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.

    I just love this song. I think it's about someone who has been through a lot of "junk" in their life b/c of how other people have treated them, but they know they are stronger than what these people think. For me, it's about having christ being the center of my life & knowing that no matter what others say about me or how they treat me, I still have him & he's all I need. Demi may or may not have meant that part with this song, but for me, it's how I take it.

    To me this song stands for overcoming your deepest fears, and sadly for many people that would be bullying, sour relationships, or just feeling like you're good enough, when in reality you are perfect just the way you are. It took me way longer than it should have to do as she says in the song, and rose above all these things. To actually realize that the people who were hurting me were just as afraid as me. All I can hope for is that one day we can all rise above hurting each other, and just get along. Then we could be a beautiful city of skyscrapers.

    It helped me get through a horrible part of my life, its still going on but its all getting better, thanks to you demi lovato! Reading and watching your interviews and listening to this song made me feel like I am an important part of this world! I even stopped cutting myself! Wish I could get rid of these scars though. Thank you demi lovato! Without you I don't think I would have survived. I mean people running me over just because they think its funny isn't good! I saw your first interview at the hospital acctually!

    You always keep trying to break me and my spirit, and sometimes you get close to actually doing it. It makes me think about all my faults and I kind of hate myself for those faults but as I look farther I see that those things, and you and your words, can only make me stronger. It hurts but I know that these faults make me great and unique, I am strong like a skyscraper.

    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.

    This song is completely come from demi. When she was struggling, and she began to cut herself, because of bullying. Things got so bad, and she felt as if it was the end. But she rose above it, and its like shes saying to the bullies, they can take everything she has, and break everything she is, but she going to stay strong, keep doing what shes doing, and shes turned out so much better than those tramps which are bullies.!

    This song describes the loss a person feels when he or she loses their loved one, especially if their loved one doesn't want them anymore. The feeling is terrible, that only those who have been through it can understand. This is a song for the heartbroken. It relates to the pain they feel but it also reminds them that they can stand up once again and get over this feeling of hopelessness and frustration.

    The meaning to this song is: when you are stripped of everything you have. Told you are not worth it and should be thought of, but in the end you are not made of the things these people think they are taking, you are made of somthing that is much deeper than your skin and the clothes you put on. You can be removed of all things but still be the person you were before this happened.

    It means that no one can bring you down, they try to, but you are who you are and if they don't like it, tell yourself this, "your special in a way nobody will understand. They'll try to bring you down because their jealous. They don't understand that without you their lives will be different. They can tear you to pieces by words but not with actions, they try to, but will never, because your strong and you have a characteristic that no one has. You're special" they can take things away but they will never take your dignity. Show them your strong and when they know you are, they'll find out they were wrong to do so. I really love this song.

    Its not about her being bullied.
    It's about the press and all the bad publicity she got and the way people were on the internet so she was cutting and become bulimic.
    Even though I love this song and think it's completely beautiful I think she should have seen it coming a little more - I mean how much do they warn you about this stuff, what famous person doesn't get horribly torn down by people on the internet, michael jackson? One of the most famous singer dancer songwriter and choreographer of all time - the press believed he molested kids, that's kind of worse.

    This song is really amazing. Demi didn't make a "comeback" she was never gone. She just needed a break to catch herself before she fell too hard. I'm glad she received the help she needed. "Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper". You say and do whatever you want, but you can't break me is basically what she's saying in that line. I love how strong Demi is. All the success she gets, she truly deserves. Unbroken is amazing just like her.

    I was severely abused when I was really young. Actually from the time I was born until I was 10 years old. I am now 16, and stronger than ever. So this is what I think when I hear this song. Telling my abusers I am now stronger, and I didn't let what happened to me ruin my life. They tried to tear me down and they did not succeed.
    I posted this before but I wasn't logged in. So I posted it again logged in.

    That no matter what you go through, fall through, or hurt yourself on. Love, lies, pain. No matter what. You always have the chance to come out on top. You can make it through anything. You can change someone's day, life, smile. You can change yourself. But never stop being you. In every instance. There's times that you feel low, alone, and restless. But it doesn't mean that it's over. You can. Be you. And you can over come anything.

    I was bullied for a long time, things changed though. I would always cut myself when they bullied me, but now I don't even bother to read the messages a second time like I used to. Now I help other kids who get bullied at my school, a friend and myself started an antibully organization, and we have beem able to get dozens of people to understand how wrong it is. Thanks to this song I started to realize the bullying only hurts me when I let it. This song (to me) means that if you believe in yourself, that if you believe that you are beautiful, or anything people say you arent, then you can't be brought down.

    What it means to me is somewhat different. It has two sides for me. It's a sad slow song, yet gives you a message of not giving up and getting away from those who hurt you or have hurt you. It's telling me that you can break me, my happiness, but you won't ruin my life and I will rise more than someone who is different. At the beginning, it's like someone is making you feel worthless but towards the end, it's saying i'll rise like a skyscraper. It's close to the skies, it's up high and you can't tear me down as long as I'm up here.

    It means to be you, and to always stay strong no matter how people make you feel. Always stay true to yourself. Be a skyscraper and stand strong no matter who is trying to rain on your parade. Let them try to make you feel down and make them try to make you fall apart but stand tall and strong with power and love. Don't change because someone wanted to make you feel like crap.

    This song means that no matter how bad you've been hurt in your life, you can always choose to stand up and go on. Leave those who hurt you behind you and go on with your life. I can relate to that song because I've been bullied at school for several years and I suffered very much. I was about to give up when I understood that I wasn't the only one who was going through this. I decided to stay strong. I think that people don't realize how badly thay can hurt us sometimes. But I went on with my life and today I am happy. My heart goes out to all those who are going through bad time like that. You are stronger than what you think and you will go through this but those who hurt you are mean people and they will never understand this.

    I haven't liked demi's songs before rehab, but let me just say that when this song came out I wasn't thinking it would be this good. Honestly I teared up a little. This song is so deep and powerful, no matter who tries to make you feel bad, you've got to remember that you are you and nobody on this planet can make you feel like you are useless. Well done, demi! :)

    But skyscraper also means never give up when you fail try again you learn fro that experienced if you say something bad about someone else you learn not to say it ever again bc you know how it feels to be the one left out it had to happen at least once in ur life n ya it not the best feeling in the world. But it also means when ur feeling down and ur friend or anyone you know cs you and try to help take that bc you know that she is my best friend in the whole world she helped me wen I was down and that is wht skyscraper meant to me.

    I have suffered of depression since I was 8 when my mom left my dad. I was bullied all through elementary school. + and things got worse online. Cyberbullying washave a story barely similar to your's. A huge cause of my depression. I was called fat, lardo, and many things that were negative towards my weight. After a while, I just stopped eating and I made myself throw up. I started cutting when I was 10. My mom noticed my extreme weight loss and took me to my doctor. I was tested and the results were not great. I was diagnosed of three things. My doctor looked at me and said "demi, you're bipolar, you have bulimia, and you're anorexic. " he explained what all that was, and I just lost it. When I was 13, I came home from school and got on facebook. One of the girls that bullied me posted on my wall. It said "demi, you're a fat skank. Go die. " I wasnt surprised. She always told everyone I had a fake virgin act. It was humiluating. People commented and said alomost the same things. I cried for a few hours and then tried to kill myself. My mom walked in on me while I tried and took me to the emergency room. I never had one more suicidal thought. But I did continue to cut. I'm 15, and still a virgin. I just didn't understand why they were so mean. I thought there had to be something wrong with me for them to say that stuff.

    This song tells you that people are going to bring you down but you have got to be strong enough and rise! And have you ever realized that it is the few in life that was pushed around, are the ones to actually go higher or achieve something in life. Don't let people get to you, that's all they want to do, that should make you raise your game! Tiffani bonner.

