Analysis of the name – HOME and first line analysis <ul><li>The song written by Chris Daughtry is called home gives the impression that the song will be about what he feels about his home. </li></ul><ul><li>The first line: </li></ul><ul><li>Im staring out into the night, trying to hide the pain </li></ul><ul><li>Second line: </li></ul><ul><li>Im going to a place where love, and feeling good don’t ever cost a thing. And the pain you feels a different kind of pain. </li></ul><ul><li>The opening shot of the video is Daughtry sitting alone along side a railway track looking down. The next shot is a shot of loads of people running and crowding into a concert arena which seems happy and gives the impression of a happy atmosphere. The shots that follow this one are shots on the tour bus and workers setting up the stage for the act to come on. </li></ul><ul><li>When the lyrics in the song start the shot immediately turns to Chris Daughtry who is in a dressing room alone and staring into a mirror with a glum look. Then Chris on stage alone still not looking happy. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Lyrics co inside with the video because from the shots we see Chris seems like he really feels like he wants to go home and go where he doesn’t have to worry or care about anything because love is always there. </li></ul><ul><li>Throughout the video the camera flicks between clips on the band backstage, the audience and Chris alone. </li></ul><ul><li>The shots on the band backstage always seem to give an impression that it is a great atmosphere and place to be but most of the shots do not feature Chris they follow the rest of the band. </li></ul><ul><li>The audience shots focus heavily on the fun and excitement that they are feeling. </li></ul><ul><li>The shots which follow Chris give a very different impression of the life he is living on tour. When you put the lyrics with the video the song it works fully because when you hear the lyrics and see the expressions and actions of the people in the video you can almost feel yourself feeling those emotions. </li></ul>
Song Summary <ul><li>The song is meant to be the kind of song that is very emotive. </li></ul><ul><li>The song is meant to make the listener feel about feelings from home and what home means to you and to everyone else. </li></ul><ul><li>But most of all I feel the song is supposed to show that when bands go on tour for a long time away from home, how difficult can be coping without loved ones like children and wives. A lot of people don’t realise what bands have to go through when people go to concerts and how lonely a life on tour can be and this song makes you see that. </li></ul>
