There is personofication in the song “fireflies”

Posted: March 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

personification is giving human characteristics to non living things. for example the light ran through the room or the stars danced in the night sky. There is personification in the song “fireflies” by Owl City. the lyrics that have personification in it are as follows: cause I’d get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs, as they try to teach me how to dance, and I got misty eyes as they said farewell.  This is personification because the song is giving human characteristics to fireflies, because fireflies can’t give hugs, and can’t teach people how to dance or wave farewell. Also the personification does give life to the fireflies which make the song more interesting.