    The meaning of this sng can't be explained, but I have just a couple of things to say. Demi lovato is really sad singing this song. Like most of us are, we should all give thanks to demi lovato for eing such an amazing song writer. Even though its 2012 I still listen to this song thinking how much hurt demi lovato went through. She is my favourite singer and she has more than just thanks form me we should all be thankful to god for people like her ;(

    I think its showing her true feeling like how she wants to break down and run away but she know that isn't going to solve anything, so no matter what anyone does or says it won't bring her down she isn't made of glass or paper she is so much stronger and no one can break the person she is! Doesn't listen to peoples negative opinions has her life focused on and that's what she's going to follow no matter what:) x

    I suffer with ed (eating disorder) I'm an anorexic, and this song, it's like my fight song. I've suffered since I was in elementary. And I've been fighting. It's not just about people that hurt you. It's about the things that you go through. It doesn't matter what it is. You have the power to overcome anything, even when you think you can't. What I have is an illness, but I'm going to be a skyscraper and rise no matter what. I'm going to fight and get better. This song has any meaning to anyone, and it doesn't matter what it is. This song is meaningful to me. I'm 19 years old, and I'm still suffering, but I'm fighting.

    I think that the meaning of this song is that weather you are facing bullying like she did, or something entirely different that takes an equally huge emotional toll on you, you are still worth it and can rise to be so much bigger and better than you originally thought you could be if you only take the time to think of yourself as a strong person who is unstoppable. Basically, you can do anything even though other people say you can't. You just have to believe in yourself and bounce back.

    This song is the most uplifting ever. After a life full of struggle and mishaps, demi has captured each emotion I felt from the bottomless pit I thought I was in, to me dusting off myself and rising to be more than anyone could imagine and standing tall and strong. I can't explain the warmth I feel in my heart when I listen to this. It's such a beautiful song that touches the heart of anyone who hears it. And anytime I'm faced with a challenge I listen to it and I am reminded how far I've come and nothing that comes my way can is too much to overcome.

    This song means so much to me! I've dealt with depression and it's brought me down for so long, this song helped me get out of the deep hole I was in. I decided that I was going to be better than the depression that was taking me down, I was going to rise above it and live my life. Every time I feel that depression creeping near me I listen to this song and remind myself how strong I am!

    The first time I hurd this song I felt as there was nothing left in life for me. Then I hurd how demi was having trouble, but she turned it all around. I thought to myself that if demi who has all these people around her telling her what to do, and what to look like can over come it then I can over come my depressions. I just want to say thank you demi for being you! Stay strong girl!

    I interpret it as an ex lover who has tried to break her down in every way imagineable and she wonders why he has to make her feel like she's broken and empty. She wonders if it makes him happy to watch her bleed out and feel powerless. She takes a stand despite her broken spirit and reminds herself that she is stronger than anything he can do/say/take from her. He can run away after hurting her like a coward but she is going to stay right there and be true to her soul. She knows she is stronger than that and will not succumb to anyone negative in her life. She will rise back up from the ground like a skyscraper, nothing will stop her.
    Sorry if I got the meaning wrong but having just ended a yr and half relationship and been friends for almost 7 years with this guy. I can def say these lyrics have helped keep me strong and given me some courage to get through. Awesome song.

    This songs meaning to me is being in a bad relationship. You think your happy even when this other person puts you down, or abuses you. You think your being yourself when your walking on eggshells and making yourself something your not, this song reminds me of taking the journey to step back and relize as a human being that this other person is toxic and abusive. The power of being able to walk through the roughest time and being able to detach yourself from something you have known for a long time and even tho this other person might try and tear you down in the process you rebuild and become yourself again bigger and better, stronger, and smarter. That to me is what this songs meaning is having the strength to move on even if someone else doesn't want you too.

    To me the meaning of the song is saying I am not going to let you bring me down and have you run my life. If you don't like me or you have a problem with how I look then you should go write in a journal or something.

    Why is everyone talking about the meaning of this song? I know that's something about her being bullied, and it's not that I don't care about that. It's just that all the comments are actually the same! Why aren't you guys gonna make a special comment, I honestly love demi and her song and the lyrics, it happened to me to but, I don't think it really helps for you to say: yeah, I was bullied too! And stuff like that. I know how it feels to be bullied, and I know this song means so much to her(demi) , yeah it's just that all the comments are the same. Love you demi.

    If by meaning you mean what does this song say to me whats the deeper meaning of it than just the words, I feel its a voice for those that are being bullied and would love to say everything she meant like when she said "would it make you feel better to watch me while i bleed" it seems like all the bullies could be as cold heart'd and could watch there target bleed to death and crack a smile in the moment and its just very cruel and inhumane and no one should be able to nor want to treat someone in that manner.

    This song means alot to me. I think this song means no matter people try to tear you down you can still rise above anything. Its like the saying "sticks n stones may break my bone' but ur silly wowrds wont hurt me. " in ur life ur gonna have people tell you ur not gud enough, ur ugly, ur fat, nobody loves you, are you may even have a fren that betrayed you. But gotta look at ur self in the mirror n say this is me, n I was born this way. This is the way god made me n nobody can bring me down cuz I will be rising like a skycrapper n I'm the best person I can n ever will be. Sometimes you may feel weak n destroyed becuz of the things people say to you, n its normal to feel that way, n its good to cry but hey you gotta let them kno I'm here to stay.

    Demi is amazing in this song and its pretty much saying that say what you want to say but it wouldn't affect her that shes stronger than how strong you though she was. Its saying that shes better that now nothing going to affect her that shes has let them affect her before but now she wouldn't let that happen again. That shes done with peoples stuff that it doesn't even matter to her anymore. You can tell she sang and wrote this song form her own experiences because at this time she was going though some stuff and this song appeared when she got back and shes coming back say that's noting will affect her because shes already let that happened and she almost lost everything and she wouldn't let that happen anymore. She is saying you have to stay strong and that what they say will never affect you because your better that what they though you were. That you have to stay strong to be the best you can be.

    Like demi I was 12 when I started to feel this and want to change it so badly.
    But. It is hard.
    I've kind of givin up on myself.
    This song reminds me that I'm not the only one who is feeling this way I watched her stay strong story and now I can't listen to this without crying.
    This song will always have a special place in my heart.
    #thankyoudemi.

    This makes me think of how when your bullied, you can stand up for yourself. Never let anyone tell you that your not important or that you rnot worth it, because we all have our own values and our own meaning. No one has the right to tell you that your not important because no matter what they say, you will always be better than the people that down you. Skyscraper makes you realize that you are important and that you do have meaning. It makes you realize that no matter what they say that tears you down or that makes you feel bad, you should stand up for yourself no matter what they say, or how they say it, you are important to people and you always will be.

    To me it means if someone is picking on you know what to do, no it's not just forget about it. You will pretend to be a skyscraper. Rise above that person and when you rise above that person. Not only will you rise above that person you will become more mature than that person. See if you pretend you know what it's not even "pretend" anymore. If you "be" a skyscraper nothing can tear you down.

    I totally agree with that person ill just copy and paste what she wrote.
    I think the meaning of this song is.
    Even if people try 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.

    This song meaning to me is like what I'm going thru. I had to fight for custody of my two beautiful kids and the father won because he makes more money than me and he can afford to get more than I can. The only thing I had that he could take from me was my kids because I was good faithful wife, a wonderful mother to my kids and I work my butt of so my kids are taken care of. That was the only way he could hurt me was taking everything I have and everything I am. But what he doesn't know is that the bond between mother and child is nothing like father and child. He broke me down but I will and I am going to rise like a skyscraper. He wanted to watch me bleed so he could feel better but now he hate me more because I am closer to the clouds up here.

