Thanks for
Watching
"Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so."


"...his....his....his"
"...his...his...his..."

"You were red and you liked me because I was blue
You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky"
Each sticky note will contain several lines from the song "Colors" by Halsey. Each part of figurative language will be underlined and color coated. The figurative language will be explained on the proceeding slide.
"You were a vision in the morning when the light came through"
Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so
You said your mother only smiled on her TV
show
You're only happy when your sorry head is filled with
dope
I hope you make it to the day you're 28 years
old
You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
You're spilling like an overflowing sink
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
And now you're tearing through the pages and the ink
Everything is blue
His
pills,
his
hands,
his
jeans
And now I'm covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue
Everything is grey
His
hair,
his
smoke,
his
dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue
You were a vision in the morning when the light came
through
I know I've only felt religion when I've lied with
you
You said you'll never be forgotten 'til your boys are
too
And I'm still waking every morning but it's not with
you

You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
You're spilling like an overflowing
sink
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
And now you're tearing through the pages and the
ink

Everything is blue
His
pills,
his
hands,
his
jeans
And now I'm
covered
in the
colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue
Everything is grey
His
hair,
his
smoke,
his
dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue
This is an example of situational irony. Even though her brother never displays any sort of affection or love, he still loves her.
"...show...dope...old."
Show, dope, and old present an example of a impure rhyme. Since the words do not actually rhyme, but they are manipulated to be made to, it is impure..
"You're dripping like a saturated sunrise, you're spilling like an overflowing sink."
This line is an example of 2 different similes. They are classified as similes, because they're a comparison between two objects using the term like. The first is a comparison between the person and a saturated sunrise. The second is a comparison between the person and an overflowing sink.
"You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece"
This is an example of a paradox. The line contradicts itself by saying that the person is a masterpiece, even though they are ripped at every edge. However this does reveal some truth
as to how imperfect perfection does exist in this world.
"And now you're tearing through the pages and the ink"
This line is a metaphor because it reflects the way the character is feeling. It is not really tearing through the pages and the ink but simply dealing with the chaos of life.
This is an example of an anaphora. The word his repeats the same at the same time in the same place during the chorus. The repeating and time of the sound gives it this characteristic.
"Pulled apart at the seams"

This is an example of an idiom, because she is not literally being pulled apart at the seams. The person is just emotionally lost and falling apart.
"It makes me blue, It makes me blue"
This is another example of an idiom because the person's world is not really physically blue. The phrase, "Everything is blue," merely reflects the mood in the song.
"And he's blue, And he's blue"
This is yet another example of an idiom much like the one previously stated. The boy is not physically blue, his mood just matches that of the narrator.
This is an example of a metaphor. The phrase is comparing the person to a vision in the morning. It is a metaphor because it does not use the joining words, "like," or, "as."
"I know I've only felt religion when I've lied with you"
This is an example of an antithesis. The fact that the narrator compared feeling religion while lying reflects the exact opposite of each thing. Even though both items are opposite, they work together soundly in this phrase.
"You're dripping like a saturated sunrise You're spilling like an overflowing sink."
These are the same two similes that were shown in the first verse just repeated again. The first compares the person to a saturated sunrise, and the second compared the person to an overflowing sink.
"You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece"
This is the same paradox that was also represented int he first verse. The phrase contradicts itself, but yet reveals the truth behind the imperfect perfections.
"And now you're tearing through the pages and the ink"
This is an example of the same metaphor provided earlier. It explains how the character is not really tearing through the pages and the ink.
This is an example of an assonance. The repeating vowel
sound, "ih," identifies the phrase as an assonance.
"Pulled apart at the seams"
This is an example of yet another idiom. The narrator is not
literally being pulled apart at the seams, she is just emotionally lost.
"It makes me blue It makes me blue"
This is an idiom because the narrator is not physically blue.
The phrase simply reflects her mood in the song.
"And he's blue, And he's blue"
The boy is not really physically blue, his mood is just reflected as, "blue," just like the narrators is. This phrase is an idiom.
You were red and you liked me because I was blue
You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky
And you decided purple just wasn't for you

Everything is blue
His
pills,
his
hands,
his
jeans
And now I'm covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue
Everything is grey
His
hair,
his
smoke,
his
dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue
This is all a giant metaphor comparing the boy to the color red, and comparing the girl to the color blue, and the narrator was compared to a lilac sky.
"...his...his...his..."
This is an example of an anaphora because the word his appears at the same time in the phrase and repeats three times.
"Pulled apart at the seams"

This is the same idiom that is found throughout the song. The narrator is not really being pulled apart at the seams. Rather she is just emotionally confused.
"It makes me blue, It makes me blue"
This is once again an idiom because, the narrator is not physically blue, but her mental mood is.
"And he's blue, And he's blue"
Last but not least, we have a final repetitive idiom. "He," is not physically blue, but emotionally. His mood matches the narrator's.
"And now I'm covered in the colors"
This is an example of an alliteration because the repeating consonant sound, "c," is displayed throughout the phrase.
"...through...you"
This is an example of an impure rhyme because the words do sound like they rhyme, but they are not spelled so.
"And now I'm covered in the colors."
This is an alliteration due to the repetitive, "c," sound.
"...sink...ink"
Sink and Ink are an example of a pure rhyme. The rhyme is audibly and visually sound.
