Bring Back That Blue Eyed Joy

from by Michael Holland

lyrics

It’s true that trouble has no end
It comes like an unwelcome friend.
Ingratiate itself to you, then leave
You tired, alone, and blue.

Bring back that blue eyed joy to me.
Bring back that blue eyed joy to me.
Bring it from the heavens up above.
Bring back something I can be sure of.

They say that every word is true,
But pray, what really can you do?
Go out and drink until you drown,
And hope your body will rebound.

Bring back that blue eyed joy to me.
Bring back that blue eyed joy to me.
Bring it from the heavens up above.
Bring back something I can be sure of.

It’s true that conflict has no end,
Between a lover and a friend.
But what you reap is what you sow.
What you want is what you just let go.

Bring back that blue eyed joy to me.
Bring back that joy for all to see.
Bring it from the heavens up above.
Bring back something I can be sure of.
