Journey "Can't Stop Believin" Lyrics

 Journey album - Escape (image from Wikipedia)
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
A 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.
Journey album -Revelation (image from Wikipedia)

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

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to the feelin’
Streetlights, people

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to the feelin’
Streetlight people

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to the feelin’
Streetlights people

The song became a rallying cry for the Chicago White Sox in their successful run to the 2005 playoffs, when catcher A.J. Pierzynski and teammates heard the song being sung in a bar in Baltimore. The song was played at critical points during the stretch run of the pennant race, a season which culminated in the team's first World Series championship in over 80 years. The White Sox invited Journey lead singer Steve Perry to the team's celebration rally, where he sang the song along with several members of the team. In 2008, in a tight battle for first place with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West, the Los Angeles Dodgers began to play "Don't Stop Believin'" in the middle of the 8th inning at all of their home games. Subsequently, the song was played at Dodger home games throughout the 2009 season, much to the chagrin of Steve Perry, a self-proclaimed San Francisco Giants fan (the band itself formed in San Francisco). The Minnesota Twins played the song during the run up to the pennant in 2009. The "Born and raised in South Detroit" line was replaced with boos when the Detroit Tigers were in town. The song is also commonly played at Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings and Washington Capitals hockey games. It is also used at numerous Detroit sporting events, including Michigan football games, due to the line "Born and raised in South Detroit" (despite the fact that there is no area of the city called by that name). Unless the lyric was originally written as "South Detroit", there's no error -- "south Detroit" simply refers to the south side of Detroit.
Likewise, the song became the unofficial anthem for the Giants' 2010 postseason, especially after a local musician created a parody version of the song following their winning the 2010 National League West Division. The song was used during the end montage following the Fox network's coverage of the 2010 World Series, which was won by the Giants. Steve Perry appeared in the Giants' subsequent victory parade, and the song was played at the start of the Giants' victory rally. (source: Wikipedia)

Surprisingly, my daughters like this song! I guess they often hear it at school. This is a popular song of the Journey in 1980's. You can watch the 80's version with the original Journey group here.  Personally, I wasn't surprised upon watching the 80's version - I've lived through it. But for my daughters, "why are their jeans like that?!" - I guess that's a clear indication of generation gap! :)
