Don't Stop Believin'
By Journey
Sung by Alex Newell, Damian McGinty Jr., Lindsay Pearce and Samuel Larsen
Type Homework Assignment
Episode Glee-ality

Don't Stop Believin was the Homework Assignment on the finale of the first season of The Glee Project, Glee-ality . It was performed by Alex, Damian, Lindsay and Samuel along with the former contenders of the season. It was originally sung by Journey.

Damian was stopped half way through the first few lines of the performance by Ryan Murphy, and the rest of the contenders were brought on to the surprise and joy of the final four. The other contenders then sang backup for the final four throughout the entire song.


Just a small town girl, livin' 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

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

Samuel and Lindsay:
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night

Alex and Damian:
Streetlights people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night.

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to the feelin'
Streetlights people

Don't stop!
