Demi Lovato – Skyscraper lyrics

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?

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 yeah
Go run run run yeah it's a
long way down
But
I'm 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
Ohh
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

    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 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.

    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: '(

    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.

    There is a lot of pain, this is for being molested at the age of 5 by my older cousin, bullied from pre- school to high school and for my first boyfriend of 4 years who I loved and helped to find a better direction in life, who emotionally abused me and manipulated me and was n't there when I needed him the most and turned out to be a narcissist. Now it's one month since I kicked him out of my life, and apartment. The scars take a long time to heal, but I will rise above, like a skyscraper.
