AceShowbiz - Days after announcing her split from Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus surprised fans by releasing a new song entitled "Slide Away" on Thursday, August 15. Listening to the lyrics of the song, fans start to believe that the Disney alum is addressing their breakup through the new song.
The nearly-four-minute track features Miley singing about moving on and letting go of someone, who most likely is the Australian star. "Once upon a time, it was made for us/ Woke up one day, it had turned to dust," she rhymes. "Baby, we were found, but now we're lost/ So it's time to let it go." She then refers to the time when they first met, "Move on, we're not 17/ I'm not who I used to be."
Fans quickly took to social media to share their reaction to the song, with one comparing the song to her hit "Wrecking Ball", which is also about "The Hunger Games" star. Making a reference to the lyrics of the track, another said, "Miley is going back to the city lights and Liam is going back to the ocean (Australia). Lord my heart is break."
Some others pointed out the lyrics, "Don't want the whiskey and pills," speculating that rumors of Liam having drug issues is true. One individual, meanwhile, said, "Such a personal song to release so quickly. I'm sure shes going through a lot and I'm so thankful she put those emotions in to a song for us. This is f***ing amazing. Love you Miley, you're gonna be just fine."
Miley announced her split from Liam through her rep last week, with the latter addressing their breakup in an Instagram post on Monday. "Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward," he said, adding, "I have not made, nor will I be making any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quote attributes to me are false."
