The Skyscraper Songfacts says: On November 1, 2010, Demi's publicist announced the Disney star had entered a treatment facility for "physical and emotional issues," which was subsequently reported to include an eating disorder and self-cutting. Her first single since her stint in treatment finds the singer/actress finding strength in the wake of a fading relationship and it symbolizes her resilience in the face of her personal issues.
Skies are crying
I am watching
Catching teardrops in my hands
Only silence, as it's ending, like we never had a chance