    I totally understand this song, it says what I am going through.
    Many people define this as love but I know exactly what it is.
    It made me cry alot.
    I'm depressed and yes I do cut myself n she does it 2 but this is an encouraging song 4 me 2 stop I have nver been confronted with my own feelings but this song is what I feel.
    There are people bringing me down I cut myself cause of this no one understands me and never will.
    Behind my smiling face are hidden scars that are permanent they don't notice it.
    I isolate myself I cry in silence my bffl doesn't know.
    This song just tells me dat wen they bring me down I will rise above all others like a skyscraper they can everything I have they can tear me down but I will be rising from the ground.
    Will it make it better if they watch me bleed.
    I am 14 and I will rise lyke a skyscraper.

    Wow. This is exactly what demi needed. She didn't need those ugly clothes or cussing songs (like miley cyrus)
    instead, she is showing what she has been through. I know that she is tryijng to dissapear from that camp rock look, and I'm glad that she is choosing a sad song to show what she has been through after her problems with cuttiung herself through mean comments of becoming fat. This song shows everyone that she is back and that this is how she feels. "go on and try to tear me down i will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper"
    I just love this song. She shows her emotions. And when everyone hears this song, people will know exactly what she is talking about when people try to tear her down. This is a meaningful song. I know that alot of songs are not paid attention to in the lyrics, but in this song, theres no hiding what the meaning of this song is. I am just glad to see demi not going after the miley cyrus look and destroying her career in an ugly mess. You go demi! Shine!

    My meaning for this song. I know what demi felt like because I am anorexic & it hurts not only me, but also the people that love me. I cry at night because it hurts me & this song makes me feel stronger then I think I am. I don't want to hurt the people I love more & more every time I get weaker. I only weight 90 pounds & I am 16. About a month ago I weighed 112, & I have weighed 90 pounds for like months now. Demi, thank you for making this song. I starve my self & it hurts because I never know when I want to eat, I can go days with out eating now, & I listen to this song at the end of the day & think to my self. Is this what I want?

    She was bullied her whole life. And she was hurting during depression. Whatever you guys think or heard its not true because she was strong enough to show her face to the world so none of you have the right to critizize her nor judge her on or what she did. So back the hell off because demi is still loved by her fans all around the world. Includig me. This is why I fell in love of with this song because she sang it with so much love and emotion with this one out of all the others. This song showed how strong she was, and what courage she had. To me this song describes a love song as well an emotional song thanks demi for helping me understand what it takes to show the world how strong I am. Because I will rise like a skyscraper.

    This is a beautiful song with a great meaning, and demi lovato is awesome. Most people, when they listen to a slow song like this, they won't get it. They leave it, as is. Because these days, people like rapping, and hip hop. But I like this. I really, really do. I get the teenage problems this artist is facing, and I can relate to them very well. This is a great song for bullying. Demi lovato is a caring, good-natured person, and people who don't get that need to look deeper, because I love this song, and I know why.

    I've suffered depression and been bullying my entire life and I've never heard such a motivative song. It teaches you to be strong even when you've lost your hope and you feel like no one's there for you. This song is makes me emotional and reminds me about the tough times, and that I survived them. You just need to believe that there's a place for you in this world.

    "skyscraper", has such a deep meaning to it. The lyrics, describe what demi went through and how she's overcome them. I never really liked demi, but then again, I thought to meself "what has she done to me? She has never given me any reason to hate her, so why should i", and then after all she's gone through. I've been left speechless. She is now an inspiration to me. I remember that several months before she opened up about her problem, I was going through that phase. Thankfully, her "testimony", if you'd like to say, helped me stop, and realize that I was beautiful. Demi, is my role model, I admire her so much! She's so talented and absolutely beautiful! Me dream is to one day meet her and tell her "thank you, you really changed me life, possibly even saved it... You are beautiful inside out. Please never think any other way and never change, because you are perfect the way you are. " and I would cry and ask her for a hug.

    This song means that no matter what you do in life people will always try to bring you down but you just have to rise above them and be all that you can be because nobody can break you down. You just have to stay strong and overcome all the odds no matter how hard or challenging. There will always be people who crave to see you fall but you just have to prove them wrong.

    This reminds me of what its like to have bipolar disorder. There are always highs and lows, but you try to hang on to the highs and reduce the lows. Rising like a skyscarper = the highs. Skies are crying/catching teardrops, etc = lows. I love the line "i'm closer to the clouds up here" where she's on a high and can see the hurt that comes with the lows from up there. She's telling herself that she wants to stay up there because it's a "long way down"

    This is so insperational :) its saying how people are picking on her, she is hurt but she will still be strong and stand. "go on and try to tear me down.. I will be rising from the ground" its saying you can try to hurt me, but I can take it. "would it make you feel better to watch me while i bleed? " its saying that you can say things about me, it makes you feel better but I suffer. Hope you feel good about yourself, kind of thing.

    This song is about a skyscraper of love. The devil is trying to destroy the building of love and the only protection it has (other than the fire deptartment) is a spaceship. See demi and nicki (spaceship song) lyrics actually compliment one another. I guess they became friends in la recently and would watch american idol together. They both have the hots for seacrest or something. Anyway, the aliens in the spaceship kill the devil and send him to hell. The love explodes from the skyscraper and spreads all over and we all live happily in peace. How wonderful - thanks demi for your love. You are the greatest!

    Five years ago, I went out with some church guy friends. They were leaders in the church. We decided to drink, and I passed out from it. It turned out that, the guys raped me and took pictures of me naked. When I found out, I kept it a secret. I was ashamed and embarrassed. About a year later, it came out. Everyone found out. It went all over town. The church was only concerned with making sure that I would not press charges because one of the guys came from a rich family. The church told someone that they could fix it like a monetary issue. How much is a virginity worth? Today (5 years later), I am just now starting to truly process & work through the pain. There is so much more that goes into everything that happen, but what it comes down to is that church was my life. My life was shattered before my eyes, and as if that was not enough they kept on kicking me further and further down. I don't know that I will ever be okay, but I am finally standing.

    What its saying is, when somebody pushes you around they can take things from you. They can make you feel worthless, and they can make you feel empty. But, as a person, you have something much higher in life. Something much better, much brighter. And no matter how much that person hurts you, you're going to be okay. They can' take that higher and brigther thing from you. That's something you call your own.

    I think this song is a reference to her breaking her programming from mk ultra. It reflects her rebellion to the trap disney/ illuminati has kept her in, she is trying to break free through her words, screaming out to us the trama to which they have caused her. I pray she finds freedom. After all she never stood a chance being born to be a puppet in this game leading us into a satanic nwo.

    Today I have made the decision to end my son's schooling at our local secondary school due to the nature of his difficulties and the school's inability to deal with them effectively. This song, for me, represents the way school has broken him down, instead of building him up and how he will rise from the ashes of that experience. He is going to "untangle" himself from that negative experience and he will rise, but not as they wish him to (by conforming), but by being the person god made him to be and challenging the system that has tried to bring him down.

    Obviously it's about the about the people and critics who misjudged her with her eating problems, they made her look horrible because of something natural that she couldn't do anything about and to a lot of the world who knew her and heads about her being in rehab thought that she was a physco. This tells them, that she made a mistake and that she's not something they can just throw away and bully, she's a person that has a message for the world, now if only we could listen. P. S. Srry for such a long def, I just love demi sssooo much!

    I can overcome, by the blood of the lamb and the word of the testimony, everyone can overcome. No matter the multitudes of citizens saying you will amount to nothing. That isn't relevant to your life, you can overcome anything with jesus! We are stronger, sin is broken, he has saved us. Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper, into heaven! :) everyone has their own skyscraper, love jesus and find your skyscraper so you will live eternally in heaven! God bless you all, and may your life be prosperous and beautiful, you are perfect, no matter what they say, I promise you.

    Demi lovato made this song for all the people who are bullied, feel less of themselves and think their not perfect. The message of this song is telling everyone who feels like that, you can raise above your superiors that make you feel inferior. If you don't like the way it is, change it. Its not just another song, its a strong message being sent to all people, saying everyone is perfect.

