Sad Song

We the Kings

You and I, we're like fireworks and symphonies exploding in the sky

With you, I'm alive

Like all the missing pieces of my heart, they finally collide

So stop time right here in the moonlight

'Cause I don't ever wanna close my eyes

Without you, I feel broke

Like I'm half of a whole

Without you, I've got no hand to hold

Without you, I feel torn

Like a sail in a storm

Without you, I'm just a sad song

I'm just a sad song

With you, I fall

It's like I'm leaving all my past and silhouettes up on the wall

With you, I'm a beautiful mess

It's like we're standing hand and hand with all our fears up on the edge

So stop time right here in the moonlight

'Cause I don't ever wanna close my eyes

Without you, I feel broke

Like I'm half of a whole

Without you, I've got no hand to hold

Without you, I feel torn

Like a sail in a storm

Without you, I'm just a sad song

You're the perfect melody

The only harmony I wanna hear

You're my favourite part of me

With you standing next to me

I've got nothing to fear

Without you, I feel broke

Like I'm half of a whole

Without you, I've got no hand to hold

Without you, I feel torn

Like a sail in a storm

Without you, I'm just a sad song

Without you, I feel broke

Like I'm half of a whole

Without you, I've got no hand to hold

Without you, I feel torn

Like a sail in a storm

Without you, I'm just a sad song, I'm just a sad song

The meaning of the simile in this song is that their love is like fireworks because it's beautiful but dangerous at the same time.

The meaning of the hyperbole in this song is that he doesn't want to close his eyes because the moment is beautiful and he doesn't want to miss any of it.

The meaning of the metaphor that I found is that without his girlfriend he doesn't feel like a whole person and that he's complete with her there with him.

The fireworks from the simile I found

Rock On

Tucker Beathard

Girl I really did mean it when I wished you the best

Good to hear you're killin' it way out west

Finding your own way didn't take too long

And baby rock on, rock on

It's getting tough keeping up with where you are

Postin' pics like some big Hollywood star

Guess every club in town is playin' your song

And baby rock on, rock on

Rock on like you don't miss me

Rock on like it's all good

Rock on 'til you forget me

Just like you said you would

I gotta tell you I can't stand

The thought of someone else holding that hand

I should have put a rock on

Yeah I do a lot of thinking about wantin' you back

But I don't know about all dolled up like that

If my homegrown country girl is long gone

Then baby rock on, rock on

Rock on like you don't miss me

Rock on like it's all good

Rock on 'til you forget me

Just like you said you would

I gotta tell you I can't stand

The thought of someone else holding that hand

I should have put a rock on

Yeah, rock on

I saw your hashtag diggin' on some new dude

Girl you left me with nothing else to do

Rock on like I don't miss you

Rock on like it's all good

Rock on 'til I forget you

Just like I wish I would

I gotta tell you I can't stand

The thought of someone else holding that hand

I should have put a rock on

And baby rock on, yeah I should have put a rock on

Yeah baby rock on

Yeah I really did mean it when I wished you the best

The meaning of the hyperbole I found is that she's having a good time, not literally killing something.

The meaning of the simile I found in this song is that she's posting pictures as if she's famous and she really isn't.

The meaning of the metaphor I found is that he regrets not asking her to marry him, so instead she left and he regrets letting her go.

The ring he wished he had given her.

From The Ground Up

Dan + Shay

Grandma and grandpa painted a picture

Of 65 years in one little house

More than a memory, more than saying "I do"

Kiss you goodnights and "I love you's"

Me and you, baby, walk in the footsteps

Build our own family

One day at a time

Ten little toes, a painted pink room

Our beautiful baby looks just like you

And we'll build this love from the ground up

Now 'til forever it's all of me, all of you

Just take my hand

And I'll be the man your dad hoped that I'd be

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

This life will go by

In the blink of an eye

But I wouldn't wanna spend it without you by my side

The clouds are gonna roll

The earth's gonna shake

But I'll be your shelter through the wind and the rain

And we'll build this love from the ground up

Now 'til forever it's all of me, all of you

Just take my hand

And I'll be the man your dad hoped that I'd be

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

Someday we'll wake up with thousands of pictures

Of 65 years in this little house

I won't trade for nothing the life that we built

I'll kiss you goodnight and say, "I love you still."

And we'll build this love from the ground up

For worse or for better

And I will be all you need

Beside you I'll stand through the good and the bad

We'll give all that we have

And we'll build this love from the ground up

The hyperbole that I found means that he will love her until he dies and even after, meaning forever.

The metaphor that i found means that he will be there for her through everything, not that he's actually her shelter.

The personification that i found says that the clouds are going to roll, but clouds can't roll, what it really means is that there's going to be storms that come through and pass over.

The house they live in.

The Flower

By shelby witherspoon

She was a flower

A flower with power

She was very tall

Taller than them all

She had always wished to be well

The Flower
