Demi Lovato – Skyscraper lyrics

[Verse 1]
Skies are crying, I am watching,
Catching teardrops in my hands.
Only silence, as it's ending, like we never had a chance.
Do you have to make me feel like there's nothing left of me?

[Chorus]
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


[Verse 2]
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.

[Chorus]
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
.

[Bridge]
Go run, run, run, I'm gonna stay right here,
Watch you disappear, yeah
.
Go run, run, run, yeah, it's a long way down,
But I'm closer to the clouds up here.

[Chorus]
You can take everything I have,
You can break everything I am,
Like I'm made of glass, like I'm made of paper

Ohh!
Go on and try to tear me down,
I will be rising from the ground,
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper!

[Outro]
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper,
Like a skyscraper.

    Every time I here this song I cry in tears. This song just touches my heart and I cry every time I hear it. I just can't help myself when I cry, I can't hold it in when listen to it. This song has a meaning to it. It means if someone puts you down and makes your life hard, you should just get back up and keep going and never give up. When I am depressed I always listen to this song because it always makes me feel a lot better! Love ya Demi keep on shining.

    I've heard this song many times. And its unique. But, this time its different. It has such a deep meaning. Right now, I'm broken. And now I can really feel the same that she felt while singing this. My eyes are flooding with tears but now I know I have to stay strong. Atleast now to let demi down. This song is beautiful. Soo meaningful. Its simply beautiful. I can feel all the pain for I'm already broken: '(

    I think the meaning of this song is.
    Even if people to make you feel weak and things like that don't give up on yourself fight them till the end because if you believe in urself and the things ur doin you will get it right and if you give up on yourself you will never have the great life you dream of having or the life you meant to have and you will stay weak forever. I felt this way before I felt weak and useless until I heard this song and payed attention annd I start growin stronger and stronger.

    For me it means you can stand up to anyone no matter how small or big. I want to do that to a lot of people and sometimes I do. Like on fri. I was on the bus and there was very few seats open, also the bus driver has a rule about boys can't sit with girls, I have a 5 year old with me (my brother which you are allowed to sit with) and the bus driver seperated us. The seat behind me starts to say" well i don't see y that girl was complaining so much there's a seat right there" but that seat had a boy in it who was not my relative so I told her off. And I felt great about it. Plus I have to sit with my bro you never know what he'll do.

    When demi was young people used to make fun of her because she had a weight problem and she started cutting herself and shes explaining how they already took enough of her life and now shes as tall as a skyscraper and wont let anyone put her down by saying some of the lyrics like go run. Etc. She had to go to rehab because of her problems and she is now showing you have to stay strong.
