10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record--- YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS Let me run with you tonight/I'll take you on a moon- light ride/There's someone I used to see/But she don't give a damn for me Drugs don't solve problems CNS COLUMNIST I " But let me get to the point/Let's roll another joint/And turn the radio loud/I'm too alone to be proud/You don't know how it feels/You don't know how it feels/To be me People come, people go/Some grow youngJsome grow cold/I woke up in between A memory and a dream My old man was born to rock/He's still trying To beat the clock/Think of me what you will/I've got a little space to fill So let's get to the point/Let's roll another joint/And let's head on down the road/There's somewhere I got to go/And you don't know how it feels/No, you don't know how it feels To be me Written and Sung By Tom Petty Copyright (c) 1994 by Gone Gator Music (ASCAP) Tom Petty's music has a cer- tain sharpness• His lyrics offer a cutting edge that avoids metaphor and image, presenting straightfor- ward emotion. "You Don't Know How It Feels" is his latest hit and is off his recent "Wildflowers" CD. The cassingle focuses on one of life's most diffi- cult feelings -- stark and gnawing loneliness. The character in the song is adrift in life. He says, "Let's head on down the road, there's some- where I got to go." However, there is no sense that the "somewhere" has anything to do with purpose or meaning in life. His principal way of escaping from his pain appears to be to "roll another joint and turn the radio loud." He feels "too alone to be proud" and says to the other person, "Think of me what you will." We are not told what pain left him with such a loss of direction. No one plans to end up this lonely. Somewhere in life, his hopes must have died. All that is left is his sense that "you don't know how it feels to be me." Yet life pieced to- gether by smoking joints literally goes up in smoke. Drugs can't fill the loneliness that he feels. What could help this individual is a new start. This possibility is contained in each day if we can be open to receive it.

While these feelings can also enable a person to see that things change unless he plans for -- and acts to different future. Also, a new start often means out beyond the loneliness.
