Don't Stop Believin'" as recorded by
Journey

Just a small town girl Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere...
Just a city boy Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere...

A singer in a smoky room The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night It goes on and on and on and on...

CHORUS:
Strangers waiting Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night------

Working hard to get my fill Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice Just one more time
Some will win Some will lose Some were born to sing the blues
Oh The movie never ends It goes on and on and on and on

CHORUS:

LEAD

Don't stop believin' Hold on to the feelin' Streetlight people---
Don't stop believin' Hold on-------------- Streetlight people---

Those crazy nights, I do remember in my youth
I do recall, those were the best times, most of all
In the heat with a blue jean girl
Burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
She found me singing by the rail road track
Took me home, we danced by moonlight

[Chorus:]
Those summer nights are callin',
Stone in love
Can't help myself I'm fallin'
Stone in love

Old dusty roads, led to the river
Runnin' slow
She pulled me down, and in clover
We'd go 'round
In the heat with a blue jean girl
Burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
Oo the memories never fade away
Golden girl, I'll keep you forever.

[Chorus]

It's been a mystery
But still they try to see
Why something good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one-way street
The taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, somewhere

One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who's crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who'll be the lonely one?
One love, who's crying now?

So many stormy nights
So many wrong or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lover's rage
They turn another page
The fighting is worth the love they save

One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who's crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who'll be the lonely one?
One love, who's crying now?

Only so many tears you can cry
'Til the heartache is over
And now you can say your love,
Will never die

Whoa ooh ooh, ooh ooh

One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who's crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who'll be the lonely one?
One love, who's crying now?

Workin' in the city
This town's got no pity
Bossman owns a heart of stone
I'm on the line, it's overtime
I'll tell you it's a crime
They get me by the hour
By my blue collar
You're squeezin' me too tight
It's Friday night
Let's run tonight
Till the morning light.

[Chorus:]
Keep on runnin', keep on hidin'
Keep on runnin' away
It's okay, it's alright
It's okay, it's alright
And if it makes you want to jump and shout, go ahead!
Keep on runnin' keep on hidin'
Keep on runnin' away, it's okay.

Crusin' with my baby
Think we just might maybe
Find some back seat rhythm and blues
Radio, down we go, down we go.

[Chorus]

Jesse rides through the night
Under the Main Street light
Ridin' slow

This ol' town, ain't the same
Now nobody knows his name
Times have changed, still he rides.

Traffic lights, keepin' time
Leading the wild and restless
Through the night

[Chorus:]
Still they ride, on wheels of fire
They rule the night
Still they ride, the strong will survive
Chasing thunder

Spinning 'round, in a spell
It's hard to leave this carousel
'Round and 'round
And 'round and 'round

[Chorus:]

He's just a young boy out of school
Livin' his world like he wants to
They're makin' laws, but they don't understand
Turns a boy in to a fightin' man
They won't take me
They won't break me
No one could tell him what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the street, breakin' all the rules
I'm tellin' you that he's nobody's fool
They won't take me
They won't break me
Now he's leavin', gettin' out from this masquerade
Oh gotta go

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'm movin' on where they'll never find me
Rollin' on to anywhere
I'll break away, yes I'm on my way
Leavin' today, yes I'm on my way
Just when you think you had it all figured out
Runnin' scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give
How hard times can fool ya
Oh I'm okay, I'm alright
Feelin' good out on your own

I'll break away, I'll break away tonight
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving', leavin' today
Yes, I'm on my way
This is my escape
Yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way

Lookin' 'round for a feelin'
I love the rhythm and blues
The place was rockin' and reelin'
I thought I'd shake me loose
The band was pumpin' Motown
Lord how they could play
The girls a-started singing
Rock the night away

[Chorus:]
By the midnight hour
They could've raised the dead
They were takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, ringin' in my head
Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

Whiskey, wine and women
They get me though the night
I ain't lookin' for trouble
I ain't lookin' to fight
A little vertical persuasion
Would do me right
What I'm really needin'
Ah, double shot tonight.

By the midnight hour
We were on our way
She was takin' it higher
Higher, higher, higher, then I heard say

[Chorus]

A double secret agent
And he was paid to kill
With cold steel magnum force is how the man possessed the skill
He shot a man in Paris
He did a job in L.A.
And if the price was right, he'd surely
Take your life away

[Chorus:]
Wanted, dead or alive, blood for money, money
***ault, homicide, blood for
Money, money, money, money
Wanted

He drove a Maserati, lived up in the hills
A cat with nine lives that's gone
Too far to feel the chill
He never though it'd happen
It was his last mistake
Cause he was gunned down by a
Heartless woman's thirty eight.

[Chorus]

She sits alone, an empty stare
A mother's face she wears
Where did she go wrong,
The fight is gone
Lord help this broken home

[Chorus:]
Hey, mother, father, sister
Hey, come back, tryin', believein'
Hey, mother, father, dreamer

Don't you know that I'm alive for you
I'm your sevenths son
And when lightin' strikes the family
Have faith, believe.

With dreams he tried, lost his pride
He drinks his life away
One photograph, in broken glass
It should not end this way.

Through bitter tears
And wounded years, those ties
Of blood were strong
So much to say, those yesterdays
So now don't you turn away.

[Chorus]

Lying beside you here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper you're so sincere
How could our love be so blind
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, belive what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms

Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
wating to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home

But now that you've come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide, belive what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms
