Lyrics Of The Day - Demi Lovato "Skyscraper"


Have you ever taken the time out to actually read the lyrics to your favorite song? Not with the music, just reading the lyrics and understanding what is being sung alone. I think by doing so, you will gain more respect for the song and feel a connection with the artist more than ever. Some may already do so while some have that gift to comprehend while listening to the song. I, on the other hand, I love reading the lyrics and line by line interpret what is being said.

My favorite song right now is Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper" off of her new album Unbroken. The song is doing so great that it just went GOLD. "Skyscraper" is certified GOLD!!! If you kept up with the downfall of Demi Lovato, then you'll understand why the song is having the success it deserves. "Skyscraper" is a raw emotional song talking about people taking everything away from you BUT your self-confidence in the end standing tall; not being able to break. The lyrics are so powerful. Written by Kerli Koiv, Lindy Robbins and Toby Gad. Read the lyrics and interpret on your own what the song means to you.


"Skyscraper"

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
Yea--ohh
Go run, run, run
Yeah, it's a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Ohh Ohhhh!
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
