Liner Notes: 

Klaus said: Thank you, Doug, for these fine set of lyrics. It was a joy and pleasure to put them into music. I went with a very basic man with a guitar approach but I think it fits. This was a midnight session and hence my vocals are at times, especially at that one point a little extra husky. Which was nice ( said he with a Fast Show voice. ).

Doug said: Thank you, Klaus for another wonderful song. Your music and vocals give it the feel of a classic!

Lyrics: 

Searching
I’m searching
I’ve been searching
For so long
Still don’t know
What I’m hoping to find
But I know
I’ll know
When I find it

Every road leads somewhere
Makes it hard to choose
And any road you take
You win some and you lose

Searching
I’m searching
I’ve been searching
For so long
Still don’t know
What I’m hoping to find
But I know
I’ll know
When I find it

Every door you open
Is like a brand new day
And every heart you capture
Wonders if you’ll leave or stay

Searching
I’m searching
I’ve been searching
For so long
Still don’t know
What I’m hoping to find
But I know
I’ll know
When I find it

And now I have some news for you
News both good and bad
I’ve made a lot of women cry
But you’re the best I ever had
I’m heading out tomorrow
But you won’t wake up blue
you’ll be leaving too

Searching
We’re searching
We’ve been searching
For so long
Still don’t know
What we’re hoping to find
But we know
we’ll know
When we find it

I know
I’ll know
When I find it

Great work guys! I like Klaus's approach to Doug's lyrics. I had to repeat the 2nd verse because I wasn't sure how to interpret what I was reading/hearing initially. I got it (it's pretty late for me; I shouldn't be up).

Nice tune Mr Klaus. A bit different. Nice lyric again by Crisp. Good collab.

Looking at the lyrics...nice opening searching for something. Nice verse with good rhymes and storytelling. Chorus again followed by another nice verse that says what is happening. Very nice bridge...the last line you'll be leaving too is a killer. Chorus and outro...very good Doug. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Nice guitar playing intro...vocals now...sound good...good melody. Very nice guitar playing. Chorus again now...can clearly understand all of the lyrics. Chorus again...bridge now...I'm heading out tomorrow....you'll be leaving too. Chorus...very nice by both! Yeah, it's a strong message and I think the guitar playing really stood out for me because I have been playing for a long time and I can't do that. Good job on that Klaus.

Like the guitar, strong intro.
"Every road leads somewhere". Yep, makes perfect sense.

I can't quite decide whether the song is profound or light-hearted...maybe both, and thats okay!

Aw, very sweet story. I especially enjoyed this line: Every door you open/Is like a brand new day. I like the familiar tone and thoughtfulness of the searching theme and how it turns into "we" at the end. Klaus' melody complements the lines very naturally and sincerely. I enjoyed the rolling guitar playing too. Beautiful song!
