'This Human Joy' is a hopeful song about finding peace in the beauty of small and simple things, when often it's easy to slip into feeling frustrated or irritated by the world, routine and to stop taking chances and risks. It's about accepting the fact that we can't always know where we're going or what will happen to us and embracing those mysteries.

In the video, I wanted to look at four different facial responses to different emotional triggers and then to slow them right down, and to capture the tiny changes that we often miss or overlook when we see them at normal speed. Please watch in HD for this reason.

'This Human Joy'

This is for those who do not sing, but die
With all their music still within them
And for those mouths which speak with joy of death
And journeys planned but never taken

This is for those who do not sing, but die
With all their music still within them
And from those mouths there comes a perfect choir
And every sound they make is sacred

Oh, there is beauty in that unforeseen future
There is beauty in that small diminished voice
There is beauty in that unknown

This human joy, it is our birthright
My dear, grow bold and let's be braver
Because in your brain there is a perfect mind
And all the world that it created

This human joy, when soft voices die
Vibrates in the memory

Oh, there is beauty in that unforeseen future
There is beauty in that small diminished voice
There is beauty in those long forgotten words
There is beauty in that unknown!
