"Searching for the Ghost" as written by and Erika Wennerstrom....
Hotels and highway signs
Another book to pass the time
Empty cans and bottles lying
This room is almost like a shrine
To an idea and a place
We've all been looking for
We've been searching now forever
And it's right behind the door

And now I've been searching
Searching for the ghost
I saw an apparition once
A long, long time ago
Been searching now forever
And I've found it here today
And it's changed its meaning
But it still feels the same

Along the way we hit some bumps
Got cuts and bruises on our hearts
Always knowing where we wanna go
But still get lost in every part
Nothing's ever easy
Easy for me
That's the way it's always been
The way it seems to me

And now I've been searching
Searching for the ghost
I saw an apparition once
A long, long time ago
Been searching now forever
And I've found it here today
And it's changed its meaning
But it still feels the same

    General CommentThe lyrics read, "This room is almost like a shrine To an idea and a place We've all been looking for"... and it's "Always knowing where", not "so what's."

    That being said, I fucking love this song! To me it's an ode to being out on the road and the struggle to attain elusive, undefined success.
