Demi Lovato - Skyscraper lyrics

The Toby Gad-produced "Skyscraper" serves as the official first single from Demi Lovato's third studio album to be released in 2011 - After all she had to struggle before the release of this new single, it was quite expected that Demi would put out a powerful ballad first to let go of all the frustrations, and the accumulated energy. "Skyscraper" is such a moving ballad. Demi sings it with such passion! although showing some vulnerability too, which makes the song even more fantastic. And the lyrics are so empowering! Even though someone tries to bring you down, remember you'll always comeback rising as a 'skyscraper'. Demi slayed, period.


[Demi Lovato]
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 is nothing left of me?

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

[Demi Lovato]
As the smoke clears
I awaken, and untangle you from me
Would it make you, feel better to watch me while I bleed?
All my windows, still are broken
But I'm standing on my feet


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

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

[Demi Lovato]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper, Oh
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!
