There’s going to be a whole lot of music coming up on this site now, music that have been an inspiration to me in one way or another. First out is the greatest rock ballard ever made, by the greatest rock band that ever existed: Journey. Listen to the beautiful lyrics of this song, performed by Steve Perry – whose vocal skill is simply amazing. My deepest respect goes out to keyboardist Jonathan Cain who wrote this song. It is a story about living on the road, but missing your loved one back home.
Here is the first version (with better sound than the second), with lyrics and mixed photos, old and new.
Here’s a longer clip with (1) Steve Perry version video and (2) Arnel Pineda Live in concert.
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
