Hyperbole: (0:39) I’d catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I’d jump in front of a train for ya
You know I’d do anything for ya
Explanation: The song Grenade released in 2010 and immediately became a hit. At (0:39) Bruno Mars sings, I’d catch a grenade for ya, Throw my hand on a blade for ya, I’d jump in front of a train for ya, You know I’d do anything for ya. This is an example of a hyperbole, or a complete exaggeration of something. He is saying that he would do anything for the love of his life, even if it means taking his own.

I like the amount of description you put into this, and the song is very interesting because it refers to so many things that are very odd, but the song is still very energetic. Overall it was good.
I liked the song alot and it is a great example of a hyperbole. This song also uses very abstract ways of looking at life
