Figurative language in songs.

By Guadalupe Mayorga Castanon

In one direction's "Story of my life" Zayn say's

"But baby running after you is like chasing the clouds"

That is simile. It is describing that its hard to get the girl. In this case One Direction is explaining what impact this person is having on them.

In the song "Titanium" the singer Sia say's

" I'm bulletproof " that is a metaphor because when she say's she is bulletproof she is stating that words and actions do not hurt her.

"Knock You Down"
by Keri Hilson

In this song Kanye west says

"You see the hate that they servin' on a platter So what we gonna have,

dessert or disaster?" this is a Alliteration.
