Transcript of Skyscraper by Demi Lovato

By Paige & Sarah Poetry Analysis Project The song we are presenting is Skyscraper by Demi Lovato Skyscraper by Demi Lovato This is Demi Lovato Some facts about Demi Lovato: - She is now a judge on the X Factor panel, along with Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid & Britney Spears. - Demi started her career at the age of 7, starring as Angelina in “Barney and Friends." - Demi was born and raised in Dallas, TX, and was raised by her mother and stepfather. - Skyscraper was Demi’s first number one single ever, and topped the charts everywhere. - Demi started to develop depression at the age of 11. - November 2010, during the middle of her Camp Rock tour, Demi checked herself into rehab. Demi had many issues going on in her life that no one knew of. She was starting treatment for severe depression, anorexia, bulimia and cutting. She then discovered that she was bi-polar. - She then got a tattoo on her wrists saying. “Stag Strong” so she can remind herself everyday. - Demi is working with different organizations to prevent bullying. The theme of this song is expressing her dark past which she has now overcome. She is showing her fans in this song that she did go through a rough time, but got through it. She "was rising from the ground like a skyscraper". She is using her experiences to be a role model to other people in the same situations. Demi is now trying to prevent bullying so that others do not have to go through what she went through. Demi Lovato is a role model to people all around the world. Theme of Skyscraper 1 ."Sky's are crying" - Personification Poetic Devices 2."Catching tear drops in my hands" - Metaphor 3. "Like I'm Made of Glass" - Simile 4. "Like I'm Made of Paper" - Simile 5. "try to tear...." - Alliteration 6. "to watch me while I bleed" - Cacophony 7. "Run, run, run" - Repetition 8. "like a skyscraper" - Simile 9. As the smoke clears, I awaken and untangle you from me - Imagery 10. "I will be rising from the ground" - Metaphor 1. "Sky's are Crying" - Personification
- This device shows that the sky isn't literally "crying" it was showing that the sky was dark, sad, and unhappy. 2. "Catching teardrops in my hands" - Metaphor
- This metaphor states that she isn't catching her teardrops in her hands, its showing that she can't forget all the pain she went through. She constantly feels the pain she went through. 3. "Like I'm Made of Glass" - Simile
- This simile shows that she wasn't literally made out of glass, she was just very delicate and fragile. 4. "Like I'm Made of Paper" - Simile
- This is very similar to number 3, but this shows you in your mind that you needed to take care of this person like they are delicate paper that could rip at any moment. 6. "To Watch Me While I Bleed" - Cacophony
- This quote from the song is very dark, and hurtful and has a very scary meaning and sound to it. 5. "Try To Tear...." - Alliteration
- This part of the lyrics has alliteration. These three words all start with the letter "T". 7. "run, run, run" - Repetition
- These three words repeat one after another in one line in this song. The theme statement of "Skyscraper" is that you can use your experiences to help guide others through their rough times showing them that you can overcome anything. 8. "like a skyscraper" - Simile
- Demi is showing that she is as strong, and as tall as a skyscraper after she went through treatment. 10. "I will be rising from the ground" - Metaphor 9. "As the smoke clears, I awaken and untangle you from me" - Imagery
- This has a vivid image in my mind. I see smoke clearing so you can see a patch of light, and someone waking up and untangling themselves from another person. - This metaphor does not mean that she is actually rising from the ground; it is actually saying that she is getting past all the rough parts in her life and is finally coming out strong again and will show people that she is strong enough, and that she can do this.
