Transcript of Battle Scars - Literary Devices

Battle Scars - Guy Sebastian ft. Lupe Fiasco
That's 'cause you're at war with l ve
Hope the wound heals but it never does
IDIOM
You're at war with l ve
These battle scars don't l k like they're
fading
Don't l k like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle...
Simran Matharu
Never let a wound ruin me
But I feel like ruin's wooing me
HYPERBOLE
Arrow holes, they never close from Cupid on a shooting spree
ALLUSION
Feeling stupid 'cause I know there ain't no you and me
But when you're trying to beat the odds up
IDIOM
Been trying to keep your nods up, and you know that you should know

And let her go, but the fear of the unknown
Holding another lover strong, sends you back

into
With no Tom Hanks to bring you home
A lover not a fighter
On the front line with a poem
Trying to write yourself a rifle
HYPERBOLE
Maybe sharpen up a stone,
to fight the tanks and drones of you being alone
RHYME
I wish I never l ked, I wish I never touched
ALLITERATION
I wish that I could stop loving you so much
'Cause I'm the only one that's trying to keep us together
When all of the signs say that I should forget her
PERSONIFICATION
I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
'Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me it's over
These battle scars, don't look like they're
Don't l k like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
fading
These battle scars, don't look like they're
fading
Don't l k like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
REFRAIN
These battle...
(Then just leave)
You shouldn't have but you said it
(And I hope you never come back)
It shouldn't have happened but you let it
Now you're down on the ground screaming medic
IMAGERY
The only thing that comes is the post-traumatic stresses
That's why you're in a locker full of hurt
The enemy within and all the fires from your friends
The best medicine is to probably just let her win
HYPERBOLE
IDIOM
'Cause you set me on fire
I've never felt so alive, yeah
HYPERBOLE
Hoping wounds heal, but it never does
That's because you're at war with love
And it's impossible to shake it
And I'm at the point of breaking
See, you hoped the wound heals, but it never does
That's cause you're at war with love
Hoped it heals, but it never does
That's cause you're at war with love!
I wish I couldn't feel, I wish I couldn't l ve
I wish that I could stop, 'cause it hurts so much
And I'm the only one that's trying to keep us together
ALLITERATION
These battle scars, don't look like they're
Don't l k like they're ever going away
I ain't never gonna change
