WHEN THE WALLS COME TUMBLING DOWN – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
WHEN THE WORLD STOPS SPINNING ‘ROUND – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
WHEN MY HEART WON’T SEEM TO MOVE
WHEN MY MUSIC’S LOST THE GROOVE
WHEN I HAVE TOO MUCH TO PROVE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)

WHEN HATE IS ALL I SEE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
WHEN FEAR WON’T LET ME BE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
WHEN BETRAYAL AND LIES
HIDE THE LIGHT FROM MY EYES
I LOOK UP TO THE SKIES – AND I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)

JOY JOY JOY JOY JOY I CHOOSE JOY (2X)

IN THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
FOR THE ONES THAT I HOLD DEAR – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
TO BE WHO I MUST BE
FOR THE LIGHT TO SHINE IN ME
FOR EVERYBODY TO BE FREE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)

JOY JOY JOY JOY JOY I CHOOSE JOY (2X)

I FIND A STABLE GROUND – PEACE AND HOPE ABOUND
I HEAR A SWEETER SOUND – THE CHAINS HAVE COME UNBOUND
LOVE IS ALL AROUND WHEN I CHOOSE JOY

IN THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
FOR THE ONES THAT I HOLD DEAR – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
TO BE WHO I MUST BE
FOR THE LIGHT TO SHINE IN ME
FOR EVERYBODY TO BE FREE – I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
AND EVERYBODY WILL BE FREE – WHEN I CHOOSE JOY – (I CHOOSE JOY)
