#Lyrics Skyscraper-Demi Lovato

Skies are crying
I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence
Has an ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to
Make me feel like
There is nothing left of me

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

As the smoke clears
I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you
Feel better
To watch me while I bleed

All my windows
Still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Go run run run
I’m gonna stay right here
Watch you disappear ya yaa
Go run run run
Ya it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

(Like a skyscraper)
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

 

This is such a powerful song from Demi Lovato. I think this was the first like real song that I had heard from her that wasn’t Disney related and I absolutely loved it. I was in High School and as many of you know, that is an awkward time altogether.

Demi wrote two versions of this song (three if you count the spanish version) The first one was right before going into rehab and the second was when she left rehab. She liked the way the first one sounded better and that is the one we get to hear and I love it.

It is such a strong hopeful song. It says to me, no matter what you throw at me…I will keep trying to build myself up again. Like no matter how much my anxiety tries to make things harder for me, I will keep rising from the ground. I love this song and I love Demi even more for her journey. Her strength, her wisdom and just her.
