  • Lately, I've been reelin', watching the nightly news
    Don't seem to find the rhythm, just wanna sing the blues
    Feels like a song that never stops
    Feels like it's never gonna

    Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
    Before my heart, heart turns into stone
    So somebody please pass the megaphone
    I'll shout it on the count o' three
    One, two, three

    Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I'm singin' to the sky
    Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
    Oh, hear my prayer tonight, 'cause this is do or die
    The time has come to make a choice
    And I choose
    Yeah, I choose joy
    Let it move you (Move you, move you)

    Yeah, back when I was younger, my eyes were full o' life
    But now that I am older, I live at the speed o' light
    Feels like the cycle never stops
    Feels like it's never gonna

    Gotta get that fire, fire back in my bones
    Before my heart, heart turns into stone
    So somebody please pass the megaphone
    I'll shout it on the count o' three (Three)
    One, two, three

    Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I'm singin' to the sky
    Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
    Oh, hear my prayer tonight, 'cause this is do or die
    The time has come to make a choice
    And I choose
    Yeah, I choose joy
    Let it move you
    Joy
    Yeah, I choose joy
    Let it move you (Move you, move you)

    I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
    Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
    I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
    Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay, yeah Writer/s: Ben Glover, Joel Smallbone, Luke Smallbone, Matthew Hales, Seth Mosley, Stephen Kanicka, Tedd Tjornhom
