"Stone Cold" by Demi Lovato

Stone cold

Stone cold

You see me standing

But I'm dyin' on the floor

Stone cold

Stone cold

Maybe if I don't cry

I won't feel anymore

Stone cold

Baby

God knows I try to feel

Happy for you

Know that I am

Even if I can't understand

I'll take the pain

Give me the truth

Me and my heart

We'll make it through

If haappy is her

I'm happy for you

Hmm, mm-mm, mm

Stone cold

Stone cold

You're dancing with her

While I'm staring at my phone

Stone cold

Stone cold

I was your amber, but now

She's your shade of gold

Stone cold

Baby

God knows I try to feel

Happy for you

Know that I am

Even if I can't understand

I'll take the pain

Give me the truth

Me and my heart

We'll make it through

If happy is her

I'm happy for you

A hyperbole is used in the third and fourth line, when it says " you see me standing, but I`m dyin` on the floor". She`s not really dying on the floor, she she is just being stared at by her ex while she is standing there, but she feels like she is dying.

"Oceans" by Hillsong

You call me out upon the waters

The great unknown where feet may fail

And there I find You in the mystery

In oceans deep

My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise

My soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters

Your sovereign hand

Will be my guide

Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me

You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise

My soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior(6x)

Yeah

Oh Jesus yeah, my God

I will call upon Your Name

Keep my eyes above the waves

My soul will rest in Your embrace

I am Yours and You are mine

Personification is used when the artist says "your grace abounds in deepest waters". This doesn't actually mean grace is jumping around on waves, it just means that Gods grace can do anything and change your life if you commit your soul to him.

"Hollow" by Tori Kelly

I don't wanna be the last man standing

I don't wanna be the lonely one

Picking petals when the party's over

No, it's not any fun

And you know this

So hold me

Wrap me in love, fill up my cup

Empty and only your love can fill up my cup

Cause I'm hollow

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

I don't wanna be the first one folding

I don't wanna be the joker heart

Tell me, darling, will you understand me?

And not show me your cards?

Cause I'm paper-thin

And you, you make me whole again

So hold me

Wrap me in love, fill up my cup

Empty and only your love can fill up my cup

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

Cause I'm hollow

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

I confess (yeah), my weakness

Til you pick up the parts that are broken

Pour out your perfection on me now

And hold me

Wrap me in love, fill up my cup

Empty, cause only your love can fill up my cup

So hold me

Wrap me in love, fill up my cup

Empty and only your love can fill up my cup

Cause I'm hollow

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

Cause I'm hollow

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

Cause I'm hollow (yeah)

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh (oh yeah)

Cause I'm hollow (I'm hollow)

Yeah, I'm hollow, oh oh oh

Metaphors are used in this song, an example would be " cause I`m paper thin". This isn't really a metaphor, but this is the only thing that represented somewhat a metaphor. It implies that it she is fragile and is thin.

"Life" by Regan Olsen

Life is like a book

There is always a beginning

And there is always an ending

We have different sets of chapters in our life

Those may be, moving into a new house

Or going to college

Getting married

Having kids

Life is a roller coaster full of ups and downs

Your ending could end up good, or in other cases bad

It all depends on the choices you make in your life that determine your outcome

We are the paper

The pencil is your decisions that make up what is on the paper and how you can live your life
