Transcript of Poetry Project- Let Her Go by Passenger

Let Her Go by Passenger
"Only miss the sun when it starts to snow"

"But dreams come slow and they go so fast"
''Everything you touch, oh it dies"
"Only hate the road when you're missing home"
"Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast"
He uses personification by describing love and dreams as being objects by saying that they come slow and fast as if they were walking or running.
The theme of the song is losing a love and not realizing what you had or how much you actually appreciated the people you had in your life until they were gone.
He uses a hyperbole by describing that realistically things don't die when you touch them so it is not meant to be taken literally.
He uses a metaphor by comparing the road and his home, or in this case the fighting and the comfort in the relationship.
He uses onomatopoeia by using words to imitate sounds. This makes the song more interesting because it expresses feelings through sounds.
"Only know you've been high when you're feeling low"

Rhyme Scheme
The rhyme scheme of the first verse is bbbccc and the rhyme scheme of the second verse is dddbeee.

'Cause- Shows what the song writer is like and makes him seem modern.
"Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last"

He uses an oxymoron by saying that most people can't feel high, and low or happy and sad at the same time. It makes you think about the text more but at the same time makes it more humorous.
He uses alliteration by repeating the consonant sound of "s" which makes the lyrics flow better and makes it more fun to listen to.
"Oh oh oh no"
A rhyme scheme shows which lines connect and rhyme in a stanza and it creates a rhythmical beat to the verses.
You're not going to get anywhere in life or reach any of your goals if you don't put in any work or effort to achieve it.

"Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep"

He lost her not because he didn't love her at all or enough, but because he loved her too much.
