Demi Lovato - Skyscraper Lyrics

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?

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, oh
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
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

  42. Thunder Sparks

    This song is my entire life and my whole world.

  43. Kollax _ Studios

    There really have been so many songs like this where she’s cried out and none of us paid attention to them- I was way younger when this came out and with how much she’s grown I really hope I can overcome things as much as she has

  44. Timothy Goodwin

    So beautiful

  45. Baby Sin

    My cat was hit and killed today, 2 days before my birthday, 5 days from one year after my father death and 6 days from the 6 years after my cousins overdose. I’m struggling, Demi’s raw emotions so blatantly displayed for everyone else to resonate with, helps bring me peace. This and “Anyone” thank god for music.


    omg I'm so sorry for everything you had to go through..

  46. Julius Kaiser

    I had this Song on a Mp3 player back in 2012 but never knew the name and then i lost it and yesterday this came up in the radio and after almost 8 Years, i found the Song again


    You should listen to her " Anyone"

  47. Thatohatsi Mokone

    Being a stripper is probably the hardest thing to do but dancing to this song humbles me

  48. aby edward

    I love you

  49. Josh Bieler

    Love taut under hand 🤚... she purrs, Long trek unto heaven... even from utmost tops of skyscraper 🏙... Babel called her it’s bae... then worshipping an image of her... understanding her emotion before logic... she sees my heart 💜 before soul... together we are everything each would want... needing one so fully... only glass, metal, with concrete can help forget...

  50. Amanda Tamara

    Adoro as músicas da Demi ela canta com muita verdade muita emoção 💕

  51. Melly The Wolf

    I came here cuz of the skyscraper roblox story

  52. Alexander Koerbel

    Yes she in deed is rising from the ground after every breakdown. But to be honest it's rather the WTC sort of a skyscraper... with the tendency to collapse...

  53. Adrian G

    This song saved me from not going into a darker place and not committing suicide thank you beautiful

  54. OITNB 1226

  84. Randall Tatge

    Me when I used to do meth 8 years ago: singing "Like a pipe scraper" as I'm doing it

  85. Livi ⭐️⭐️

    I’m here after the 62nd Grammy’s when she prerformed anyone. I came back to this because Demi has always made a song to express exactly how I was feeling when I was feeling it.

    I got curious as to when I truly felt depressed for the first time and my first memory of being depressed was when skyscraper came out. I remember that being the year because I would have a break down every time I listened to it. I did the math and turns out I’ve been depressed since the 5th grade. I’m honestly not surprised because that was the year I hated everything I loved and missed so much school I almost got expelled. It was the first year I started to distance myself from people as well.

  86. Zeki Müller

    Like a skyscraper 🏙💙

  87. Ma An

    2020 here anyone?

  88. çağla karan

    When I'm 14 I was love Demi so much but honestly I wasn't love this song. Probably I couldn't feel the emotions.And now I am 20 and I understand how deeply it is and I love this song so much now

  89. Jonny JoNnY
