"Skyscraper" - Kerli

It's basically the same as the original version by Demi Lovato. The version on here by her
had some misplaced chords so I thought I'd just clean it up and make a chord version for Kerli
(who, by the way, co-wrote the song) because I like her voice much better than Demi's. The only 
real difference is that the intro's played twice in Kerli's version.

Intro: G  C  Em  D  (2x)

Verse:
          G            C
Skies are crying, I am watching
         Em               D
Catching tear drops in my hands
     G               C
Only silence as it's ending
        Em          D
Like we never had a chance

Prechorus:
       Em              C
Do you have to make me feel like
        G               D
There's nothing left of me?

Chorus:
             G            C
You can take everything I have
              Em           D
You can break everything I am
                 G        C
Like I'm made of glass
                 Em       D
Like I'm made of paper
          Em             C
Go on and try to tear me down
          G               D
I will be rising from the ground
          Em       C
Like a skyscraper
          G        D
Like a skyscraper

Verse:
       G                C
As the smoke clears, I awaken
      Em              D
And untangle you from me
         G             Em
Would it make you feel better
   Em               D
To watch me while I bleed?

Prechorus:
       Em                C
All my windows still are broken
        G              D
But I'm standing on my feet

Chorus:
             G            C
You can take everything I have
              Em           D
You can break everything I am
                 G        C
Like I'm made of glass
                 Em       D
Like I'm made of paper
          Em             C
Go on and try to tear me down
          G               D
I will be rising from the ground
          Em       C
Like a skyscraper
          G        D
Like a skyscraper

Bridge:
Am             Em
  Go run, run, run
                     C 
I'm gonna stay right here,
               G
Watch you disappear
Am             Em
  Go run, run, run
                      C
Yeah, it's a long way down
         G                       D
But I am closer to the clouds up here

Chorus:
             G            C
You can take everything I have
              Em           D
You can break everything I am
                 G        C
Like I'm made of glass
                 Em       D
Like I'm made of paper
          Em             C
Go on and try to tear me down
          G               D
I will be rising from the ground
          Em       C
Like a skyscraper
          G        D
Like a skyscraper
          Em       C
Like a skyscraper
          G        D
Like a skyscraper
                  Em  C  G  D
Like a skyscraper


classicNote: It sounds really cool if you have a delay pedal set to the beat of the song.
I play it like that on my 12-string and it sounds guitargasmic.