    Is a tall, continuously habitable building of many storeys, usually designed for office and commercial use. There is no official definition or height above which a building may be classified as a skyscraper. One common feature is having a steel framework from which curtain walls are suspended, rather than load-bearing walls of conventional construction. In context, a relatively small building may be considered a skyscraper if it protrudes well above its built environment and changes the overall skyline.

    The song isn't about how she had an eating disorder. Its about being strong. And her life was never destroyed. Honestly her eating disorder, depression and bullying made her become who she is today and that is what made her become such a great role model. She can move on past the tough situations. She over came everything and now; look at her shes such a beautiful singer and has so many kids looking up to her. She deserves every minute of her fame. Imagine if more people were able to stay strong like this young woman did. So many suicides would have been prevented. And its all because she had people supporting her all along the way. That's what this songs about.

    That know matter what happens to you, you can always over come it. Your better than name calling, and bullying! You can do whatever and if you mess up you will always find a way to pick yourself back up because you can do anything you want. And just like how paper can be ripped you can fix it just like you can fix something if you mess it up. I really love this song! My english teacher would kill me if she saw this post because of my grammar! I sing this song when I am down and just because I like it. I am learning to play it on the piano! Later!

    This song absolutely changed my life. This is the lowest my life has ever been. By grandpa just died of a heart attack, one of my best friends committed suicide, and my best friend tried to. I felt like I had to stay strong for my friends and family but I just couldn't. I got into the habbit of making myself throw up and I cut myself to relieve some of the pain I was in. I have always loved this song but never really payed attention to the lyrics & meaning of it. But now after really listening to the words, I learned that no matter what god puts me through, no matter how much I am hurting, no matter how invisable I feel, I will always rise up, stand tall, & stay strong. Nothing will ever tear me down completely and make me give up.

    Skyscraper to me means that you can live without the peoples judgements and still stand tall and demi petrays that in such a meaningful way. The way she ephasizes they can't break her no matter how much they try. That she will be tall no matter what. She has been through it all. Shes had people hate her. Shes been aneraxic. And still she comes and sings taling about how fragile she is. She says that she is tall(i will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper) . It to means that your you and people will hate you for what you are and what you aren't but you have to stand tall " like a skyscaper"

    While you see someone "breakable like glass" or "weak like paper" and your trying to put them down/hurt them. They will be standing tall and strong "like a skyscraper". Demi pretty much is saying shes sick of this person trying to tear her down so shes untangling them from her (as the smoke clears I awaken and untangle you from me. Go run I'm gonna stay here and watch you disappear).

    The meaning of this song is that even if some one hurts her and trying to make her what she is not. And if she falls she will pick her self up again no matter how long it will take and how much pain she most endure. And she will be the one person she wants to be no matter what they say she will stand tall and strong and she will always pick herself up.

    I so love this song. I could barely relate myself to it. Yes, people might break your heart, shatter it into bits but never should you give up. We all must stand up like a skyscraper. The world wouldn't and must not stop just because we have been hurt, instead, it must keep going and use these series of pain to fortify our personality and get ready for what the future brings.

    Demi lavato is a true inspiration. Her music defines the guilt I feel inside for something nonexsisting and helps me defeat it. Demi is a beautiful human being brought from nature. I know she won't read this, but if there ever a chance I want her to know this. "demi, your my idol, a true meaning of perseverance, . You are the most beautiful creature in my eyes. Don't give up and let yourself down because they day you do, you won't be the only one disappointed. I believe you can get threw this, you will get through this, because your strong, stay strong.

    I think it means that noone can tear you down, you still stand up and fight. And the only person that can really hurt you, is you. People can abuse with either physical violence or just use vicous words. But noone can make you feel you like you want to kill or hurt yourself. Because all that abusement is stuck in your head hitting the replay button over and over and over again. Which is why we call them memories, we remember things we wish couldn't and we shouldnt. But we can't do anything about it, our brains are programed to remember things, good or bad, its there and you can't get rid of it. You can try to chase them but they will catch up with you no matter what or say or try to do they will. We may take a jump forward but after a while they take a leap! And that sends us not forward but back, back to where we started. And I think that this song helps us understand that and try to help us to deal with it and help us along the way. Because remember we/you might not get a tomarrow. So stop focusing on the bad and focus on the good things. Be happy and smile. Turn that frown upside down, huh? (a) don't worry your not the only one that has to deal with the insignifance of everything that you think bad happens to you. My modo is stop feeling sorry for yourself because theres always someone out there that has got it worse than you do. I love you demi, stay strong, because you are a strong, beautiful, amazing, poise(ect.

    The material me doesn't matter. The circumstance I'm in isn't more than me. After the storm has past, i'll rise again. Now matter how many times you push me done i'll get up and brush off. Though broken i'll stand tall '. I'm closer to the clouds up here'. It'll be more easier to pick up if I'm already standing. Go on give it your best shot. I'll only rise each time I fall

    I already said be you and be proud of you. I also wanted to say but didn't that demi has been going through some really tough times and she has made it through. All of the people who have told her lies, told her she is worth nothing, and put her through all of her misery need to hear this song and act as if demi is singing specifically to them. I thank the people who have helped her through her pain. It's not right for people to gossip about her troubles. You might think something is going on and something else might be bothering her. Demi, you have been afraid of what you look like and you weight and I want to tell you that you are perfect. I love listening to you sing, and I love that you are helping other people who are going through what you did. Youa re an amazing role model and don't ever change for anybody.

    You can break me down, but i'll just get back up on my feet and i'll be stronger than ever. This song is so inspiring because I heard it just at the right time in my ife. I used to cry myself to sleep every night and sometimes I stil cry but I am learning how to stand for myself. I don't care what other people tell me, if they tell me I'm ugly i'll tell them looks aren't everything. If they tell me I'm dumb i'll say only a dumb person would tell someone that. No matter what someone tells you, you are unique, you are you, you are loved, and god made you for a reason. That reason is to live life, make it through rough times, learn lessons, and prove to everyone that they don't rule your life. Be you and be proud of you.

    This song says that when we're on top, there are always going to be people who would want to bring us down, people who would want us to feel ugly, people who'd make us feel insecure with how we look, how we think, where we're from, and what we've reached. This song makes us, fans and even haters, realize that our words affect the people we direct them to, and that putting down other people isn't supposed to be a way of making ourselves feel better. Because, in his eyes, we are all equal, and we shouldn't let what other people say affect us because we know ourselves better, we should know ourselves better.

    This song. Is just amazing. It represents demi in a great way. As well as many other people. I for one am sure that this song is very true to many. This song says what I do every day. I get picked on. Bullied and you know what I do? I just keep doin it! Just to make em mad. After a while. You get used to the occasional hey dumbo (theres worse I'm just not goin to say). The first step to not caring what others think of you. Is to beleive in urself. And when they do mess with ya. Well. Then you come get me! Lolz. Every time somone says somethin I just get more proud. Is that wierd?

    I don't believe the song is about a relationship with another person at all. I believe it's about her battle within herself. Bi-polar depression follows her around breaking her down and she fights it with what may be medication and/or therapy. It's her way of saying she'll keep fighting it regardless of how difficult it always be. It's a roller-coaster ride except it never actually ends so you have to keep rising like a skyscraper.

    Everyone will at some point meet people who just want to make them feel small broken and fragile, whether they are saying you are too fat, too thin, too tall, too short or if they tell you aren't perfect they are trying to destroy you. They will try to tear you down and try to take away the things that make you unique and special but you can rise above it and stand tall just as demi has done.

    I recognize that it's about someone bringing her down and making her feel belittled. She's saying she's fragile, but she has enough will power to rise above.
    "as the smoke clears, i awaken, and untangle you from me. Would it make you feel better to watch me while i bleed? " - she's saying that she can finally see what this person is doing to her. They get satisfaction out of hurting her.
    Talking about how she's safer when she's high above the clouds, because she's persevering.
    I see demi in a whole new light. She is a legitimately real girl. I dig it.

