  • 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

    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 am 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
    Oh
    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
    Oh, oh, like a skyscraper Writer/s: Kerli Koiv, Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad
