  • 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

    Whoa-oh, oh-oh
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

    I'm still yours

    I'm forever yours
    Forever yours

  • Chase Tart from North Carolina I’m 14 and this has to be my favorite song, which testifies to this song being so timeless. Not many musicians would credit God with the gift to write songs, so major props to Jonathan.
  • Anonymous from Nacogdoches TexasI get the joy of rediscovering you...
  • A-bomb from Duluth, Ga UsaAnd 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
  • Rafael Burgos from Clovis, CaThis song makes me cry.
  • Stuartdevoy from Cornwall, United KingdomI was always ridiculed at school for liking Journey, not that any of the kids had ever heard there stuff, I'm English) I guess they weren't hip enough. then glee sing there songs and everybody's saying how good they are, all those years they missed out on, there is a lesson there somewhere. this is a great track used to stand in my bedroom with a tennis racket pretending to Neil Schon.
  • Betty from Bedford, OhI thought this song was written by Steve Perry but I guess not LOL songs that are written about something you feel are the best songs. This is one of my ultimate favorites songs.
  • Hannah from Ottawa, OnANY Journey song is a good song but I particularly like Faithfully and Open Arms. They remind me of the early 8o's when I was in middle school. We always heard these songs at the school dances.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOMG! This song is so great! One of the greatest bands in history...
  • Mariana from Timisoara, RomaniaI decided to have this song played at my wedding when I first heard it, years before I met my husband. It is so beautiful and so romantic!
  • Jordan from San Antonio, Txmy bf is the best to me.
    im so thankful for him and how he treats me.
    after everything he still cares for me tremendously..
    i cried when i heard this song
    after he told me it reminds him of me like crzy.
    he is a very known band...and this song fits his commitment towards me . i love him
  • Tt from Columbia, ScA piece of history a song that will last forever and a day ,
  • Danny from Your Town, IaA song that will stand the test of time. Our grandkids will be talking about this one. My 17 year old already does.
  • David from Youngstown, OhOne of the most unintentionally funny songs ever. The lyrics are so cliche. "They say that the road ain't no place to start a family" and "Circus lights under the big top world." So ridiculous.

    Forever yours...faithfully
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnJourney's best song - hands down.
  • Brandon from Kalamazoo, Mimy favorite song of all time....just hits me every time...Steve Perry's voice it's so good
  • Jackie Moritz from Philadelphia, PaWhen I first heard this song I was 13, now almost four years later this song still is my favorite! My best friend Jarred & I dedicated this song to each other. He moved away two years ago and to me this song describes how faithful we are to each other.
  • Aaron from Jacksonville, FlWhen I first heard this song when I was 17 it has gotten me through a lot of tough times! One of there best!!
  • Rhodora from Quezon , PhilippinesThis song was written by Jonathan Cain on a napkin of The Hilton Hotel when they were on the road, touring.
  • Aldrin from Manila, Philippinesvery romantic journey song..beautiful song lines accompanied with steve perry's powerful vocals and neil schon's i have nothing to say about this song but for me its a classic..
  • Erikka from Buckeye, AzThis song is probably the most romantic song I have ever heard!! I love it! I asked the DJ at prom if he would play it, and he asked me "Who's Journey?" I thought he was joking. I was 10 years younger than the guy, and he didn't even know who Journey is!! Pitiful, just pitiful.
  • Jeff from Chicago, GaRandy jackson played bass on the Raised on Radio album and toured with the band.. that hot pink outfit he wore should be outlawed!!
  • Melissa from Lorton, VaI love this song... I remember when I was four and my dad would play this song on the radio to help me go to sleep. It is one of my favorite Journey songs.
  • Jeff from Austin, TxI agree with Scott from Columbus. That is a fantastic line. And the line before it as well..."Two strangers learn to fall in love again". Unbelievable song, easily one of the best ever written. And as usual, Steve Perry sang the hell out of it.
  • Chris from Miami, FlI used to love this song because I would always dedicate it to my gf wenever i would hear it but after all that it really meant nuthing. Its a great song with lyrics that have meaning but honestly I don't like it anymore =[
  • Julia from Knoxville, TnRyan, it's ironic that I notice you're in Mobile, AL. this song was popular when I lived there.
  • Julia from Knoxville, TnMy best friend was able to go to a Journey concert, and that is what makes her get emotional now when she and I both hear the song.
  • Matt from Bristol, United StatesI first heard this song about 10 years ago on a TV advert for a sale on sofas at BHS :P Then, last year, I bought a Journey album and was instantly reaquainted.
  • I. Orta from Austin, Txit stinks being born in 89 cuz nobody tells you about all this great music that was created before any song that came out was manufactured from a make up artist an excutive and some eye candy to sell records. i wanna know what the good times were like, especially when gas was low. and 80s people thought they knew everything, i wanna know!!!!
  • Mike from Orleans, InThis is my favorite Journey song. i am one of a few students at my high school who listens to Journey.
  • Brad from Redding, CaHas anybody seen the music video for this? It has got to be one of the most unintentially funny things I've ever seen. The shot of Steve Perry about to shave his moustache is hilarious.
  • Millerman from Dacusville, ScHey Danny in Cape Breton (sounds like a beautiful place), it was 3 years after this song was released before Randy Jackson came on board for the Journey lads. Cheers, mate!
  • Robert from San Francisco, CaGreat ipod song while riding throught the streets of SF!
  • Danny from Cape Breton, Canadatotaly wicked song i was wondering if american idol judge randy jackson played with journey or this track as a basist, i am sure he has,
    as said earlier this one will take you back to that special one who will always be faithfully!
  • Scott from Columbus, OhThe line: "I get the joy of re-discovering you" is nothing short of genius and inspiring...what a beautiful way to say I still appreiciate your love and how much it inspires me.
    Fooking beautiful! Journey was a certainly one of the best combinations of musicians to ever become. Bravo!
  • Jayna from Youngstown, OhJourney is by far the GREATEST band in the entire world!!! i love open arms best song ever! faithfully is my 2nd favorite song!! JOURNEY KICKS ASS!!
  • Dee from Indianapolis, InThis has to be one of the best love songs ever written. Between this and Open Arms you can't go wrong for slow dancing or romancing. This reminds me of some of my 1st crushes I had as a early teen. I still can tear up over this one at times.
  • Ryan from Mobile, AlTrue is a great song. I do think of the one that got away :'(
  • Joe from Ocala, FlYou can't hear this song without thinking of the girl that got away in your own life.
