Similes/metaphors in a song
Skyscraper by Demi Lovato
Vevo prevented it from being viewed on certain sites so I can't embed. :P
Skies are crying
Personification: she used it to represent how sad she was.
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Simile: She is comparing her brokeness to a torn paper or shattered glass.
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
Metaphor: She is comparing herself overcoming her problems to a skyscraper rising from the ground above the rest.
