Don't Stop Believin'

"Don't Stop Believin'" is such a profound song. I've always related to it, but have never taken the time to actually consider the meaning behind what Journey was truly expressing. Granted all great artists or writers are able to reach a cord in all of us. We find something in what they are saying that resonates deep within and the connection to the author then makes us feel they "get us" or "understand" where we are coming from. Possible have even walked a mile in our shoes.

This song is like an AdultFriendFinder anthem.

Just a small town girl
Living 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

It starts out setting up the classic scenario found here. Two people, from different worlds. Both seeking something, knowing its out there to be found. Both venturing out blindly.

A singer in a smokey 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

Two people meeting from across a smokey room (the vast world of the internet). But it also makes me think of a night out, meeting someone at a bar, having a date. Your senses heightened, aware of your surroundings. How we often feel everyone is watching, and they know. Maybe its the mindset that you are someplace shady, a place not often visited by you or the person you are meeting. Even though reality is, its symbolism. The strongest verse in this whole song is "for a smile they can share the night".... We all can attest to the strength in that simplest of physical acts. But the strongest unspoken cue in the mannerism of a human. The most subtle of gestures.

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching
In the night
streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Talk about the perfect descriptions for so many here on this site... Strangers waiting.. (all of us looking for that person to contact us or to find them) up and down the boulevard (browsing profiles) Their shadows searching (the blind, invisible person behind the inconspicuous profile name) In the night... (no one in our real world knows we are here). Streetlights (computer screens) Livin' just to find emotion (so many looking for that connection, the need, desire) Hidin' somewhere in the night (when you do, so often its behind closed doors or someplace secluded or unfamiliar, out of your normal day to day travels).

Workin' 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

We put so much energy and effort into filling this void.. getting our fill. We crave it, we all want it. Think of what all we put on the line to get it. It's always a total crap shoot as to whether or not its going to be the one, or if it's another let down. Those that never figure it out, never have any luck. The cycle is never ending. Especially once you have experienced it.

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlights, people

But as humans, we are so resilient.. We persevere. Don't stop believin'... We know if we just stay the course, we are forever optimist in our search. We hold on to that feeling that has now renewed our energy, our belief in the vision, the pleasure, the gratification of our quest. And the song edges us on by reminding us the Streetlights (computer screens), the people (they are all out there, like us, you are not alone). It goes on and on and on and on... There is no end. Just keep going. It is encouraging you to keep pursing what ever it is you are seeking.

Don't stop believin'

Wow. I would normally have a smart ass comment, but all I can think of is, Wow. That is a fantastic post you have written; I really like how you have broken down each part of the song and included great philosophical insight.

You're right, this could be the theme song for AdultFriendFinder.
I will definitely remember this post when I hear that song again.

Ok, I'm back to normal self now.

Great post, although I have to say that sometimes it is VERY difficult to keep going!
