Life is a Highway
Transcript of Life is a Highway
I chose Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts for it's many uses of figurative language. The figurative language that Rascal Flatts uses is Simile, Metaphors, Idioms, and Hyperbole's.
To make sure that we know what each one means, here are the definitions of each figurative language.
Simile- Comparing two unlike things using "like" or "as".
Metaphor- Comparing two unlike things using only "is" and not "like" or "as".
Idiom- Common phrases that we use.
Hyperbole- Extreme exaggeration.
Life is a highway
Life is a highway
This piece of figurative language is an idiom. This is a common phrase that we use. We use this in the sense that life has it's twist and turns, it's ups and downs. It shows that life doesn't stay the same forever. Soon there is going to be a bend in the road, where things will get better. This is also a metaphor. This is a metaphor because it is comparing life and a highway, two completely different things, using "is" and not "like".
I wanna ride it all night long
This piece of figurative language is a hyperbole. Rascal Flatts states that he would ride the "highway" all night long. This is a hyperbole because he isn't going to ride it all night long. Soon, he will have to take a break.

Life's like a road that you travel on
This piece of figurative language compares two different things, life, and a road, using the word "like" and "as". This is a simile
There ain't no load i can't hold
This piece of figurative language is also a hyperbole. Rascal Flatts states that he could hold any load. This is a hyperbole because he most likely cannot hold every load. some are most likely too heavy for him to carry.
