  • Hi rock fans, how are you?

  • I'm Paul Emerencio, creator of "Rock com Legendas"

  • And I usually give my opinion about the lyrics in the end of the videos

  • So, here we go:

  • I think this song is about the turbulent youth that Freddie Mercury had

  • As everyone knows, he wrote the lyrics

  • And he chose not to clarify the meaning

  • He said for each draw their own conclusions

  • But Brian May has said in an interview

  • That Freddie Mercury put a lot of himself into that song

  • According to the biography of Freddie

  • He moved frequently during childhood and adolescence

  • Not only houses, but also countries

  • This explains the "easy come, easy go", in my opinion

  • Freddie was always a bit effeminate

  • And you know that children in school don't forgive

  • At 8 years old, he was sent alone in a ship to study in India

  • Now imagine how it should be you arrive in a new country

  • In a new school

  • Being bullied every day, and without your family around

  • Later, in adolescence

  • He and his family have fled from a civil war in Zanzibar

  • And they settled in London

  • In short

  • The youth of Freddie Mercury was insane

  • And it's possible, or probable

  • That at some point he thought about giving up everything

  • Give up on life

  • Some words in the lyrics appear in the Qu'ran

  • As "Bismillah", which means "In the name of Allah"

  • These words are from Freddie's parents religion

  • And when he says in the lyrics:

  • will you let me go?”

  • And the answer is: “Bismillah! No, we will not let you go

  • For me this part shows the support that Freddie received from his family

  • If in fact he went through a period of instability

  • Many people think this song is about homosexuality

  • Or bisexuality of Freddie Mercury

  • I think it could be truth

  • But unlike most

  • I don't believe this to be the central theme of song

  • For me, the point is all difficulties he faced in childhood

  • And that includes, of course

  • The prejudice due to his sexual orientation.

Is this the real life?
