Poetic Devices




So much he can say

You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain

Baby, To me, you're like a growing

Addiction that I can't deny

Won't you tell me, is that healthy, baby?

But did you know that when it snows

My eyes become large

And the light that you shine can't be seen?

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey

New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

by Billy Joel

Slide 33

Some folks like to get away

Some folks like to get away

Take a holiday from the neighborhood

Hop a flight to Miami Beach

Or to Hollywood

But I'm talking a Greyhound

On the Hudson River Line

I'm in a New York state of mind

I've seen all the movie stars

In their fancy cars and their limousines

Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens

But I know what I'm needing

And I don't want to waste more time

I'm in a New York state of mind

It was so easy living day by day

Out of touch with the rhyth and blues

But now I need a little give and take

The New York Times, The Daily News

Ode to my Family

Ode to my Family

by the Cranberries

Slide 35

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo .

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo .

Understand the things I say, don't turn away from me,

'Cause I've spent half my life out there, you wouldn't disagree.

Do you see me? Do you see? Do you like me?

Do you like me standing there? Do you notice? Do you know?

Do you see me? Do you see me? Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where's when I was young,

And we didn't give a damn,

'Cause we were raised, To see life as fun and take it if we can.

My mother, my mother,

She hold me, she hold me, when I was out there.

My father, my father,

He liked me, oh, he liked me. Does anyone care?

Understand what I've become, it wasn't my desing.

And people ev'rywhere think, something better than I am.

But I miss you, I miss, 'cause I liked it,

'Cause I liked it, when I was out there.

Do you know this? Do you know you did not find me.

You did not find. Does anyone care?
