31 And who I am X "I Won't Give Up" I think the song "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz is about how no matter what is going on in their relationship or lives they will always try to work things out. He is trying to tell her that he will always try to be the best man he can be in her life. This quote, "Well, I won't give up on us even if the skies get rough" shows that he won't give up on their relationship no matter what happens. I think this song is lyric poetry, because it expresses the thoughts and feelings of the poet. For example the poet says in lines twelve and thirteen, "I'm giving you all my love, I'm still looking up" This would express how the poet feels towards someone. Another reason this would lyric poetry is because they use "I" talking about their own thoughts and feelings. The quote in lines twenty-three and twenty-four, "I don't wanna
be someone who walks away so easily, I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make" also shows that this song is lyric poetry because they are talking about the type of person they want to be. "*When I look into your eyes, it's like watching the night sky,*or a beautiful sunrise"
In lines two and four I found an end rhyme and a full rhyme. I also found a masculine rhyme.
"And just like them old stars, I see that you've come so far"
In lines six and seven I found an end rhyme and a full rhyme. I also found a masculine rhyme.
"*'Cause even the stars they burn, some even fall to the earth, *we've go a lot to learn"
In lines eighteen and twenty I found an end rhyme and a slant rhyme. I also found an masculine rhyme.
"*I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make, our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use,* the tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake"
In lines twenty-four and twenty-six I found an end rhyme and a full rhyme. I also found an masculine rhyme.
"And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend"
In line twenty-seven I found an internal rhyme and a full rhyme. I also found a feminine rhyme.
"I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not"
In line thirty I found an internal rhyme and a full rhyme. I also found a masculine rhyme. Rhyme Types Figurative Language
Line 2, 3, & 4: "When I look into your eyes, it's like watching the night sky, or a beautiful sunrise" This would be a simile because they're comparing the sparkle of the night sky to someone's eyes. They're also comparing the calmness of a sunrise to the calm feeling they get when looking into that person's eyes. This would also be a simile because it uses the word "like".

Line 6 & 7: "And just like them old stars, I see that you've come so far" This would be a simile because they're comparing old stars and how much they changed to the person and how much they've changed using the word "like".

Line 1: "Hmmm... Hmmm... Hmmm... Hmmm" This would be onomatopoeia because it is a sound word. Sound Devices Line 19 & 20: Alliteration with the letter "L". "Some even fall to the earth, we've got a lot to learn"

Line 21 & 22: Alliteration with the letter "W". "God knows we're worth it, no, I won't give up"

Line 23, 24, 26, & 28: Alliteration with the letter "K". "*I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily, *I'm here to stay and make the difference I can make, our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use,* the tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake, and in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend,* for us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn" Line 26: "The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake" This would be a colloquialism because by saying they have a lot a lot at stake they really mean they have a lot to lose.

Line 28: "For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn" This would be a colloquialism because by saying they didn't break or burn they really mean they didn't fall apart.

Line 11, 33 & 42: "Even if the skies get rough" This would be a euphemism because it saying if the skies get rough would be like saying if things get hard. Colloquialisms, Euphemisms, and Allusions This lyrical song uses figurative language to help describe the poet's feelings on their relationship. This song is about a couple in love and the relationship between them. The song goes on to say that you learn a lot about yourself while trying to make a relationship work. It also says that you can't give up on things no matter how hard it gets. Conclusion Elements not Included Hyperbole
