I picked up this song because I couldn’t come out of the guilt of making fun of it in the first place. So, here’s a sort of tribute to it.

These days, songwriters don’t bother to associate themselves with real feelings. They dont relate to emotions of people. But, I can’t say same thing about DEMI LOVATO“S song SKYSCRAPER . If you listen to the song and understand the lyrics, that’s when you will realise that this is a  beautiful song and most of the people will be able to relate to it and feel the same way.

Song starts with a tone of despair where the boy is leaving the girl alone and she is crying and not in a state to say anything.

Chorus of the song talks about how she will be alright, irrespective of everything. She challenges the guy to shatter her completely but she will still be able to stand on her own feet

2nd verse glides to the phase when girl starts seeing the reality and is ready to move on. And the bridge brings in the power punch where she asks him to leave and go far away because now the girl is at a better place and she’s over him and in a better place without him.

It’s a powerful song which would boost anyone’s ego who has gone through the trauma of broken heart.

WHAT I LEARN 

This song inspires me and it should do the same to other people too. It can be associated with anyone who has been through bad times and traumas and when you left all that behind and came out with flying colors.

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