    It means a girl who once had a boyfriend but they broke up and he is trying to get her down and make her upset and hates life but her revenge was in a positive way that she is trying to tell him that every time you tear me down I will grow higher and higher just like a skyscraper and my voice will be loud, so she win later and my point of view that she send a message every teenager or every person in general that never let the sadness win and that's way all our lives will be positive and good somehow.

    Sometimes everthing you do isn't good enough. You think you're all alone, but someone is always there to catch you, even when you're in the dark. Don't listen to anybody who tells you're not good enough, because in the end they are'nt good enough. Smile everyday like its your last. Do something that you would never do. Becuase you only get to live once, so don't let someone tell you how to live it. Be proud of who you are, and stand as tall as a "skyscraper" :)

    I always thought that this song was about not letting people bring you down & "rising from the ground" like how it mentions in the song. But then I realized when it says.
    "like we never had a chance" that it was probably about one of her past relationships, and how that person probably brought her down. And shes explaining how no matter how much it hurt her & what he did to her in the past, she won't let it bring her down.

    I think demi lovato is such a beautiful person with such a beautiful voice. She is an inspiration to many, including myself. 'skyscraper' makes you feel really good about yourself and makes you realise that we are all as beautiful as each other. It also makes people realise that we should all treat each other as we want to be treated ourselves and that nobody should feel the urge or need to bring one another down. By skye x

    This song reminds me of myself so much. My ex boyfriend now hates me and so this song is one I can completely relate to in terms of the lyrics. Her voice is outstanding and honestly, this song I think is very moving, with deep emotions hidden within it. :) idk many of her songs, but I knew of her name and things, but I really love this song! .

    This song really means a lot to me, it's very powerful and makes me really think and relate to my own personal events that have been taking place- like with my ex boyfriend at the moment. I have been singing this song for a school project where we have to do a cover of a song and I love the song in general- especially the lyrics. This song gives a big impact to me overall.

    This song helped me a lot when I thought I was gonna lose control and explode because of people that didn't see me like I really was. They saw me like they wanted to see me, not who I really was. This just tells you, in some way, others are here to tear you down. They're obstacles in life. If life had no bad things, then it wouldn't be good either. You just have to deal with it, because that's the way it is. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. And if you're reading this, it means you're still alive.

    I am a complete lovatic. When it comes to demi I am so thankful to have her as my idol. She means the world to me. This song makes me realize that as long as I stay strong nothing can defeat me. Not even addictions. I am not addicted to anything but I know that if it ever comes to that, I can listen to this song and realize that I am to good to be torn down. Thank you demi for teaching me that. You mean the world to me and that will never change. Lovatic for life! ♥

    The song skyscraper is strong and powerful. It has a very inspiring meaning behind it which I am sure every single person can relate to. Demi lovato has been through a lot of troubles in her life and those troubles may have had some people think that she's no good and that it's the end of her career, but this song completely cancels out this thought. This song is about her rising above her problems, becoming a better person and coming back to the world. It's says that when everything seems impossible and it feels like the world around you is against you, there is always someone on your side who will help you get through your problems. This song is easy to relate to as many people have struggles and issues in their life and this song is saying that you can get through anything, that you can overcome any obstacle and shine like a skyscraper and that's exactly what demi lovato has done.
    This song and demi lovato is a huge inspiration to us all because it shows that it can be done, it shows that you can get through these situations as long as you keep moving forward and not back. Demi lovato sings this song with so much emotion and feeling that you can tell that she really means what she's singing and she wants to let everyone know that she will come back.

    This is my meaning to this song. When I first heard skyscraper. I cried. This song I can totally relate to. I have always been bullied to the point where I started to cut myself. I felt worthless and like nobody wanted me alive. I sang this song at my school talent show. After I sang I said "you can hate me and bully me but i will rise above it,just like a skyscraper. " this song gave me my courage to stand up to the haters and stop cutting myself. Thank you demi for helping me rise above it all.

    The song reminded me of all the people that would sy such terrible things about demi and were the reason why she went into rehab. The whole "watch me while i bleed" could be her cutting herself and the "go in and try to yet me down" could be all the negative comments. She's a strong girl so the whole skyscraper means she's going I be the bigger person and not let them get to her.

    My name is cathrine. No one understands me they push me around and pretend I don't have any feelings. I mean imagine how you would feel. I cry every night and pull myself together enough to deal with the day with no tears. I don't cry in front of anyone anymore because tears show weakness. I know that I i'm not perfect or popular at all. I don't even think I could win a race if I tried. One thing I am sure of is that I will show people who I am one day. I will have a life so they can hurt me and break my heart now. I'll keep my eyes down and head up in the clouds. I really want to be noticed but how?

Somethimes all I need is a song to get me through the day at the worst elementery school ever and your song gets me through the day my "sister" only sometimes like it I think she's crazy don't you? But back to the point your song skyscraper is awsome just like you! It gets me through a school day at mark twain and some day when I'm older I want to be just like you because nothing or anyone could be better then you at singing. Oh I almost forgot you rock!

    Skyscraper inspires me to take what I get out of life and make it what I can. There are going to be people trying to break all of us at one point in our lives, for some it's more than just once, we need to overcome the people who try to break us and rise up to face them. We are strong and we can stand up for ourselves and let them run from their problems by trying to break us.

    A year ago I was diagnosed wit bypolarity I am 22 years old and my life changed completely. Theres things that I can't control and there was a time I could only think of not being awake I wanted to hide from the feeling by sleeping. I spent over 6 months in bed without talkin. Theres so much I can't remember, but people started taking advantage of my sickness. They wanted to see me down they liked seeing me dead inside. I still have to struggle with what I have with help from doctors. So when I heard this song I cried because no1 really knows how hard it is to fight agains your own head. No1 can feel that pain unless your in that situation and for me my windows are still broken but I learn each day that I'm building little by little a skyscraper that many wont like to look at.

    It is a song about a girl who has been put down all her life by people who want to break her, but she is rising and becoming more confident in herself, when they realise this they stop hurting her, she has a broken heart and many bringdowns in her life and she wont ust forget about that, those people who, well, bullied her will regret it now, she will never forget what they have done to her and she doesn't want to, it was those people that made her stronger.

    No one can take you down as along as you have faith in yourself. When someone is taking time out of their day to make you feel down and make your day horrible, it only means that you are above them. They are just jealous of what you are and what you do in your everyday life to make yourself so overwhelming and great. It also means that everyone has obstacles in their way and there's always a way to get through the problem as you approach the situation.

    You guys can try as hard as you want to bring me down, but you can't hurt me because I know better then to be tricked into believing lies you make up about me just so you can make yourself feel better. The truth is, when people like you try to hurt people like me, it shows how bad of a person you really are trying to hurt others just because your insecure of yourself. It shows taht people like demi lavato can fight the imaturity and show that the real you is shown when you speak up for yourself against the things taht try to bring you down.

    Skyscraper is about feeling like you can never be hurt again, about how youve reached a point in your life that you can say no one can nevr touch youu, because your higher then anyone youve raised from alll the hatee, all the mistreatment, and youve learn to overpower your fears and worries. You let go of your past and you make something of yourself, you make yourself as high as a skyscraper.

    I think the song resembles someone who feels as though there not excepted by others and they are losing faith in themselves. This songs is not just any song the lyrics resemble someone who has suffered though a lot but are keeping themselves strong no matter what others think. I must say after everything demi has been though I am proud of her for now being strong and getting back on her feet she is an inspiration to many.

Demi lavoto is to pretty and sucessful to have a eating disorder and even if she does that is up to her and god to handle not you guys to sit there and taunt here. I miss you on disney demi and I stil love you no matter what you have, what color your skin is, who your mom or your dad is. I love to sing thought if you can get me out there:-)

    Dreams are always there for us to reach it. Somehow we can walk away from those dreams when we feel like the whole world is turning against us but it does not mean that we need give up. Trials and difficulties are part of living a life. Stand up when we stumble. Failing is learning to try again. Try and try until we find our self becoming near to our dreams. Never get astounded by the people turning us down nor get shaken by them thus, we should show them that we're not weak and they can't tear us apart.

