Journey

Journey is an American rock band formed in 1973 in San Francisco by former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. The band has gone through several phases; its strongest commercial success occurred between 1978 and 1987, after which it temporarily disbanded. During that period, the band released a series of hit songs, including 1981's "Don't Stop Believin'", which became in 2009 the top-selling catalog track in iTunes history.

It was a hot and steamy night,
Then Frankie pulled his gun in sight.
He said, "Now Suzi, don't you lie.

Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
It's goin' through ya.

He told her that he had been true,
And that he'd never made her blue, no.
So don't go sayin' Stevie's a liar,
Girl, I've got my finder on a hair-trigger wire.

Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
It's goin' through ya.
Bye, bye, bye, Suzi.
So long girl.

Those gunshots echoed through the town.
Oh Frankie threw his shotgun down.
That roof had moonlight shinin' through.
She said she'd never, never, never, make him blue, yea.

Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
It's goin' through ya.
Bye, bye, bye, Suzi.
So long.
