SURPRISED BY JOY song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I was
surprised by joy
when I felt you so near

just for a second time
I forgot
that you were gone
through years full of tears

for a moment
you were with me still
as I stood
all alone on the hill

so quickly
joy was pain
I'd do anything
just to have you back again

I know but yet
there no making bargains
with the night or with death

but I miss you
I love you
I need you
but there is nothing left

but to be
surprised by joy
when I forget
when I forget ....


based on a poem by William Wordsworth

Beautifully written. Even joyful memories can bring pain.

I like the thought of being surprised by joy.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/26/2012
Our thoughts can play tricks that are sometimes surprisingly pleasant. Another beautiful song.
