How does it feel to be without a home

Rolling Stone ranks Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" as the number 1 song of all time. I've probably heard this song a thousand times without fully comprehending the lyrics.

It tells the story of someone who has lost everything, home, wealth, prestige, and finds themselves with no place to go. Something I have never experienced.

Here is the chorus.

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You can watch him sing it here:

I suggest you read the lyrics carefully along with the video.


"Like A Rolling Stone"

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody's ever taught you how to live out on the street
And now you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
A complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?


Assignment

Earworm : (noun) /ˈɪəwəːm/ a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person's mind. I learnt a new word some time ago  and it made me think about how a particular tune or a line from a song often keeps playing in our minds. It can be triggered when we see, hear or sometimes even smell something out of the blue. This week, we're going on one of our more fun challenges - take a photo that shows us your take on a line from a song. This is a wide open challenge and can be interpreted in many ways and it's all up to you. You can recreate a scene from a lyric, or display a feeling that you feel the singer is giving over. This is a line from a song, it doesn't need to be the Title of the song. Also, do remember that we're a global community so feel free to take a shot that's relevant to a song in a language of your choice - local or otherwise. Naturally, please write a little in the description so your fellow Framers have an idea about how the image and the song lyric speak to you. Music encompasses all aspects of life - the fun, the romantic, the crazy, the melancholy, the thoughtfulness and oftentimes socially relevant topics and I'm certain this week's album will cover the same spectrum.
