Miley Cyrus' Live Cover of Journey's "Faithfully" Will Give You Chills

This ballad is perfectly suited for The Voice alum's strong pipes. 

By Elizabeth Logan

Miley Cyrus is still ours...faithfully. The singer and former The Voice Coach belted out Journey's hit ballad during an intimate Christmastime performance at the famed Los Angeles hotel the Chateau Marmont, and she sounded so good. The song seems to be a favorite of Cyrus's, as she previously sang it during her 31st birthday celebration, also at the Chateau Marmont.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 25 premiere of The Voice Monday, February 26 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

In addition to her own material, Cyrus has a deep love of the oldies and frequently performs live covers of classics like "Jolene," "Take It To The Limit," "My Way" and "Maneater." Listen to her "Faithfully" rendition and you'll soon understand why.

What to know about "Faithfully" by Journey

Released in 1983, the power ballad is from the perspective of a rocker on the road, promising to be faithful to his woman back home. It's about how hard touring can be but also the joy of returning home. It was written in only a half hour by Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain.

The song is an especially apt choice for Cyrus, who's had her own up-and-down relationship with being on the road for her career. She's not currently touring and explained in a social media post, “This has nothing to do with a lack of appreciation for the fans & everything to do with I simply don’t want to get ready in a locker room. Which is the reality of life on the road…I just don’t want to sleep on a moving bus.” Thankfully, she still performs live, even around Christmas!

"Faithfully" by Journey lyrics

Highway run into the midnight sun
Wheels go 'round and 'round, you're on my mind
Restless hearts, sleep alone tonight
Sendin' all my love along the wire

They say that the road ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line, it's been you and me
And lovin' a music man ain't always what it's supposed to be
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours
Faithfully

Split of Miley Cyrus and the band Journey

Circus life under the big-top world
We all need the clowns to make us smile
Through space and time, always another show
Wonderin' where I am lost without you

And being apart ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours
Faithfully

Whoa-oh, oh-oh
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh
Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Faithfully
I'm still yours

I'm forever yours
Forever yours
Faithfully
