All the Signs Miley Cyrus' New Song "Slide Away" Is About Her Breakup With Liam Hemsworth

By

Miley Cyrus dropped her new breakup single "Slide Away" on August 15, and while she doesn't mention Liam Hemsworth by name, the lyrics certainly seem to indicate she's singing about a certain Australian ex.

The song debuted less than one week after Miley and Liam announced their split. So what does it all mean? Let's break down the lyrics of "Slide Away" by Miley Cyrus together...

In "Slide Away," Miley Cyrus sings about a relationship that's run its course.

This song is a far cry from "Malibu," the loved-up ballad Miley released in 2017. In "Slide Away," Miley sings, "Once upon a time, it was paradise/ Once upon a time, I was paralyzed/ Think I'm gonna miss these harbor lights/ But it's time to let it go."
