Lyrics

Amy with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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?

Christina with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Dani with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Katherine with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Lauren with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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

Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
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, 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

Trivia

  • Alex, Cimorelli's brother, can be heard in the bloopers.
  • Mike and Lynne Cimorelli, Cimorelli's parents, make an appearance in the bloopers.

Bloopers

Lisa: [to Alex] So, you can't turn the blender on.
Christina: Or you will die from an oven mitt.
Lisa: Put the blender in the garage! Or put it outside.
Christina: Spikes.


Christina: Shout-out to...
Lisa: My haters, sorry that you couldn't phase me.


This is what happens: I say something, and I'm right, and then Dani's wrong, and then Lisa's like "Okay, guys, just stop talking. Nope, nope!"

—Lauren

I wish Amy was my friend!
