lyrics

You took away
What I didn't even know I had

The words to articulate
Don't even make me mad

Record another take
If this one ain't so great
You only live once
But I can imitate
The joy
The joy

There is a slice
Where the meaning used to be

At least I think
Cuz maybe it fell between

Record another take
If this one ain't so great
You only live once
But I can imitate
The joy
The joy

I have wallowed
A sad excuse for a clown

What's my excuse
When I can't even drown

There is a slice
Where the joy used to be
Maybe it's gone
Maybe it's not in me
Maybe I'm rotten
Maybe I'm forgotten

Record another take
If this one ain't so great
You only live once
But I can imitate

The joy
The joy
