Christ In me

In this obsession with the things this world says make us happy

Can't see the slaves we are in all the searching all the grasping

Like we deserve much more than all these blessing we're holding

So now I'm running free into an ocean of mercy unending

So come and empty me

So that it's you I breathe

I want my life to be

Only Christ in me

So I will fix my eyes

'Cause you're my source of life

I need the world to see

That it's Christ in me

That it's Christ in me

Done with what holds me down the things I once was chasing after

Throw off these heavy chains that I have let become my master

So now I'm running free into an ocean of mercy unending

So come and empty me

So that it's you I breathe

I want my life to be

Only Christ in me

So I will fix my eyes

'Cause you're my source of life

I need the world to see

That it's Christ in me

That it's Christ in me

In this obsession with the things this world says make us happy

Can't see the slaves we are in all the searching all the grasping

So come and empty me

So that it's you I breathe

I want my life to be

Only Christ in me

So I will fix my eyes

'Cause you're my source of life

I need the world to see

Only Christ in me

Only Christ in me

Only Christ in me

Christ in me

In the song Christ in me, by Jeremy Camp, he uses figurative language to add feeling to his song. One example of this is when he says "throw off these heavy chains that I have let become my master. This is an example of personification because chains can not become your master. Another example of figurative language is "the things this world says makes us happy" This is an example of personification because the world can not speak. So for the song to have a good amount of emotion, Jeremy used figurative language.

Easy come, Easy go

That's just how you live oh

Take, take, take it all

But you never give

Should have known

You was trouble

From the first kiss

Had your eyes wide open

Why were they open?

Gave you all I had

And you tossed it in the trash

You tossed it in the trash, yes you did

To give me all your love

Is all I ever asked

What you don't understand

Is I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for you (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Say I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for ya baby

But you won't do the same

Black, black, black and blue

Beat me till I'm numb

Tell the devil I said "hey" when you get back to where you're from

Mad woman, bad woman

That's just what you are, yeah

You'll smile in my face then

Rip the breaks out my car

Gave you all I had

And you tossed it in the trash

You tossed it in the trash, yes you did

To give me all your freakin' love

Is all I ever asked baby

'Cause what you don't understand

Is I'd catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Say I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for ya baby

But you won't do the same

If my body was on fire, ooh

You'd watch me burn down in flames

You said you loved me you're a liar

Cause you never, ever, ever did baby...

Doo doo doo doo doo do,

Doo doo do,

Doo doo doo do,

Baby baby baby baby baby baby

'Cause I'll catch a grenade for ya

Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I'd jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah) Oh, oh

Say I would go through all this pain

Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for ya baby

But you won't do the same.

In the song Grande, by Bruno Mars, he uses figurative language to show expression. One example of figurative language used in this song is "Take a bullet straight through my brain." That form of figurative language is a hyperbole. Another form of figurative language is "I'd catch a grande for ya" That form of figurative language is a hyperbole. In the end of making the song, Bruno Mars used examples of figurative language to give out emotion for the song.

Ooh oh ... Yeah

You can be the peanut butter to my jelly

You can be the butterflies I feel in my belly

You can be the captain and I can be your first mate

You can be the chills that I feel on our first date

You can be the hero and I can be your side kick

You can be the tear that I cry if we ever split

You can be the rain from the cloud when it's storming

Or you can be the sun when it shines in the morning

Don't know if I could ever be

Without you 'cause boy you complete me

And in time I know that we'll both see

That we're all we need

'Cause you're the apple to my pie (pie)

You're the straw to my berry (berry)

You're the smoke to my high (high)

And you're the one I wanna marry (marry)

'Cause you're the one for me (for me)

And I'm the one for you (for you)

You take the both of us (of us)

And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

Baby me and you

We're the perfect two

You can be the prince and I can be your princess

You can be the sweet tooth I can be the dentist

You can be the shoes and I can be the laces

You can be the heart that I spill on the pages

You can be the vodka and I can be the chaser

You can be the pencil and I can be the paper

You can be as cold as the winter weather

But I don't care as long as we're together

Don't know if I could ever be

Without you 'cause boy you complete me

And in time I know that we'll both see

That we're all we need

'Cause you're the apple to my pie

You're the straw to my berry

You're the smoke to my high

And you're the one I wanna marry

'Cause you're the one for me (for me)

And I'm the one for you (for you)

You take the both of us (of us)

And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

Baby me and you

We're the perfect two

You know that I'll never doubt ya

And you know that I think about ya

And you know I can't live without ya

I love the way that you smile

And maybe in just a while

I can see me walk down the aisle

'Cause you're the apple to my pie

You're the straw to my berry

You're the smoke to my high

And you're the one I wanna marry

'Cause you're the one for me (for me)

And I'm the one for you (for you)

You take the both of us (of us)

And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

We're the perfect two

Baby me and you

We're the perfect two

In the song Perfect two, the song writer uses figurative language to support the theme of the song. One example of figurative language is " your the apple to my pie" This is an example of a metaphor because it is referring to him being like an apple in her pie, as in he completes her. Another example of figurative language is "your the smoke to my high" This is an example of a metaphor because for her to get that happy feeling he has to be there which is saying that he is like the happy feeling in here when someone they get high. All in all the song writer used figurative language to support her theme in the song.

I walked away.

The cold winter night.

My skin felt like Ice standing outside.

Waiting on the buss to show.

I said my last good byes and got on the buss when it showed.

Tears rolled down my face as the buss rolled out.

Gone for as long as I can picture.

I don't know when I will see my sister again.

But now its a new start.

Now on the Kansas with a sun as bright and beautiful as the norther lights.
