Transcript of Wide Awake - Figurative Language

Alexis Crosby and Erin Grant Wide Awake Citations Paradox because
gravity can hurt and be sweet Hyperbole because you
cant fall from a cloud Hyperbole because
you cant physically
be born again The lyrics came from http://www.lyricsfreak.com/k/katy+perry/wide+awake_21005238.html

The writers are Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Bonnie Leigh Mckee, Hnery Russell Walter Assonance because
the "ee" sound repeats Im wide awake
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
I'm wide awake
Need nothing to complete myself - nooohooo True rhyme because
me, see, seems rhymes I'm wide awake
And now it's clear to me
Thats everything you see
Ain't always what it seems
I'm wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long Hyperbole because
you cant be wide and awake Im wide awake (x3)
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I'm wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn't dive in
Wouldnt bow down
Gravity hurts
You make it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
Im letting go tonight
(Yeah I'm) Falling from cloud nine I'm wide awake
Yeah, I am born again
Outta the lion's den
I dont have to pretend
And it's too late
The story's over now, the end Hyperbole because you cant have an open heart Personification because a
star cant be read. That is
a human quality, to read True rhyme because then and in rhyme True rhyme because
den and pretend
rhyme I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldnt dive in
Wouldnt bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
Till I woke up on
On the concrete Eye rhyme because "ow" make it look like it should rhyme Assonance
because the
"ow" sound
repeats Falling from cloud nine
Clashing from the high
I'm letting go tonight
I'm falling from cloud nine Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
I am trying to hold on
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
I'm not blind anymore This is assonance,
true rhyme, and onomatopoeia because "um" sound repeated for rhyme and assonace. The words are noise sound so onomatopoeia.
Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
(Ya' know) I'm letting go tonight
Im falling from cloud nine

I'm wide awake (x5)
