There aren't any, he doesn't even know what a metaphor is and the Patrick Wolf line is talking about the cliches boy are supposed to follow it wasn't the best one to quote, I think I like Wolf Song better but its the only one that came to mind.

And not one thing about cancer?

"because i have learned that nothing is as pressing / as the one who is pressing would like you to believe / and i'm content to walk a little slower / because there's nowhere that i really need to be".

Taking things slowly instead of as most doctors suggest living your life to the fullest the one whos pressing etc, duh and last verse especially touches on it

we will always be the way we were that night
you crawled inside of me
and you slept in my blood the way you sleep now
the quietest hush has consumed this house
and when the doctors have gone and you sweat through the bed
with the pictures and the pills they piled around your head
just rest now, and in a moment you will know everything
was it all a dream?
it’s too vague now to recount.
an outline of the one you loved in a life that was that not longer will be stands above you as you sleep.


And he started it by attacking my taste in lyrics, so he can be blamed for it not me despite what he says.

met·a·phor [met-uh-fawr, -fer] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun
1. a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.” Compare mixed metaphor, simile (def. 1).
2. something used, or regarded as being used, to represent something else; emblem; symbol.
[Origin: 1525–35; < L metaphora < Gk metaphorá a transfer, akin to metaphérein to transfer. See meta-, -phore]

How exactly is 'here it is quiet and much cooler than the house is / and there's no clocks or phones to wake us up' not a metaphor for something(Haven't examined all the lyrics so I don't know what)?

wow, you can use dictionary.com?

doesn't change the fact that you explicitly said

"its a bunch of metaphors with no meaning"

despite the fact that you cannot show me a single metaphor in that excerpt. are we really supposed to believe you know what a metaphor is? you did this same thing with 'melody', give it up kid.

You see in the garden there typically isn't any phones or clocks hooked up, theres nothing metaphorical about that at all, there isn't a metaphor in that entire thing bit I quoted. Its imagery

No, you didn't. You asked how it wasnt a metaphor.
It isn't a metaphor, certainly not in the context presented, for anything.

so he literally means that he and his lover will fall into the mud if it rains. Wow. And that he's actually talking about how it's much cooler outdoors than in the house? Well then, my bad I suppose I was wrong on the metaphors.

You didnt have any other context to go by. There was a lyric posted, that had no metaphors.
You can't just extrapolate, there is either a metaphor or there isn't.

Its okay though, they teach you what a metaphor is in 7th grade, so you'll know in a few years...I'm still learning.
