Heart Beat: “Skyscraper” Demi Lovato

When I first heard this song, I had to stop what I was doing and just listen.  I was in my room putting pictures away when the premier was showcased on The Ryan Seacrest Show.  Skyscraper struck a chord with me from the first beat.  I heard Demi’s struggle, but I could also hear her overcoming strength… and I knew all too well the emotions belting out.

Life is an emotional roller-coaster.  I too have been in devastating life altering situations, heart-breaks, betrayal, moves, changes, etc.  There’s always an eventual tipping point where we become aware that we have far more personal strength than we thought.  We become clear and rise to the occasion with a new inner strength and decide to walk forward.

Skyscraper is a beautiful self-reminder that we have strength to rise and achieve all that we decide is best for ourselves.

“Skyscraper”

[Verse 1:]
Skies are crying, I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence as it’s ending
Like we never had a chance
Do you have to make me feel like
There’s nothing left of me?[Chorus:]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

[Verse 2:]
As the smoke clears, I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you feel better
To watch me while I bleed?
All my windows still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

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

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

[Chorus:]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Oh 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
Like a skyscraper
