EXAMPLE Figurative Language Project
Transcript of EXAMPLE Figurative Language Project
I know this is a hyperbole, because she is exaggerating by claiming to love someone more than a thousand years and a thousand more than a thousand.
This lyric means that she loves the person more than she can really express. Also, a person cannot die every day because they love someone. We can only die once.
"One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more"
by Christina Perri
"I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry"
I know this is a simile, because it is comparing the person to a bird.
The lyrics "I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night" means the person is going to fly around as a bird would fly around. People cannot fly as a bird would fly.
I know this is an idiom, because it is an expression people use that cannot happen.
To turn up out of the blue means to show up unexpected.
Finding Figurative Language in Song Lyrics
Figurative Fun Filled Project
by Mrs. Fulbright
"Don't stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, Imma fight
'Til we see the sunlight
TiK ToK, on the clock
But the party don't stop no
Whoa-oh oh oh
Whoa-oh oh oh
I know this is onomatopoeia, because the words boom and clap are words that are the sound they make.
I know this is a metaphor, because it is comparing a person's heart directly to a stereo.
"My heart's a stereo
It beats for you, so listen close
Hear my thoughts in every no-o-o-te"
by Gym Class & Adam Levine
"My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around"
by Idina Menzel
I know this is alliteration, because there are repeated beginning sounds. The words soul and spiraling, frozen and fractals, and the words all around all repeat beginning sounds.
"I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it."
Figurative language is..
"Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance"
by Owl City
I know this is personification, because lightning bugs cannot teach someone how to dance. Only people can do that, so it is giving the bugs human qualities.
The words in the lyrics mean there are so many lightning bugs surrounding them that it feels like there are a thousand bugs. It also means that the bugs are moving in a way that looks like they are trying to dance.
The lyrics mean the person is using music and the beat of the music on the stereo to show the beating of the heart, representing their love for a person.
