Friday Five :: Songs about home

Friday Five :: Songs about home Home is something that I've spent my life searching for, but rarely found. Not that I haven't lived in many places, the home I grew up in, my Grandparents' home, my first apartment, subsequent apartments to follow, a house in Salt Lake City, a house in Michigan, a shared tiny space in Chicago, to the house I live in now, and a few in-between, but most have not felt like home to me. My restless, gypsy spirit lights fires in my insides that urges me to keep moving, to keep searching, to keep changing, and most days I follow it. The only problem is, the constant search keeps me in an state of limbo that I can never feel settled within. If I am always in that self-created "purgatory", ever waiting for a goal to be accomplished, or a destination reached, only to create a new one, then how can I ever find the feeling of home I seek?
