Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Hook]
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

[Chorus 1]
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


[Verse 2]
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


[Pre-Hook]
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


[Chorus 1]
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


[Chorus 2]
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

[Bridge]
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


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


[Chorus 1]
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


[Chorus 2]
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. 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!

    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.

    This song goes deeper than "emotional wrecking" its honestly an apparent romance gone completely tragic. I think every line has a certain meaning to it.
    "we clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain." Basically she's saying they always fought and were always upset with eachother.
    "we jumped... Never asking why." This is quite obvious. She's saying they jumped to far in the relationship (their engagsment) she was only 19. And they thought they were so in love, they jumped at such a big decision in life, and never thought of what would come, let alone why exactly.
    "We kissed. I feel under your spell... A love, no one could deny." They kissed while filming The Last Song and basically thought it was instant, and everyone agreed. Making things worse, not at the moment, but to come.
    "Don't you ever say; I just walked away, I will always want you." She's telling him, sparsely, when they do breakup, don't he dare say she just walked away from him, she'll always love him.
    "I can't live a lie, running for my life." She's saying she's being who she is, and who she wants to he. She can't be a fake little disney girl for her whole life.
    "I came in like a wrecking ball. I never hit so hard in love. All i wanted was to break your walls" No one ever quite knew who wanted who. And she's saying she thinks she nearly forced their relationship. She fell in love with him but came on to strong, all she wanted to do was break his quiet walls.
    "all you ever did was... Wreck me." Instead of breaking his walls, he wrecked her emotionally everytime she tried to get him to be free.
    "I put you high up in the sky and now, you're not coming down." Liam is obviously more famous because of his relationship with her. He's gone on to star in blockbuster movies ever since they started dating. Now she's telling him he's a big-headed douche who needs to hop of cloud 9.
    "It slowly turned. You let me burn and now, we're ashes on the ground". Quite hard to make out, but she's saying as he got more popular and famous, his personality towards them and her changed and they're relationship began to flame, ultimately ending in flames.
    "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." She's telling him once more to not lie about her and telling him she needs to he who she wants to be, and if he's not game with that, that's another problem they'll try and fix.
    "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." She's stating her breaking heart once more, this time with a little anger.
    "I came in like a wrecking ball. Yeah I just closed my eyes and swung." She's saying she closed her eyes and let everything fall, when she thought he finally had let lose.
    "left me crashing in a blaze and fall. All you ever did was wreck me." She soon realized she didnny break his walls, he made her think she did, when actually, he made her look like a dumb-in-love idiot and wrecked her emtions and take on romance even more.
    "Yeah you... You wreck me." She's letting him know. This time in somewhat disbelief, like she can't believe he's literally broken her.
    "I never meant to start a war... I just wanted you to let me in." Miley's frightened she had started a war with her partner, an evil war that's gonna end tragically, when all she wanted was to let him let her in, and make him let loose, hopefully falling deeply in love.
    "And instead of using force... I guess I should have let you win." She realizes maybe she shouldn't have forced him to break his barrier. Maybe she should have let him be himself, and sooner or later break away, and she wouldn't be in tragic dispair.
    "i never meant to start a war! I just wanted you to let me in... I guess I should have let you win..." She feels horrible and feels as if its her fault he's breaking her heart.
    "Don't you ever say; I just walked away. I will always want you." She emtionally ends all with him. But wants him to know; please don't talk down on me. I love you. I always will. Bur its over.
    "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 blaze and fall, All you ever did was.. Wreck me." Even though she maybe over with him. She looks back at show came off as a little to strong, pushing him away, causing them both to live a lie in love. Tragically ending and wrecking her emotionally after dealing with such pain.
    "Yeah you... You wre-e-ecked me." Once more, even though it may have been slightly her fault. She's telling him, you did break my heart. All I wanted was love. And I guess you didn't.

    Omfg! Why does this song have to be 'suitable for children again'? Some poster up there? Riley passed the age of sexual consent in america years ago. 16! And she's been an adult for 3 years! The day she turned18 that ship sailed. She's 20 so get over it. Look up her snl performance of the song. Truly heartbreaking and amazing and if you knew anything, the hammer is a symbol of thors hammer. Uh the part her former fiancee played. Who the song is about!

    Miley. We Loved the old you. But as others say. It's your life. You hold your future. Don't listen to haters and be yourself. But also limit yourself. You also have young audiences and fans. We love the meaning of your songs. How you express yourself so much when singing. Just remember, don't imitate other stars, how they became the spotlight again just because of a lame reason. Let all your sorrow and pain out then start again. There will always hate but there will always love. Goodluck in your life. We will always love you!
