Similes in a song

The songs are "Fireworks" (Katy Perry) , "Love you like a love song" (Selina Gomez) and "Call me maybe"(Carly Rae Jepson)

In Love you like a love song, the simile is

I-I love you like a love song baby.

In Fireworks, the similes are

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag (1)
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin (2)
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in
Do you ever feel already buried deep? (3)
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?

In Call me maybe, the simile and hyperbole is

I'll trade my soul for a wish (1)
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now our in my way.
Your stare was holding (2)
Rip jeans skin was showing
Hot night wind was blowing
Where do you think you are going baby.

The meanings are

1) Means that the person wants to be free, being carried by he wind of the future, being himself.
2) Means that the person is really at his end of his wits, so if he gets another blow, he will be in danger.
3) Means that the person is really in trouble, but no one comes to help him even though he asked others.

Love you like a song:
Means that the person loves the person so much so that the love line between seems like a love song that never ends.

Call me maybe:
1) She really wants that wish so badly that she is willing to give up part of her life to get it done.
2) The stare was so nice that she wants to stare at it for a really long time, but in this case, it is the singer           who is holding the stare, not the actor.