    When I listen to this song, it reminds of a time when I was recovering from a harsh break with my best friend(s) because one person tried to destroy me out of jealousy. I was so beaten down and had tried to change myself so much so that others would like me. My true self was nearly completely gone and at the breaking point I could feel god crying because the person he created was broken and on the verge of dissapearing forever. It took the breaking point to realize how much of me was missing, how much of me was still standing, and how much I could still achieve. Great job demi for singing what many of us can't even realize!

    I think it means that you're always teased, bullied and everyone thinks so little of you. And that someday they will regret what they did. It also means that no matter how all the persons try to discourage you in the biggest effort, you still stand up and stay strong. My advice "nobody can bring you down unless you let them. So, stand up and stay strong and they will realize you're unbreakable, you're strong and that they were wrong to make fun of you. " I always tell that to myself to keep me going. -regina 10 years old.

    This song is about rising above; rising above everything and everyone that seek to break down who we are. As skyscrapers, we tower over, stand out from the rest, and take on a strong and aloof attitude -untouchable. It may be that all we know is laying in shambles at our feet, but we recognize that to succumb to the devastating pain of rejection and doubting who we are, only makes us like all the rest on the ground. So we pick up our feet, stick our nose in the air, and stand tall; like skyscrapers. We may be alone, we may stand out, but we have a sense have who we are and hold on to that with everything we have; not allowing anyone to tear us down.

    I love this song. I think it portrays demi current circumstances very well. I have not gone through very major things, but I have gone through many little things piled up onto each other. I think this song means no matter what you go through, be it a disorder or just some guy making fun of you, you will always be you. So, instead of being the straw house that falls when the wolf blows on it, you should be the skyscraper that kisses the sky even through earthquakes and hurricanes. :) keep on singing demi! And for all of you in the same circumstance as her, remember that our not alone. Instead of thinking about the people that don't like you, the thing you need to remember abd cling to the most are the people who do like you the way you are.

Demi is saying well you can't take everything I have but imma be the strong one and imma stand up to fight my battles and be brave because really I won. I won confidence sumthing that you never get or even learn about. I'm the bigger person so go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper.

    All of us can rise above our disorders or problems that all of us have. Whether it be an eating disorder, a self harming problem or depression. There are tons of people out there willing to help. All you have to do is ask, don't wait for someone to notice. It might be too late. Don't ever regret not getting help. Find someone you trust and become your own skyscraper.

    It means that even though bullies and people you don't like are taking you down, you still have some strength left to get up and fight back, and you will be stronger than ever, because you know what it means to be bullied, to be picked on, to be torn down. So when she says "i will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper," she is saying that she will be stronger and more powerful when you fight back.

    A skyscraper is a tall, continuously habitable building of many stories, often designed for office and commercial use. There is no official definition or height above which a building may be classified as a skyscraper. One common feature is that skyscrapers tend to make use of a steel framework structure from which walls are suspended, rather than having load-bearing walls as seen in conventional buildings.
    As there is no official definition of what constitutes a skyscraper, a relatively small building may be considered one if it protrudes well above its built environment and changes the overall skyline. The maximum height of structures has progressed historically with building methods and technologies. 'supertall' has arisen as a contemporary expression for exceptionally tall buildings, although again there is no formal definition.
    And so it means she is as strong as a super tall building.

    It means that someone has hurt her, they tried to take her down and as she rebuilds herself and takes the people that hurt her out of her life they are watching her go through the pain. Taking down a skyscraper isn't easy so she uses it as an example of what she is. Strong and cannot be taken down easily, and so th people that hurt her run along because now that she is fine they can't hurt her anymore. I do not think that its a guy rather than a group of people with a negative influence on her life.

    It's easy. It's pretty much what every girl goes through because guys end up leaving is hanging in the end. You can't trust anyone these days, but you gotta show that your stronger than that. If you let a guy defeat you, you'll be known as an easy target. Show your strong so that you can handle any obstacle in your future life. And don't ever let a guy define you, or make you seem low. Your beautiful in every single way, and no guy is worth your tears.

    Not even a fan of most pop music, but I heard this song and fell in love with it! It's so emotional, showing the sensitivity and weakness she feels in the verses. But then the chorus comes back, and it shows the strength and beauty that defines her. I've heard so many really great covers of this song, and each of them takes a slightly different version of it. People can relate to the touching lyrics; everyone has hard things in their lives that make them want to give up. But this is a song about perseverance. Going against what you naturally want to do. Cry your eyes out, and then rise above. This song means alot to me. I love and miss you johnny.

    First off, I've always loved demi lovato since four years ago. She really is my role model. I love her.
    And I was devastated when she felt like she was unworthy. She's such a beautiful person and such an amazing person, I'm a lovato through and through. She's just beautiful so much more than those aneroxic girls. I believe this songs signafies this, how people were trying to knock her down and not caring about her. While she might not know who I am, she has such a big impact on me and I love her so much. This song shows that no matter what she will rise up no matter how many times or ways people will try to knock her down. I admire her valour, big heart, and braveness. -from you biggest lovato 13 year old anikaa.

    Come on people. Can't you read between the lines. These guys wrote a song the thought they could sell. The spoiled brat child star had it fed to her.
    Don't you get tired of your emotional state being like an radio station, just flip from sad to happy at the push of a button?
    There as so many truly talented musicians in this world, some right under your nose. These contrived presonalities like dl, and lady gag, is that what you want to be? As we used to say, and for some reason it faded because it was often said in futility,.

    The people who can really hurt you and break you down, is the people that you love the most. When you lost them, when you lost their love you fell that you lost everything. Since that day you fell very weak, you can't sleep, you can't eat, n live your live half alive. But life still must go on, you should be strong, should standing on your feet. N build up your life again from the ground, you build a skyscraper from the ground. You lost everything, n start again your life from zero.

    That no matter what your going through, you can raise. When you have everything taken away from you, when your broken past your limit, when you truly have nothing left. You can raise. Its in our soul to put the pieces back together. No matter the damage. This song is so great. It should give those who feel like they hit rock bottom, it should give them hope. Hope that they can only raise.

    I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions. Most people aren't aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites.
    The site that has the best deals is saveonbuycøm
    And I checked with the better business bureau and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don't know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 loews gift cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?
    You can take anything everything but I will still be standing here hurt. (meaning need help).

    Also, don't care about what people say, you don't have problems, but you have a personality that the can't handle. Demi lovato, don't let other people bring you down just by hurting you bad, no matter who you are, you can always stand tall in spite of pain. You inspire me :)

    A sweet song, that shows what a painful condition poor demi lovato actually went through in real life. Everyone gave up on her and she never had a chance to prove herself for what she could be capable of. I am always listening to this song everywhere! I am inspired by you and yourself! I hope you keep singing and never give up on urself because you always have alot of fans cheering you around the world! Including your biggest fan: me! Demi lovato, if you read this by a miracle, then I promise to always cheer you on because you are my star! I love you and you are just amazing! I love your voice, and I try to sing like you but its just not possible! I try so hard :) its ok tho because no1 can ever copy your voice or talent! I love you so much! You are my role model and I hope things will get better with you :)

    That there is nothing you can do to bring me down from the point I have now put myself at. I will not let you tear I wont let you pull me any further down then what you have already done. I will grow and become more then you said I ever will. I didn't need you to grow n from this moment on I will never let you believe I did need you. Now that I know better I wont ever go bwe to that same mistake.

    She is (well was) bipolar. I think this is saying about all the bullies and haters hating her and making nher feel really terrible but when she's happy they make her come crashing down. By saying 'i will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper' she's saying she's going to stand up to then all proud and happy and say 'go on and try to hurt and upset me, I'm going to stand up for myself, you can't do this to me anymore!

