Transcript of Figurative Language in Skyscraper

Figurative Language in Skyscraper by Demi Lovato Skies are crying... I am watching. Personification giving the sky the human ability to cry. You can break everything I am, like I'm made of glass. Like I'm made of paper. Simile comparing the singer to paper and glass. She uses this simile to show that she feels as fragile and breakable as glass. It shows that she feels weak and easy to break. Also, she feels as delicate as paper, one crumble and the paper is wrinkled/messed up forever. I will be rising from the ground- Like a skyscraper Simile comparing her rising from the ground, like a skyscraper. The artist feels as though now she is firm, stronger, solid and now she can rise from the pain, almost as tall as a skyscraper.
All my windows, still are broken, but I'm standing on my feet Metaphor comparing her brokenness, to broken windows but the artist says now she can stand on her feet, meaning the pain does not affect her any longer. I'm closer to the clouds up here. Hyperbole because she is saying that she feels higher/happier then she did before and that she feels as if she's closer to the clouds, but obviously she is exaggerating so the person can understand the feeling.
As the smoke clears
I awaken and untangle you from me
Would it make you feel better to watch me while I bleed Demi is using imagery to make you picture the smoke and her untangling herself, as she states in the song. She always helps you to imagine how hurt she is because of her talking about how she is bleeding. She is also using imagery. The smoke is representing all of the problems and issues she was having and now that the smoke is cleared, she "awakens" to a new outlook and new feelings. Also, the rain is a symbol for the Artist's tears.
