Here, Cam addresses the pursuit of joy and how to enjoy the ride. Written by the singer with her usual songwriter partner Tyler Johnson along with Hillary Lindsey, the acoustic guitar-laced ballad finds her pondering what it means to be truly happy.
It's the wild unknown It's a ball and chain It's a no-end destination but we keep driving anyway Is that future that we're chasing worth the right nows that we miss On this road to happiness
Cam said: "I've met unhappy successful people and happy 'unsuccessful' people. There's no one road to happiness, it doesn't exist, it's an illusion. Happiness is now and it's up to you to feel it in the moment. This song is me working through all this, and trying to be present and happy in my own way."
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
