Literary Analysis over "Let It Be" by the Beatles?...........Help!?

Okay. So I'm supposed to find Imagery, Figurative Language (Metaphor's, similes), Sound devices, and the theme.

For imagery I put "And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light...shine until tomorrow, let it be"

I have no Idea what to put for FigLang.

And so far for a sound device I have assonance, and a long E sound at the end of every line.

Can someone give me any tips and help me with the rest? Thank you!

When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,

speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,

speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,

there will be an answer, let it be.

For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,

there will be an answer. let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,

shine until tomorrow, let it be.

I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,

speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....

    Figurative language means something that isnt literal. So "broken hearted people" is figurative because their hearts arent actually broken (they would be dead haha). Also "in my hour of darkness" could be considered figurative or metaphorical.
