1. The line “We lived on a combination of irregular paychecks, hope, fear, and government surplus food” is a hyperbole and zeugma. The word that creates the zeugma is the word lived, as the narrator uses the word lived to mean different things in the same context.

The song was written as a message to the antagonist, the woman that the speaker loved, and now, is no longer with; he wants answers and he wants her to know how he feels and just how much she hurt him.

I liked the song because I realized that if something changed in the relationship, it would affect the human behavior, and that was clear in song. The words that she was saying and the show that she was performed while singing is all about one concept.

From the song, I understood that what changed never came back

In addition, the repetition of the line “Till there was you” creates a lyrical base to which the previous line, referring to not being able to appreciate symbols of live, can return.
I chose to do a rhetorical analysis on the music video “You Belong With Me” By Taylor Swift. This song is about Taylor Swift have a crush on this boy who is her best friend when she’s in high school. The boy she likes has this girlfriend who is nasty to him and doesn’t understand him like she does. Given away from the song title, Swift believe that her friend belongs with her. This music video uses both kairos and pathos throughout the music video to convey the song’s message.
She felt “light and good in the warm sun” (L8). To her young and inexperienced mind, “nothing existed for her but her song,” (L8) which just goes to show how oblivious and careless she is to her surroundings and worlds greater than her own.
