Abstract

Literature is writing which expresses and communicates thoughts, feeling and attitudes towards life. The writers intended their works to be permanent, nothing less than immortality. Since it shares experience, illumination, and knowledge; people want to keep it forever in order to make life more wonderful and worthy. Poetry is a form of literature. It deals in matters beyond direct statement in meanings conditioned by emotional attitudes and its intention is to evoke the full flavor and impact of experience. Lyric is a brief subjective poem strongly marked by imagination, melody, and emotion creating a single unified impression. Song is a lyrical poem adapted to musical expression, usually short, simple, sensuous, and emotional. The purpose of this study is to figure out the kind’s figurative language and the meaning that are found in “Truly Madly Deeply” and “Tears of Pearls” in Savage Garden’s First Album. This study uses descriptive research design, since no special treatment as experimental research. Objective approach is applied in this study, because she takes it as individual entity without taking care of its effect to the audience or author’s life. The object of the study here is Savage garden’s songs and the data derived from listening and reading the lyrics of Savage Garden’s songs. The objects of study are focused on the two songs for Savage Garden’s First Album, namely:” Truly Madly Deeply” and “Tears of Pearls”. The result of this study show that the two songs consist of: two metaphors, two hyperboles, two symbols, two personifications, one metonymy and one simile. The first song “Truly Madly Deeply” is talking about love, the writer falls in love with the girl and wants to live forever with her. Second song “Tears of Pearls” is talking about the fight between a pair of lover and it hurt girl’s feeling and loose her feeling to the composer. So, the composer describes this song as the expensive experience that will never be forgotten.
