A Song Analysis: The FIGURES OF SPEECH in Ric Segreto's "Give Me a Chance"







 GIVE ME A CHANCE
   by Ric Segreto (RIP)

I need you
Is all that I can say
But deep inside of me
You'll know I want you more each day
But time won't let me have the chance
So I've got to see you even at a glance

II.

I know, it's hard for you to see
Exactly how much you mean to me
Since it's just a one way street
And I'm the only one who's on it
No one knows the way but me

Cho:

I love you can't you hear me
Oh can't you please see through me
Oh babe I need your love so badly
It's no lie so please believe me
In my heart you'll see the real me
You just gotta give me a chance

III.

Well since I got that off my chest
All I need to let you know
Is I really did my best
Keep this feeling inside
But there's just no place to hide
So please be my love

Chorus:

I love you can't you hear me
Oh can't you please see through me
Oh babe I need your love so badly
It's no lie so please believe me
In my heart you'll see the real me
You just gotta give me a chance

Give me a chance

Give me a chance


The Figures of Speech in this song:


1. PERSONIFICATION


But time won't let me have the chance 

"Time" is given the human trait of giving a chance


2. HYPERBOLE


In my heart you'll see the real me 

This line is exaggerated
