpretationI've loved the music Sam Beam for many years now, but never really gave this particular song much thought...that is until recently I found a connection to it through my interpretation of it. To me it's about a man who wants so badly to be with his love, and wants to be their rock. But the harder he tries, the more scared he gets of being without them. The line "I'm only frightened cause you finally gave me something to lose" tells me that he can't picture a life without them. He's trying to apologize in a way, because his past has made him bitter, but when he's with them, all that matters is the here and now. I can really relate because I've been going through similar feelings lately.
