Stone Cold - Demi Lovato





The ExperienceGod knows I tried to feel happy for you... if happy is her, I'm happy for you... Demi showcases a love strong enough to let go...



Music video: Demi Lovato sings from her bathtub, dressed in gray - that's the whole tone of heartbroken Stone Cold. Inside, Demi is working up her courage to let go... and even try to be happy for the guy she loved and loves. That's the meaning behind her winter climb up the hill. It's not an epic mountain - she's not aiming for happy, just resigned. There's no sense of satisfaction when she reaches the top - she just falls, catches her breath, and then turns to go. But that bleak feeling is what true love sometimes feels. When you love someone enough to step back and let go, it doesn't feel good. But it's still true love... maybe even epic love, love that can stand on its own with no feelings to support it.

The Meaning of Stone Cold: The truest love? Love that's strong enough to back off and let go when the person you love finds happiness with someone else. That's hard. That's painful. But it's the ultimate test of true love: you care more about their happiness than about yours - if happy is her, I'm happy for you. That doesn't make it easy - you see me standing, but I'm dying on the floor. That doesn't make it feel good - God knows I tried to feel happy for you. If you can be happy for someone while you cry inside. If you can love and support someone's happiness even when deep inside you wish you were his shade of gold instead of her... If you can't understand, but you make it through without bitterness... If you can say goodbye without bitterness... That's incredibly true love.

Ask yourself: Is your love deeper than what you feel?

LYRICS:

Stone cold, stone cold
You see me standing, but I'm dying on the floor
Stone cold, stone cold
Maybe if I don't cry, I won't feel anymore

Stone cold, baby
God knows I tried to feel
Happy for you
Know that I am, even if I
Can't understand, I'll take the pain
Give me the truth, me and my heart
We'll make it through
If happy is her, I'm happy for you

Hmmmm

Stone cold, stone cold
You're dancing with her, while I'm staring at my phone
Stone cold, stone cold
I was your amber, but now she's your shade of gold

Stone cold, baby
God knows I tried to feel
Happy for you
Know that I am, even if I
Can't understand, I'll take the pain
Give me the truth, me and my heart
We'll make it through
If happy is her, I'm happy for you

Don't wanna be stone cold, stone
I wish I could mean this but here's my goodbye
Oh, I'm happy for you
Know that I am, even if I
Can't understand
If happy is her, I'm happy for you
