Here we stand
Worlds apart
Hearts broken in two, two, two
Sleepless nights
Losing ground
I'm reaching for you, you, you

Feelin' that it's gone
Can't change your mind
If we can't go on
To survive the tide
Love divides

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Troubled times
Caught between confusions and pain, pain, pain
Distant eyes
Promises we made were in vain
In vain, vain

If you must go
I wish you love
You'll never walk alone
Take care my love
Miss you love

Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched
And went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched
And went our separate ways

Ooooh
Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
If he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
You know I still love you

I still love you, girl
I really love you, girl
And if he ever hurts you
True love won't desert you
Nooo
Nooo

    General Comment:The song is actually call Seperate Ways (Worlds Apart) and it's about a guy who lost this girl he loves and she doesn't love him but in case she feels has no one to turn to he's still there for her.....with a broken heart love is still there......

    General Comment:Let's face it, the video would be nothing without Steve Perry's hair. There. I said it. That and the keyboard on the warehouse wall.

    General Comment:This song I think in a way, compliments' This Boy' by The Beatles and vice versa. Its about being with someone who has just decided they dont want to be with you anymore, that they want to be with someone else...the other man so to speak. Its about letting them go but reminding them of everything you shared, times that you touched, and how you will still love them no matter what the outcome...if he hurts you, true love wont desert you. Its about always being there for them even though you may have gone your seperate ways for now. Fantastic song, I give it my two thumbs up anyhow... :)

    General Comment:even though two people are separated, they will always be together in a way. gotta love those keyboards throughout the song. and neal makes that guitar fucking WAIL!

    i'm not much into love songs, but Journey does so much more than the typical "don't leave me" crap we hear on the radio/MTV these days.

    very 80s but very cool
