This song is, to me, a ballad because it's a sad song; it's a narrative, has a beginning, middle and end; this song by Bruno Mars contains imagery, parallel structure, similes, onamanopia, and alliteration!!!
Imagery:there's no religion that could save me no matter how long my knees are on the floor.(you can picture in your head that he is praying)Parallelism:to keep you by me side, to keep you from walking the door.(ex. "to keep you by.....""to keep you from...")Simile:just like the clouds my eyes will do the same if you walk away everyday it will rain...( just like the clouds raining everyday, he will cry everyday)
Onomanapia:ohh,but little by little watch me change their minds...("ohh..." is onomanapia ex. boom, zap..)
Alliteration:i'll pick up these broken pieces 'till i'm bleeding, if that'll make you mine...(i'll, 'till, bleeding, that'll)
