Music Monday – Wrecking Ball

Anyone who meets me knows I love music. I love all types… ummm okay I love most types of music. For me its about the lyrics and what it is the artist is talking about or what message they are trying to convey. I love to dissect a song and its lyrics completely. Every Monday I want to post a song that either inspires me, makes me think about the world we live in, motivates me to always be who I am or may be something I was feeling at some point. It will be a great mix of different types of music and hope it will also do the same for you. I love to think that music captures what so many of us may be feeling or want to say, but don’t know how.

SONG – Wrecking Ball

ARTIST – Miley Cryus

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, 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 blazing fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah you, 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 win
I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
I guess I should’ve let you win

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 blazing fall
All you ever did was wreck me
Yeah you, you wreck me
Yeah you, you wreck me

LISTEN TO IT HERE – Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus

WHY I PICKED IT – I remember hearing this song on the radio a while back and had no clue who sung it, but the lyrics struck a chord with me. Then a few days ago no joke I heard it again and found out it was Miley Cyrus who sung it. For some reason I couldn’t believe it. Since then though I have played this song over and over and OVER AGAIN. I just can’t get enough of it. For some reason I feel like this song describes a portion of my relationship with the man I love in Cairo. We always joked how crazy it was that from the moment I arrived in Cairo I change both his life and mine for ever. I feel like the lyrics capture the beginning of our relationship and then also what we are dealing with now post me leaving Egypt. I know I said I wouldn’t write about our situation anymore but I never said I would stop sharing songs I can relate to or feel like they convey what we are both going through. I’ve never been a huge Miley fan, but her singles have always been great and fun dance anthems. This song though is complete opposite from that… it’s just a song full of so much emotion I can barely handle it. The video just came out today and I just now saw it… it’s a crazy video and I know it’s a cry from Miley to get attention, but in the end this is who she is so we should just LEAVE MILEY ALONE!!!

“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”

THAT IS HIM & I

“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 STILL WANT HIM & IT’S MAKING MY LIFE CRAZY

“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, you wreck me”

I SERIOUSLY CAME IN LIKE A WRECKING BALL & IT WRECKED MY LIFE
IT WRECKED MY LIFE IN THE MOST AMAZING WAY POSSIBLE

What we are going through has not been easy, but I have faith we will figure things out.

At least I hope so…

  2. I love this song too! The video is a little strange, but I have to give her props- she takes risks and that is what makes an artist stand out from the mundane crowd! Thanks for featuring this! :)

  3. Jaime- you turned me on to this song & I am madly in love with it.
    I hate that I can relate to her tears, heartache, and outcry!
    But I love how she expresses her raw emotions. There is a connection between artist and viewer.

    You always say music heals and can get us to the next step in life, but this one just reminds of the agony and pain we are in. Like Miley says, he wil never be able to say I walked away.

    I love you and I hope the wrecking ball strikes again for your in a positive way.
