Piece Of Joy

Lyric

You never know what you have until it's gone
Never learn to appreciate until you lose one
How can she ever love someone again if she'd lost all the love for herself back then?
And how can you put your faith in her knowing that you'll never get love in return?

What can I do what can I say to make you happy?
What can I sing what can I bring to make you smile?
What does it take for me to take these clouds away from you?
Maybe I can give you a piece of my joy

What can I do what can I say to make you happy again?
What can I sing what can I bring to make you smile?
What does it take for me to take these tears away from you?
Maybe I can give you a piece of my joy

Seems like she'll never learn nor realize
Those that chose to burn their hands will have to pay the price
And it's not for the money and it won't be be all these lies
The worst crime she'll commit to you will be the waste of her life
I don't hope so but look at her and you know so

What can I do what can I say to make you happy?
What can I sing what can I bring to make you smile?
What does it take for me to take these clouds away from you?
Maybe I can give you a piece of my joy

What can I do what can I say to make you happy again?
What can I sing what can I bring to make you smile?
What does it take for me to take these tears away from you?
Maybe I can give you a piece of my joy
