Like a Skyscraper by Kerli

Kerli is my new musical-fashionista obsession.










She was born in 1987 in Estonia Russia to a mother who was a social worker and an abusive father who was an auto mechanic.  Music became her escape.  At 16 she dropped out of school and pursued a career in music.  She wrote the smash hit song Skyscraper for Demi Lovato who definitely does it justice.  I think we can all relate to the words and emotion behind this very powerful song.  
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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/d/demi_lovato/skyscraper.html ]
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
Go run run run yeah it's a long way down
But I'm 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
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

Kerli has not recorded this song, but here she is singing it in a store in Chicago.  It's raw, it's real and it makes me wanna cry (in a good way).


Here is Demi Lovato singing her song, it's a pretty freaking powerful song!
