"Heartless"

Kanye West

In the night, I hear 'em talk

The coldest story ever told

Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless

How could you be so heartless?

Oh, how could you be so heartless?

How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo

Just remember that you talkin' to me though

You know need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo

I mean after all the things that we've been through

I mean after all the things we got into

Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain't told me

Hey yo, I did some things but that's the old me

And now you wanna get me back and you goin' show me

So you walk around like you don't know me

You got a new friend, well I got homies

But in the end it's still so lonely

In the night, I hear 'em talk

The coldest story ever told

Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless

How could you be so heartless?

Oh, how could you be so heartless?

How could be so Dr. Evil, you bringin' out a side of me that I don't know

I decided we weren't goin' speak so

Why we up three A.M. on the phone

Why does she be so mad at me for

Homie I don't know, she's hot and cold

I won't stop, I won't mess my groove up

Cause I already know how this thing go

You run and tell your friends that you're leaving me

They say that they don't see what you see in me

You wait a couple months then you gon' see

You'll never find nobody better than me

In the night, I hear 'em talk

The coldest story ever told

Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless

How could you be so heartless?

Oh, how could you be so heartless?

Talkin', talkin', talkin', talk

Baby let's just knock it off

They don't know what we been through

They don't know 'bout me and you

So I got something new to see

And you just goin' keep hatin' me

And we just goin' be enemies

I know you can't believe

I could just leave it wrong

And you can't make it right

I'm goin' take off tonight

Into the night

In the night, I hear 'em talk

The coldest story ever told

Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless

How could you be so heartless?

Oh, how could you be so heartless?

The author uses hyperbole to express how he feels about a girl. He says " he lost his soul to a woman so heartless" but he didn't actually lose his soul, and the woman isn't actually heartless, its not possible for her to believing without a heart.

"Dark Horse"

Katy Perry

I knew you were

You were gonna come to me

And here you are

But you better choose carefully

'Cause I’m capable of anything

Of anything and everything

Make me your Aphrodite

Make me your one and only

But don’t make me your enemy, your enemy, your enemy

So you wanna play with magic

Boy, you should know whatcha falling for

Baby do you dare to do this

'Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse

Are you ready for, ready for

A perfect storm, a perfect storm

'Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine

There’s no going back

Mark my words

This love will make you levitate

Like a bird

Like a bird without a cage

But down to earth

If you choose to walk away, don’t walk away

It’s in the palm of your hand now baby

It’s a yes or no, no maybe

So just be sure before you give it up to me

Up to me, give it up to me

So you wanna play with magic

Boy, you should know whatcha falling for

Baby do you dare to do this

'Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse

Are you ready for, ready for

A perfect storm, a perfect storm

'Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine

There’s no going back

She’s a beast

I call her Karma

She eat your heart out

Like Jeffrey Dahmer

Be careful

Try not to lead her on

Shawty’s heart was on steroids

'Cause her love was so strong

You may fall in love

When you meet her

If you get the chance you better keep her

She swears by it but if you break her heart

She turn cold as a freezer

That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor

She can be my Sleeping Beauty

I’m gon’ put her in a coma

Woo, damn I think I love her

Shawty so bad

I’m sprung and I don’t care

She got me like a roller coaster

Turn the bedroom into a fair

Her love is like a drug

I was tryin'a hit it and quit it

But lil’ mama so dope

I messed around and got addicted

So you wanna play with magic

Boy, you should know whatcha falling for

Baby do you dare to do this

'Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse

Are you ready for, ready for

A perfect storm, a perfect storm

'Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine

There’s no going back

The author uses similes to describe how shes "coming at" someone. He says " 'cause i'm coming at you like a dark horse" so hes comparing how shes coming at him to a dark horse. Pretty much saying be ready because she's "coming at him" hard and fast.

The author uses onomatopoeia's to make sound affects. The author says "boom boom pow" is the song and "boom boom boom" to help relate whats going on.

Nature- Kiara Montey

Trees are super tall,

In the big, wide, huge forest.

Taller than buildings.

Animals are fun.

Many different kinds.

They are everywhere.

Water is pretty.

Beautiful like the sky.

Both are very blue.

Nature is kind,

Nature is beautiful,

Nature is the best.

I used similes and metaphors. I used a simile to tell how beautiful the ocean is by comparing it to the sky. I used a metaphor to explain how tall trees are by comparing it to buildings.