    The song skyscraper gives so much people strength about standing up to themselves and they will never back down. This song has given me so much confidence and to be proud of who I am and that I shouldn't worry about what other people are saying because I'm not who they want me to be. If anyone doesn't like this song then that's there opinion, but I think this song has true meaning and demi should write more songs like this.

    Hi demi if you read this I wanted to ask you a question. Did you accept jesus christ as your lord and savior? God loves you and he has a great plan for your life. Never give up and put all your trust in the lord he will guide you even in the darkest paths. Even if it seems noone else in this entire world cares about any of your problems,. God does!

    This song is a message to people who are being treated like demi and that means you have o keep you're chin up ansd always believe in yourself because if anyone picks on you that just means their jelous of you which makes you even prouder but the down side about that is sometimes you believe them and you acually think what their saying is true but remember you are beautiful no matter what they say! I think demi has proven that love you demi!

    No matter the persecutions I face from others, god will always cause me to rise up above all of it. I will always get his blessings in my life no matter what others try to do or say.
    I can imagine this girl demi has faced a lot of scrutiny being in this industry. Especially about her looks when she was growing up in the spotlight. She is beautiful, was then and is now. It's a shame that may be at one point she believed what was said. The only opinion that matters is from the one who made us. We were created in the image of god, so therefore we are beatiful! Stay strong demi!

    Its a nice sound btw. I think the sound is about a break up, its say that nothing matters now so you can take everything it has nd break everything it is like if its something worthless but although all those things happen it will be rising off the ground like a skyscraper its an inspring sound it can build up people who had a recent break up or lost someone very close to them like a friend, child etc. Nd I could tell you this because I was in a late relationship nd I broke up with my bf because he cheated on me for the 3rd time nd this sound inspired me I now I wont stop loving him but this song inspired me to move on nd leave the past behind me nd I did so I called my ex the other day nd I ask if we could just be friends nd he apoligize nd he accepted dat I wanted to be friends nd now were friends.

    No matter who or how someone tries to break your will to live and to love yourself you need to be strong! Look at them with pity for the foolish people that they are and bounce back from their hatred by being who you are with pride. People only make fun of others when they feel inadequate themselves. Keeping that in mind makes it easier to feel sorry for the bullies in this world.

    Skyscraper was written by the extraordinary and talented demi lovato and this inspiring sons tells us the life of a girl or even a guy who have gone through bullying misunderstanding and more. It describes the situation of someone whose been put down all the time but now is learning to love him or her self for who they and not caring what others say, but caring about themselves mostly and their loved ones.

    Ik that the song is very "insoriational" but the main thing for me is tht demi is (correct me if I'm wrong) fricken rich! I get how it helps people, but she shouldnt be fricken emo. She has a fricken dream life! She's rich, has a tv show (i think), sells alot of music and some how she ends up emo! I mean her doesn't fricken sux! Its acullay a pretty good life! She makes me made cuz she has no fricken "right" to be fricken emo! Her life is better than most people but you don't see them cutting them sellls. I think that she is just doing the emo thing for publisity and she thinks that she can get more sympathy fans! My friends and I don't like her because we all think that she is just doing it for show and our lives are deffently not hard but they have there problems like everyone elses and we allways help eachother up wen they are down and do our beasts to put a smile on our face for them because that is what we would them to do for us! =)

    This song saved my life. The first time I heard this song was the day I started college. A small community college is like the 13th grade and the bullying doesn't stop at any age. In ten years, the same people will act the same. My first day of college was pure distress. While my name was called on the role someone said "hoe" very loudly and being in a chemistry class where one teacher teaches, the classes are huge. 200 some odd students looked at me with laughter, disgust, and some pointed me out. I thought highschool ended at graduation but unfortunately it didn't. That day driving home, I decided to end my life until I heard this song. Thanks to demi and her powerful words, I no longer let bullies hurt me.

    My meaning of skyscraper is that demi is having a hard time just getting out of her head that yes she was in rehab, and made her skyscraper go tumbling, but she won't let herself give up she will keep trying to build her new skyscraper or new life, even if someone is trying to tear her down and make her feel bad about herself. By the way I'm not a huge demi fan, but I love this song!

My boyfriend of teh last 4 days just broke up with me. I loved him, I don't know what i'll do without him. I'll miss everything about him, these last 4 days were the best. This song really means a lot to me. He can say what he wants to me, but I will always come back up, like a skycraper. I luy you demi, you will always be my hero.

    The meaning of this to me means that what ever you do, weather you run away from me or not, or weather you try to hurt me, I will always be there for you. I will always be standing there for you weather you try to kill or ignore or do whatever towards me negatively, I will always let you lean on me and I will always be standing high and tall and proud for you, like a skyscraper.

    Demi wrote her song to thank the god that made her alive again after she was sick in rehab for 6 months and she is saying to her haters if they tried to fell her bad or tear her down she will stay strong like a skyscraper, she keep saing I will stay strong if whatever happened to her.
    If everyone went frightening she will stay strong and watch the scare disappear she won't go run like them she will stay close her god (clouds).
    You can break everything you have but she will saty strong thanking her god if whatever happened to her made her backup she will go on like skyscrapers -sara kamel -demi lovato news & news-fb.

    I can completely relate to this. It's horrible when you fall in love with someone, but then they take everything that you have and you feel so broken and fragile. I don't mean sensually, but emotionally. But demi is right, we have to keep rising up and we have to let the person who hurt us go. They will run away, and we have to just remember our own person.

    Don't let the haters get you down. Anyone that has ever hurt you doesn't deserve your reaction. Forget them and forget it all. Build your own life and make them regret everything they ever did to hurt you. When the 'smoke clears' and you awaken it will be the best thing that has ever happened to you. People hate when they don't have self confidence, and want yours. Don't let them get it. Stay strong and get through it all. You are amazing.

    This song reminds me of my ex-boyfriend, and how he's been making me feel for the past month. I miss him, and he's not helping me. He's tearing me down, I'm staying up and I'm keeping my held high. Everything he does just makes me miss him, I just want things back to how they were. But he can tear me apart like I'm paper, i'll stand high like I'm a skyscraper.

    To me, skyscraper is a song about not giving. So basically demi is saying "you can say what you want, but it wont affect me, " "you are the lesser person, you must be so insecure if my pain makes you happy" "so you know what, i'm just gonna ignore it, i wont fuel your flame" just don't let anyone or anything stand in your way, emotionally and physically (:

    I think this is demi's way of standing up to bullying, and saying that you can take a stand, and stand as tall as a skyscraper. It really has a beautiful meaning, that each and everyone of us can relate to in some way. Demi is saying that no one can't stand in her way, and that it can be the same for us too. In the beginning of the song, she describes bullying, like, "do you have to make me feel like there's nothing left of me? " and it has a sad tone to it. Of course, because bullying is horrible thing, and has killed many people, most in suicide. This song (for me) is about standing up, and being surprised that if you just hold strong, you'll reach the sky, you'll stand up tall enough to scrape the ceiling of the atmosphere. You can try to hurt me, but you won't suceed, because I believe in myself, and I can reach higher limits than the average bully. ? Sophia brousseau, age 13.

    I really love this song, you can tell its not just more disney fluff. I think it means that no matter how much people wanna year you down and laugh and make fun of you, you can rise above all that. People get a kick out of bashing everything everybody does these days. Kind of like with mj, everybody made their decision about him before he got to say anything. All he wanted to do was to help the world; all the world wanted was to shame him and bring him down. We are part of a sick and pathetic species, you know?

Literally today 4 5th grade girls shared this song with me and the impact it has for them. Demi lovato is there hero because she never gave up and overcomes the bullying. And the miracle is that tonight I hear this song, home maker walker show and stand together website. I will share this song n website every where I will teach. You rock my world with hope, healing and renewal for our children and young people. Signing off as a proud teacher since 1969. Thank tousle your courage, commitment and vulnerability.

