Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus




The Experience: Love broke in like a wrecking ball. Powerful, going all the way, but it crashed. Miley's left confused, ashes on the ground. Looking back, she blinks to say, All you ever did was wreck me

Music Video: The message just doesn't get across in the official video. Half the time Miley's in her underwear, the other half without even that on. She tongues a sledgehammer and practices pole dancing on a wrecking ball's chain. She didn't learn the lesson of her wrecking ball: when a girl comes in sexually on a guy, it's like using force, to break down your walls. But you force him not to think in terms of an emotional relationship, and only think about a sexual relationship. When that relationship falls apart, who wrecked it?

My Take: Is Wrecking Ball's meaning Miley's relationship with Liam Hemsworth over? She was under his spell with a love no one could deny... How can it fail? Love isn't just a force like a wrecking ball. More than feelings or passions, you need respect and care. Miley even admits I should have let you in, instead of using force. Crouching in a blaze and fall, Miley had to learn the hard way. 

Ask Yourself: Do I think he loves me because I'm so hot he can't take his eyes off me? (That's using force) Or do I know he loves me because we can actually talk about our limits? (That's respect and care) Have I been wrecked before?


LYRICS:



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 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 crouching in a blaze and fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, 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 in

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
I guess I should've let you in
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 crouching in a blaze and fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah, you wreck me
