The lyrics in the brand new song seem to reflect on the struggles behind the scenes of their 10-year-relationship, and according to reports from TMZ, two different sources say that’s exactly what she wrote the song about.https://twitter.com/MileyCyrus/status/1162213287016054785?s=20
Cyrus released “Slide Away” on Friday, featuring artwork that depicts a bottle of booze and pills floating around in a pool.
“Once upon a time it was paradise. Once upon a time I was paralyzed. I think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights. But it’s time to let it go,” the lyrics read.
The former Disney star singing about something that once was so great and that now coming to an end has people thinking she’s referring to her 10-year relationship with Liam.
While both parties have personally kept the reasons for their break-up private, sources close to the situation seem to have conflicting stories coming from both sides of the fence.
Sources close to Miley told TMZ that she tried desperately to save her relationship, but grew tired of Liam’s apparent partying. On the other hand, Liam’s side stated that the drug and alcohol accusations were only used a cover for Miley’s recent outrageous public behavior.Though we won’t know for sure which side–if either–is what led these two to split, Miley does makes a drug and alcohol reference in the song, saying, “I want my house in the hills. Don’t want the whisky and pills. I don’t give up easily but I don’t think I’m down.”https://www.instagram.com/p/BwnO8H7ncT9/
While he didn’t hint at the cause of their separation, Liam did issue a public statement on his Instagram page following those pictures of Miley cuddled up with Brody Jenner’s former boo Kaitlynn Carter, writing:
Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward.
This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets. Any reported quotes attributed to me are false.
Peace and Love.”
