This study aims to analyse the types of figurative language and contextual meaning contained in Alan Walker’s song Lily. The researcher used Perrine's (1992) figurative language theory with 12 types: simile, metaphor, personification, apostrophe, symbol, paradox, metonymy, synecdoche, hyperbole/overstatement, irony, allegory, and litotes/understatement. Dash's (2008) context and word contextual meaning theory are used to analyze the contextual meaning with local context and sentential context. Literally, Lily’s song tells of a little girl who lives behind the castle walls and is afraid of the big, wide world. Therefore, this study will answer the formulation of the problem in this research, namely (1) what figurative languages are found in Alan Walker’s song lyrics (2) what are the meanings in the context described in the figurative language in Alan Walker’s song lyrics
