Closer

The Chainsmokers

Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you

I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay

Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them

But I hope I never see them again

I know it breaks your heart

Moved to the city in a broke down car *

And four years, no calls

Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar

And I can't stop

No, I can't stop

(Chorus*) So, baby pull me closer in the backseat of your rover ****

That I know you can't afford

like that tattoo on your shoulder they’re comparing what they can’t afford to their tattoo

Pull the sheets right off the corner

Of the mattress that you stole

From your roommate back in Boulder

We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older

You look as good as the day I met you ***

I forget just why I left you, I was insane

Stay and play that Blink-182 song

That we beat to death in Tuscon, okay

I know it breaks your heart

Moved to the city in a broke down car

And four years, no call

Now I'm looking pretty in a hotel bar

And I can't stop

No, I can't stop

Chorus*

We ain't ever getting older (we ain't ever getting older) (x3)

We ain't ever getting older (x2) **

*/** This is a hyperbole because you can't move at all in a broken car/ you can't stay young forever. They're trying to express that they feel young having fun. *** This is an example of a simile because they're comparing how the person looks the first time they met, which was good. **** This is a good example of imagery because it helps us visualize someone being pulled in the backseat of someone else's rover.

Firework

Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag

Drifting through the wind

Wanting to start again *

Do you ever feel so paper thin

Like a house of cards

One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep

Six feet under screams

But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you

'Cause there's a spark in you

(Chorus*) You just gotta ignite the light

And let it shine

Just own the night

Like the fourth of July

'Cause baby you're a firework **

Come and show 'em what you're worth

Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"

As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework

Come and let your colors burst

Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"

You're gonna leave 'em falling down down down

You don't have to feel like a waste of space

You're original, cannot be replaced

If you only knew what the future holds

After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed

So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road

Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow

And when it's time, you'll know

(Chorus*)

Baby you're a firework

Come and let your colors burst

Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"

You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe

Boom, boom, boom

Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

And it's always been inside of you you you

And now it's time to let it through

'Cause baby you're a firework

Come and show 'em what you're worth

Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"

As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework

Come and let your colors burst

Make 'em go "oh, oh, oh!"

You're gonna leave 'em all in awe awe awe

* This is an example of a simile because it's comparing you to a plastic bag that's just floating through the wind and saying how sometimes you can feel like you're worth nothing. ** This is a metaphor because it's making a direct comparison to yourself and a firework. They are trying to express that sometimes you can surprise yourself and all you might need is a little jump start.

Best Day of My Life

American Authors

I had a dream so big and loud

I jumped so high I touched the clouds *

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

I stretched my hands out to the sky **

We danced with monsters through the night ***

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

I'm never gonna look back

Woah, never gonna give it up

No, please don't wake me now

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

I howled at the moon with friends

And then the sun came crashing in

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

But all the possibilities

No limits just epiphanies

Wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

I'm never gonna look back

Woah, never gonna give it up

No, just don't wake me now

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

I hear it calling outside my window

I feel it in my soul (soul)

The stars were burning so bright

The sun was out 'til midnight ****

I say we lose control (control)

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

This is gonna be, this is gonna be, this is gonna be

The best day of my life

Everything is looking up, everybody up now

This is gonna be the best day of my life

My li-i-i-i-i-ife

* This is a hyperbole because you can't actually jump and touch the clouds. It's just showing their excitement of their dreams. **(*) These are also a hyperboles because you can't actually stretch your hands to the sun or dance with monsters. **** The sun doesn't stay out until midnight, they're just trying to explain that it felt like it because they were having the "best day of their life."

CHEERLEADING

Cradles that touch the sky *

Having our smiles as big as the world on **

Entertaining the crowd with our stunt routines

Extensions that take your breath away

Raucous laughter and great times at team dinners

Leapfrogs that catch the fans eyes

Endless jam sessions with the girls on the road to the games

Adding spirit to football and basketball games

Diving face first on the occasions you're dropped

Individuals coming together to build a stunt house

Nights where we stay up to practice for our pep rallies

Getting repetitive cheers stuck in everyone's head :)

* This is a hyperbole because you don't really touch the sky I'm just trying to express that you get thrown really high up. ** This is an example of a simile because it is comparing our smiles to world trying to tell how our smiles are big in front of the crowd.
