Lyric Talk: Skyscraper
Transcript of Lyric Talk: Skyscraper
Skyscraper is a song written actually by: Toby Gad, Lindy Robbins and, Kerli Koiv. The song was inspired by a picture of the, a-poc-a-lypse (destruction) in which the world was in ruins and with collapsed buildings, only one skyscraper was standing. You can see Demi's ups and downs in her song, “Skyscraper,” which she said helped her solve her issues before she got in treatment , last fall. She recorded two versions, one last year during her darker days (when she had issues) and one after she left the treatment. Demi lovato ending up singing the first one she recorded when she had the issues. She thought it made more sense and gave a Real meaning to the song. Spot this song on the iTunes top 10 chart.
Authors message/ Singers message
I think the authors message is about,
struggling with life's hardships and facing the adversity
. The song is a narrating a story and
the lyrics speak of staying strong and believing in yourselfs and about rising above those issues. No matter how hard your rock bottom is, you can rise above it and you can come back."
I think this message of the song is true and just fits in with the song I think this because in the lyrics it says i will be raising from the ground like a skyscraper and that shows that all that struggling can go away if you just stay strong.
About The Lyrics of The SOng
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 raising from the ground
like a SKYSCRAPer
As the smoke clears, i awaken
and untangle yo form me,
does it make you feel better,
to watch me while i bleed.
all my window are still broken
but I'm standing on my feet.
Go run run run
I'm gonna stay right here
watch you disappear
go run run run
yeah its a long way down
but i am closer to the clouds up here
I think the chorus is saying that, even if you hurt someone in either way you can still stay strong just like a skyscraper. I think this because
in the lyrics it says
you can take everything i have you can break everything I am like I'm made of glass, like I'm made of paper (meaning she was fragile). go on and try to tear me down (meaning go and push her with all your words) I will be raising from the ground like a skyscraper. (She will push you out and stand up back again). I can relate to this chorus because sometimes when my siblings make me upset i just feel like they're tearing me up.
For my Lyric Talk I will be talking about the song Skyscraper by: Demi Lovato (Demetria Devonne Lovato). The genre of the song is pop, and was made in 2011, From the album un- broken. Demi was born on August 20th 1992 and is currently 22 years old. She is an American, actress, singer, and songwriter. She acted in Barney, Sonny with a chance, princess protection program, and many more. Demi also had the albums dont forget and here we go again.
In verse 2 I think Demi is trying to say that as everything clears out there is still heavy weight on her but she is gonna manage and just stand up for herself. I think this because
in the lyrics it says
as the smoke clears (she clears her mind). I awaken ( wakes up her mind), and untangle you from me ( Trys to get the bully out of her mind) Does it make o fell better to watch me while I bleed (She is trying to say does it make you feel better while she was cutting her self an all that blood came out).All my windows are still broken but I'm standing on my feet ( she is still having put downs but shes trying hard not to fall down). I couldn't relate to this verse because it talked about the times when she was cutting her self and I haven't really experienced this myself and I never want to.
I think the bridge is saying that go get out of her, she is gonna stay here and watch you get out of her life, and its a long way down but she is just gonna stay here because she dosen't want to be with you. I think this because
in the text it says
Go run run run ( This refers to go get out of my face) I'm gonna stay right here watch you disappear yeah oh. She just wants to stay where she is and watch you get out of her life. go run run run (Refers to go away get out of my face). Yeah its a long way down but I am closer to the clouds up here ( she is trying to say go on I know its a long way but im gonna just stay here in my comfort zone) she is also saying get out of my life but in a nicer way. I can relate to this Bridge because sometimes when I'm mad at someone and there being annoying or rude, I just want them to leave me alone for a bit.
Reflection / Response
After Listening to this song and researching about it, overall I will give this song an 8 out of ten. This is because it was just something you can listen to when you are feeling down. What I didn't like about the song was that it was too sad and I don't like sad songs. I would recommend this song to someone who is going through a rough patch and needs a little boost. I will also recommend this song to you if you love sad songs that make you emotional, cause its pretty sad when you think more deep into it, and put your self in Demi's shoes.
I hope you guys enjoyed the presentation, and got to know a little bit better about the song "Skyscraper". you can spot this song on the iTunes top 10 chart. Make sure you check skyscraper by Demi Lovato.
