Rock Ballad of the Week: Journey “Faithfully”

Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You’re on my mind
Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sendin’ all my love
Along the wire
They say that the road
Ain’t no place to start a family
Right down the line
It’s been you and me
And lovin’ a music man
Ain’t always what it’s supposed to be
Oh girl you stand by me
I’m forever yours, faithfully
Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile
Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am
Lost without you
And being apart ain’t easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy
Of rediscovering you
Oh girl, you stand by me
I’m forever yours, faithfully
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Faithfully, I’m still yours
I’m forever yours
Ever yours, faithfully

Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band has gone through several phases; its strongest commercial success occurred between 1978 and 1987 when Steve Perry was lead vocalist. During that period, the band released a series of hit songs, including “Don’t Stop Believin’ (1981), which in 2009 became the top-selling track in iTunes history among songs not released in the 21st century.
Its parent studio album, Escape, the band’s seventh and most successful, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200and yielded another of their most popular singles, “Open Arms“. Its 1983 follow-up album, Frontiers, was almost as successful in the United States, reaching No. 2 and spawning several successful singles; it broadened the band’s appeal in the United Kingdom, where it reached No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart. Journey enjoyed a successful reunion in the mid-1990s and later regrouped with a series of lead singers.

  1. I’m sad that Steve Perry was replaced from Journey, the replacement singer sounds very much like him but doesn’t have the energy that Steve had in my opinion. I think Steve lives in the SF Bay Area, I still like singing to his classic songs.
