Don’t Stop Believin’

I am getting some help on this blog post thanks to Journey and their song “Don’t Stop Believing.”

While at the party in the Philippines on our last night, Day 8 (Jess’s View), Bong was trying to get everyone to start singing some songs for videoke. A few people sang some songs. Then Jordan and Krya picked out the song “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. They dragged me into it, which I really didn’t mind, and we started singing. I quickly fell back into my ways as a high schooler while hanging with these two. It felt good to be back at that point where anything could be fun. As long as you are having fun, it really didn’t matter how you looked or what people were thinking. We belted out the lyrics with enthusiasm and an overwhelming joy. We couldn’t help but laugh our way through the entire song.

The thing that I really liked about this song that night was that I really wanted to hold on to the feeling of that last day and night. I wanted to remember all of the wonderful times that I had throughout the week. I didn’t want to stop believing that the experience would end. It was the perfect song to end the week and a fun song to see with the girls! If only could could have seen us! Maybe on some other occasion.

 

Don’t Stop Believing

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

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlights 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 are born to sing the blues
And now the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

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

Don´t stop believin
Hold on to that feelin´
Streetlight people

Don´t stop believin
Hold on to that feelin´
Streetlight people
Don’t Stop!
