Skyscraper lyrics


(The X Factor UK Winner)

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!

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 on run run run
I'm gonna stand by here
Watch you disappear, yeah
Go on run run run
YEAH, IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN
But I am closer to the clouds from 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
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
