We clawed, we chained our hearts in vain
We jumped never asking why
We kissed, I fell under your spell.
A love no one could deny

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you

I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls

All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me


I put you high up in the sky
And now, you're not coming down

It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we're ashes on the ground


Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you


I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me


I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung

Left me crashing in a blazing fall
All you ever did was wreck me

Yeah, you, you wreck me

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in

And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you win

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
I guess I should've let you win


Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you


I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was wreck me


I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
Left me crashing in a blazing fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me

    I love this song so much! its deep, showing a destructive love, her lack of clothing symbolizes how she was stripped emotionally, meaning she was hurt on the inside. She kissed the sledge hammer to show shes secretly in love with pain. She is trying to tell a story of love that went wrong and destroyed her emotionally.

    I love this song. Even if the clip is inappropriate the song is beautiful. Every time I listen to this song I'm nearly in tears! Miley is going through a really hard time right now. She is just a teenager, She is going through her puberty like everyone else but with miley it is different! Every move she makes is being photographed and put online. And its also sad when her boyfriend broke up with her and a week later he was seen kissing with a top model. Everyone should just let her go and be a teenager! Leave her alone!

    firstly, miley is not a teenager. Secondly, she isn't really going through puberty...this song is amazing, but she should learn to still respect her self. she can do what she wants but she needs to remember when she auditioned for her part in hannah montanna she knew what she was getting her self into meaning paparazzi and having her life put out there all the time.

    The girl is just living life. Young wild and free. Why is it okay for guys to act in such a manner, yet when a girl does she's the biggest whore around. People shouldn't be concerned about "what type of example" she is setting forth, because first of all, your children are a mirror image of you! How you set the example before them is all that matters. No one else should be held accountable for how your child turns out.... Let the girl LIVE! Its her life. :)

    You're song was good... But your kinda turning into a monster, it's just that I hate you so much, if I were you... I would be concious of what I'm doing and I'm going back in my real life. You was my idol for the past two years but what had happened to you?! You just entered a wrong way! You were immitating the way of Lady Gaga! Are you dead serious of youre decision? Are you insane? Please go back into the past Miley Cyrus! Please! I'm really begging you.
