How Deep is Your Love - Calvin Harris

I want you to breathe me in

Let me be your air

Let me roam your body freely

No inhibition, no fear

How deep is your love?

Is it like the ocean?

What devotion? Are you?

How deep is your love?

Is it like nirvana?

Hit me harder, again

How deep is your love? (3)

Is it like the ocean?

Pull me closer, again

How deep is your love? (2)

Open up my eyes and

Tell me who I am

Let me in on all your secrets

No inhibition, no sin

How deep is your love?

Is it like the ocean?

What devotion? Are you?

How deep is your love?

Is it like nirvana?

Hit me harder, again

How deep is your love? (3)

Is it like the ocean?

Pull me closer, again

How deep is your love? (3)

So tell me how deep is your love could go deeper

So tell me how deep is your love could go deep

So tell me how deep is your love could be go deeper

So tell me how deep is your love could go deep

(How deep is your love?)

So tell me how deep is your love could be go deeper

So tell me how deep is your love could go deep

(How deep is your love?)

So tell me how deep is your love could be deeper

(Pull me closer, again)

So tell me how deep is your love could go deep

How deep is your love? (3)

So tell me how deep is your love could be go deeper (2)

(How deep is your love?)

So tell me how deep is your love could be go deeper (2)

In the song the songwriter uses a similes in the lyrics "Is it like nirvana" and "Is it like the ocean" to compare love to nirvana and an ocean. They compare love to nirvana by asking if the love is lacking enjoyment and emotions like nirvana, which is the state of neither suffering, desire nor sense of self. Then they compare love to an ocean by asking if the love is deep and very strong like an ocean.

Viva La Vida - Coldplay

Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion

I used to rule the world

Seas would rise when I gave the word

Now in the morning I sleep alone

Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice

Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

Listen as the crowd would sing

"Now the old king is dead, long live the king"

One minute I held the key

Next the walls were closed on me

And I discovered that my castles stand

Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

Once you'd gone there was never

Never an honest word

And that was when I ruled the world

It was a wicked and wild wind

Blew down the doors to let me in

Shattered windows and the sound of drums

People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait

For my head on a silver plate

Just a puppet on a lonely string

Oh, who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

I know St. Peter won't call my name

Never an honest word

But that was when I ruled the world

Ohh...

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing

Roman cavalry choirs are singing

Be my mirror, my sword and shield

My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain

I know St. Peter won't call my name

Never an honest word

But that was when I ruled the world

In the song the song writers use Allusion in the lyric "I hear Jerusalem bells ringing" to give the reader a feeling of the setting and give them an image in their mind. In the lyric "Be my mirror my sword and shield" the songwriters use metaphors to compare a person to a mirror, sword and shield and explain how a person can reflect someone or something else and how people can be used as a weapon and a form of defense.

My Self-Written Poem

Time is always passing

And there’s nothing we can do

We spend time playing

And doing work too

Watching a beautiful sunrise

Go by like a school year

It vanishes before my eyes

And I wish it would reappear

We can never escape time

It’s always chasing us through our lifetime

Some people wish it would pass by faster

And others wish it would go by slower

But there’s nothing we can do

About the way time changes you

In this poem a simile is used in the line "Watching a beautiful sunset go by like a school year" to explain how a sunset goes away quickly like how a school year seems to go by very quickly. Then in the line "Its always chasing us through our lifetime" personification is used to explain how people are always rushed by a time limit throughout their lives.
