Wrecking Ball- Miley Cyrus Lyrics
Annotations
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 break 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 break 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 break 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 break 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 break me
Yeah, you, you wreck me
Yeah, you, you wreck me
Took things too soon?
Never going to get over him
Sound desperate
Doesn't want her ex to blame the breakup on her.
The relationship was a lie, the relationship was her life.
Didn't want things to end up this way
She was very in love
Her ex ruined her, but she changed & is
stronger than ever.
Allusion
In the song Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus she uses an obvious allusion to her relationship with Liam Hemsworth. The whole song itself is her reaction, her way of showing how she feels about the breakup, "All you ever did was wreck me" (12). It was obvious there relationship was rocky.
