  4. 4. Do you ever feel like a plastic bag Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again? Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in? Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under? Scream but no one seems to hear a thing Do you know that there’s still a chance for you ‘Cause there’s a spark in you? You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine Just own the night like the 4th of July ‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh” As you shoot across the sky-y-y
  5. 5.

  6. 6. Baby, you’re a firework Come on, let you’re colours burst Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh” You’re gonna leave ‘em all in awe, awe, awe Boom, boom, boom Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon It’s always been inside of you, you, you And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough ‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework Come on, show ‘em what you’re worth Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh” As you shoot across the sky-y-y Baby, you’re a firework Come on, let you’re colours burst Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh” You’re gonna leave ‘em all in awe, awe, awe Boom, boom, boom Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon Boom, boom, boom Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

  8. 8.  Simile – A plastic bag is being compared to a person. This is effective because a plastic bag is a useless object when it is not used to carry goods.

Just as paper can easily be torn, a teenager’s life can easily be wrecked. Like a house of cards, SIMILE The fragile life of a teenager is compared to a construction made of playing cards. It has no permanence and strength.
