Can you spot the Literary devices in "Daughters" by John Mayer?

I found very little on my own and hope you can help. It is for a creative writing assignment here are the lyrics. Please and Thank you!

***I would have picked something else but all the good ones like the river, windmills of your mind, lost in the stars and lucy in the sky with diamonds were already spoken for.*** So i thought either this or "hey santa" by carnie wilson (with holidays so near)

I know a girl

She puts the color inside of my world

But she's just like a maze

Where all of the walls all continually change

And I've done all I can

To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands

Now I'm starting to see

Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Oh, you see that skin?

It's the same she's been standing in

Since the day she saw him walking away

Now she's left

Cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Boys, you can break

You'll find out how much they can take

Boys will be strong

And boys soldier on

But boys would be gone without the warmth from

A womans good, good heart

On behalf of every man

Looking out for every girl

You are the god and the weight of her world

So fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Update:

"is heart in hands" hyperbole?

and does " You are the god and the weight of her world" count as personification since it's an abstract idea
