129 Words1 Page
The first reason, is figurative language is a key to comprehending a song. Figurative language interprets the main object to emphasize it´s meaning. For example, in Taylor Swift’s Blank Space she uses a simile by saying , “... I can read you like a magazine…”, she is trying to say that she knows what a male’s intention is. She continues interpreting the main object by using the hyperbole “...we’ll take this way too far it’ll leave you breathless or with a nasty scar…”, meaning their love can end in troublesome terms. At the end she states, “... love’s a game, want to play?...”. This metaphor is trying to say that love can be complicated like a game. No one would have known all this extra information without figurative language.