    Skyscraper is a song that everybody can share testimony with. There are so many challenges and struggles that everyone has to overcome in this life. Bullying, school achievement, family expectations, abuse, neglect, guilt for things done and undone, broken hearts, betrayal, self image struggles--these are all things people must overcome. Skyscraper is one of those songs that describes the mentally and heart of those struggles. Such a beautiful song.

It would be so easy. But I wont. I will fight. I will stand up and make a change. I can do this. I will be my own warrior. I will be my own skyscraper.

    Demi is telling everyone that noone is going to push her or hurt her anymore. She is bigger than all those fake people. She understands why she is being put through all these crazy mooments. She's getting her strength back and she is stronger now that she has pulled herslef out of the gutters. There's a new demi lovato and she is ready for what ever happends next in her life. She has opened up a new chapter in her life called courage. She has the balls to do anything now. She is tuff and witty but always stronger.

    Honestly, I'm a little upset that she wasn't one of the people that wrote the song, but I'm happy to see her make this song her own. Her heartfelt connection to this song is one of the things that makes this song great, not to mention her unique voice and great lyrics.
    I listen this song for inspiration to get me through difficult times. This is what music is about.

    I think because she. Showed her vulnerablity, that's what makes her A. Good role model. Id rather my kids be out in the open with who they are then to keep it hidden inside like most do. Because she wasnt ashamed. To say, hey this happened to me and now I'm taking care of it and taking care of myself is courageous amd although I don't agree witg some of her decisions, it still took alot for her to come back standing strong with this song. You have to remember shes. Human too, you know? Even if we are the prettiest, smartest or thinnest girl. We all have our insecurities. You saw her figure as ideal, but she didn't and that was the issue.

    It's catchy, but to deep for me. She is not a good role model, she proved she was weak and self conscious, than tried to make it up for writing this song. She was not even close to fat, I totally want to have her shape, yet she still thought she was fat. I know she wasn't skinny as a child, but she still shouldn't be thinking like this. I guess rehab helped her but in the video she looks like a hippy or a mentally insane person.

    These lyrics mean to me so much more than a few lines of thinspo poetry. It means I can be anything I want, not just the girl in the mirror, not just the girl with tears rolling down her cheek, or the girl that feels hopelessy alone like she is standing in the cold dark waiting for the lazy sun that refuses to come up and light the way, it means I can be the happy beautiful girl in the picture. The one I want to be, the one I want others to see. The one with the contagious smile and innocent eyes. I want to be more than me. This is what this song means.

    I'm in love with this song. It means like. If you're depressed, sad, or you feel like you can't live your life anymore, than you can. You can always get through it. My favorite part is when I says "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" that part is so much like me. I go through so much and no one can really tell because I can hide what I feel. I still go out and face the world. Face the people who give me that feeling. And then I think of this song. And it makes me feel a lot better:)!

    This song just means that at on point or another evryone has felt upset about someone or something trying to discourage them and so it spreads the message to bounce back up from the ground like a syscraper.
    (and just cause' she had a cutting problem and came from rehab doesn't mean it's the meaning of the song it just means she has personal experience with the message of the song).

    After all she's been through, it's no wonder the poor soul wrote this! The entire song is about not letting anyone, espcially a guy tell you what to do and who to be. Forget popular prissies, in the end after high school they'll be the ones working in Mcdonalds because they spent their entire school exsperience flirting with boys and gossiping. Don't even get me started on the texting during class. I think what Demi wants us to take from this song is to be yourself and only yourself! :)

    This song actually is for the devil. Because of what she went through, she is basically telling satin that he can't tear her down. When she says "i will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper" what shereally means is 'I'm with jesus christ and I am gonna be saved and go to heaven' if you really pay attention to the lyrics than you can figure it out. Also, in the music video they show her tatoo and her tatoo says strong and it has a cross on it. It is located where she used to cut herself. Oh andshe has cross earings on (: sorry just had to share and if your not reeligous it doesn't mean you can't likethis song. I freaking love you demi and you will always be my favorite disney channel star!

    This song for me means freedom, because for me, my dad has made me feel horrible for my 15 years. I sung this song at my bands first gig and my dad was there, I dedicated this to him and I told everybody in the crowd it was for him, Demi has made an amazing song, but as Kurt Cobain said "no one should be denied the privledge to create and some people most certanly do not need the fear of whether their goods are better or worse than the best or worst."

    You are all wrong. I don't care if I get disliked for this. First of all to you who said Demi's voice is bad clearly you are deaf! Second to you who said Demi is the only good Disney channel role model you are also wrong! Raven-Symone, Hillary Duff, Nick Jonas, Corbin Blue and Saleana Gomez are all doing good things. Those stars who did srew up are only human. So stop judging because they probably had a lot of pressure on them.
    Anyway good job Demi! :) I'm glad you got back on track. For all you Demi haters and those who judge other Disney stars (or any other stars)when you don't know them maybe you should read the lyrics again! The song is about rising above cruelty and those who try to tare you down.
    Don't hate.

    I love this song it is meaningfuul. To so many people it means the world to know that a star like herself has gone throuh somthing like that. My father and I agured over hannah montana, sutie life of zach and cody and figured it out the parents are dumb. Demi is a lovely singer and everyone shuld know that. I am so glad she is back and that she went to rehab. Everyone says that all diney stars are not good role models I have personal experiance of that but demi is the perfect one she gave up a very good cureer to fix her own promblems that is so alsome for her stay strong! I am a good fan and have only been to one of her concerts with my two bffs and that was the funniet time of my life! Love you demi stay strong!

    I believe that Demi has gone through so many hard times, from; rehab to the cutting to ending her Disney career. But her quitting Disney to go to rehab and make better for herself is probably the best message she can give anyone. It means that she gave something great up so that she could seek help, to make herself better. She needed that recovery, and she sought to get it. I'm quite a fan of hers and I support her in any decision she's made or going to make. I've gone through the whole cutting situation, and it's hard to stop, especially when that's your way of releasing any emotional pain. I became dependant on it and quitting it has been the best decision I've ever made.

    The true meaning of this song is that Demi has been through a whole lot of drama and pain and she got through it and she wrote this song to say "I'm back and I'm unbreakable(another song) and she felt like a closed flower blossom but she now has bloomed into a beautiful strong rose. She is sending a message that is if she got through it everyone can.

    Okay, if I said everything in my head right now this comment would take up 5 pages. But to make a long story short, I love demi. Lovatics ftw. And she is the strongest person out there, in my opinion. I'd be lying if I said I didn't cry the first time I heard this song. This song is just too amazing. My mom even likes it. And she doesn't like a lot of my songs, believe me;)
    Demi, mah gurl, don't ever stop thinking for a minute that you aren't perfect. Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect♥.

    When I first heard this song I almost cried and I may not know how Demi felt through these years but I do know she's not the only one that has been through a lot. Am I right? I've been through a lot too but they're different things but the pain is still the same. So here's a quote that I found. "RISE UP! RISE UP! AND LIVE A FULL LIFE...'CAUSE WHEN IT'S OVER, IT'S DONE. SO RISE UP! RISE UP! DANCE, AND SCREAM, AND LOVE." Oh n I forgot. -> "WE WILL BE RISING FROM THE GROUND LIKE A SKYSCRAPER." Love you Demi! I will always stay strong 4 you demi!

    Skyscraper means when people are trying to hurt you, but you stay strong at the end. Demi lovato wrote this song because she was getting alot of tweets from haters and she got taken away from her family about two months. When she came back from rehab she started writing songs for her album, on one of her wrist she has a tattoo of a heart and the other one has a tattoo that says "strong"
    demi lovato is really strong she came back from rehab even stronger than she already is.

    To me, the meaning of this song is that you can feel bad, feel down and feel like nothing is worth anything, but you can break through and say I can do this, I can get through it and nothing is going to stand in my way. "i will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper" means, to me, that. "oh, you can try all you want to make me fall, to tear me apart, but guess what, i'll break through it and you can't make me shatter into pieces. "
