Review

Demi has had a breakup.  But she's going to get back on her feet, nay, she's going to get so back on her feet that she's a thousand feet high.

Her little gasps as she sings at full volume, and whispering, makes this a memorable ballad for me.

Nice useful expressions like me hace daño - it hurts me/it pains me.

llevar - can, of course, mean to take away (not as in a burger, but to remove something), just never thought of it as outside the meal context.

Rendir - to give up.   Hard one to remember but apparently the English very render (most commonly: provide, process, transform etc.)  can be used to mean 'surrender' also.   Ha! I just typed a cognate;  surRender.    Demi sings the 'r' exquisite.

Juro - to swear.  I noticed the uncommon Spanish 'J' is often used with legal matters.

Dar + cuenta is a phase meaning "to notice/to realise".  Which will be very useful I'm sure in daily life. 

Levantar is used as a term in construction.

Despedir - to fire/dismiss or to say goodbye to someone.  Another one that seems hard to remember at first; but look it has 'pedir' in it - pedir means to 'demand or order' e.g order a dish.  The des- prefix makes it negative.

Of course there's the English version, but then it seems Demi has not been using the translator :)
