Skyscraper

Saturday, May 23, 2015

Skyscraper (noun) is a very tall building in a city. That’s according to Merriam-Webster. Tall and strong, piercing through the sky. A heart should be like a skyscraper. Because when a skyscraper falls down in pieces, people can rebuild it again. There will be grief, it will be hard, but we can build it all over again, even stronger than before. The art of rebuilding is never easy, but we will eventually get there, even taller than before. Therefore, a heart should be like a skyscraper. Because when it breaks apart in pieces, people can rebuild it again. There will be endeavor, it will be painful, but we can build it all over again, even stronger than before. The art of rebuilding is never simple, but we will eventually get there, even taller than before. When the heart breaks down and being shattered, we must free our spirit to rebuild it again, taller and stronger than ever.

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.” –Demi Lovato, Skyscraper

Today’s song for Free Spirit is one inspirational self-empowerment song titled “Skyscraper”, performed by Demi Lovato. The pop song was released on July 12th 2011 and served as the lead single released from Lovato’s third studio album, “Unbroken”. The song was written by Toby Gad, Lindy Robbins and Kerli Kõiv.
Life stumbles us. It always does. But when people are stumbled, it doesn’t mean that they can’t get up again. Sometimes, the downfall is the trigger for them to rebuild again, stronger and taller than ever, like a skyscraper. The lyrics of “Skyscraper” speak of staying strong and believing in ourselves, that we could stand tall and strong like a skyscraper amidst all of the destruction that life brings upon us. “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?” As human being, there’s a point in life where we’re at our worst; very sad and disappointed at the fate of love and relationship, having an awful feeling that no one deserves to understand the pain. However, we never have the chance to be happy if we focus on our struggles and let them ruin us. “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.”
As human being, we all have our own struggles and things to overcome. There’s some point in life where we can hit the lowest low and face the darkest dark. However, we can always get back up and get in the light. The obstacle is there to make us think. The downfall is there to make us learn. The pain is there to make us feel. The scar is there to make us remember. Life is here to make us live, and living is about getting up from falling, all over and over again. “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.” Life breaks us. It always does. But when people are broken, it doesn’t mean that they can’t gather it up all together again. Sometimes, the break-up is the chance for them to stand up again, taller and stronger than ever, like a skyscraper. “Go run, run, run, I’m gonna stay right here, watch you disappear. Go run, run, run, it’s a long way down, but I am closer to the clouds up here.”
The music video of “Skyscraper” was directed by Mark Pellington. Both the song and the video represent Lovato’s personal struggles and difficult journey she had been on in the past years during the release of the song. The song was critically acclaimed by music critics and also gained a commercial success in all over the world.

Go run, run, run, I’m gonna stay right here, watch you disappear. Go run, run, run, it’s a long way down, but I am closer to the clouds up here.” –Demi Lovato, Skyscraper




“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

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”
