Rock Ballad of the Week: Journey “Knowing That You Love Me”

[Verse 1]
I still see the look in your eyes
The night you walked into my life
And how we danced
And the way that we touched
Let me know you would be mine
And how your love has set me free
An angel watching over me

[Chorus]
You lift me up if I should fall
Showing me love
When I was blind to it all
I face the fire and I stand tall
Knowing that you love me

[Verse 2]
Shared my dreams, gave me wings to soar
My guiding light through the raging storm
I find my strength to carry on
Knowing that you love me
If I could, I would go back in time
To be there the day you were born
To hold you close
Or to see your smile
And rock you away in my arms
To stand beside you through the tears
Letting go of all the fears

[Chorus]
You lift me up if I should fall
Showing me love when I was blind to it all
I face the fire and I stand tall
Knowing that you love me

[Verse 3]
Oh, someone to care
And someone to share
The little things that bring joy
To my life ooh, it scares me
We are so close but in my heart
It has got to know
I cannot imagine me in a world without you
(You lift me up)

[Chorus]
You lift me up if I should fall
Showing me love when I was blind to it all
I face the fire and I stand tall
Knowing that you love me

[Verse 4]
Shared my dreams, gave me wings to soar
My guiding light
Through the raging storm
Ooh, I find my strength to carry on
Knowing that you love me
That is all I will ever need
Is knowing that you love me

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 200 and 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 have since regrouped twice; first with Steve Augeri from 1998-2006,  then with Arnel Pineda from 2007 to the present.
