Slide Away
Miley Cyrus Lyrics


Woo ooh, woo ooh, woo ooh
Woo ooh, woo ooh, woo ooh

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
Once upon a time, it was made for us
Woke up one day, it had turned to dust
Baby, we were found, but now we're lost
So it's time to let it go

I want my house in the hills
Don't want the whiskey and pills
I don't give up easily
But I don't think I'm down

So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away

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
Once upon a time, it was made for us (for us)
Woke up one day, it had turned to dust
Baby, we were found, but now we're lost
So it's time to let it go

Move on, we're not 17
I'm not who I used to be
You say that everything changed
You're right, we're grown now

So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, I'll go back to the city lights
So won't you slide away
Back to the ocean, la la la, you'll slide away

Move on, we're not 17
I'm not who I used to be
You say that everything changed
You're right, we're grown now

@M I think I get what you were talking about. A great example to me would be the Velvet Underground or even the Strokes. The Velvet Underground had no hits and, pretty much, no sales. The only way they were known back then is because they were associated with Andy Warhol. Now, they have become known internationally as a legendary band that had a big influence on a lot of other musicians and bands down the road to now and, most likely, the coming future. In addition, they are now in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

The Strokes on the other hand came out with a popular EP that went to England and became a hit with record producers so much so that record labels were literally fighting to sign them. They ended up signing with RCA. Anyway, when they first came out, the critics hailed them and even Rolling Stone called them 'the saviors of rock.' They did and still do, have a great following. However, even with all that, they had no top 10 hits and while album sales were good, they certainly weren't considered a Beatles - worthy group in sales. But their albums have since stood the record of time. Now, 20 years later (as of this writing) they are now becoming legendary and finally, they are nominated for best rock album with 'The New Abnormal' at the Grammy Awards. Still though, there are not a ton of people who know them. But they still continue to garner fans. So we'll see in the future if they become more well known or sell more.

Anyway, I'm just saying I can see your point. But, in the end, I agree that it's the songs that count. The best thing we can do now is enjoy listening to them.

With Miley, only the future will tell how long lasting this song will be. But I also agree it should have gotten more airplay than it did because it is a masterpiece of a song. 🙌

Then again, with many great songs not getting enough airplay these days, that's a whole other argument that could be made.🤷‍♀️

see ya

Why is there a sex scene in this? Did the camera people overstep the boundaries of your home? I'm curious I won't timestamp because it's not obvious, was it an editors choice? Or is Myley going to Miami?
