Lea Salonga’s The Journey is one of my favorite songs. It’s my top 5 Videoke song. I never miss singing this in almost every videoke session with friends 😀

Half the world is sleeping, half the world’s awake
Half can hear their heart’s beat, half just hear them break.
I am but a traveler, in most every way
Ask me what you want to know?
What a journey it has been and the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight and they’re bound to guide my way.
When they’re shining on my life, I can see a better day
I won’t let the darkness in, what a journey it has been.
I have been to sorrow, I have been to bliss
Where I’ll be tomorrow, I can only guess.
Through the darkest desert, through the deepest snow,
Forward always forward, I go.
Forward always forward
Onward always up
Catching every drop of hope
In my empty cup
What a journey it has been.
All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.
this is my cousin's favorite song too. she's only 8 years old ha. hehe. she sang this on her 7th birthday wearing her sophisticated pink long gown last year, and i found myself teary-eyed. ang galing kasi! everytime i hear this song, i remember he. hindi si lea salonga! LOL.
Ganda rin kasi ng melody at lyrics nito. Di rin masyado mataas, di kailangan bumirit. 🙂
It's been a long time since I heard this song. I remember the first part pero pagdating sa refrain di ko na maalala. Mapakinggan nga uli ang video.
Year 2000 yata when this first came out. Halos national anthem ko ito sa videoke hehe.
I love this song. I've seen Lea sang this song in one of her concerts here in Los Angeles, California. I sing this song a lot hindi nga lang kasing ganda ng original…hehehehe!
Thanks for dropping by Lyn. Haven't heard her sing in person, I would love to. Di pa ako nakakapanood ng concert nya or any of her plays, puro sa TV at radio lang.
This is a great song, and Lea Salonga is a great singer.
Me thinks, any song that Lea sings will turn out fine 😉
You're absolutely right, she has a great voice kasi. Di nya kailangan sumigaw diba hehe.
Thanks for sharing. Ang galing taaga ni Lea. Pambato ng Pilipinas sa Hollywood. Hindi lang sya magaling na singer, very smart at intelligent pa.
Oo nga, I agree with what you said, that's why Lea is one of my fave Pinoy singers. 🙂
wow favorite ko rin po ung The Journey ni Ms Lea S. sobrang ganda po kasi….and till pinakikinggan ko parin po yan song na yan
