Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We were good, we were gold
Kinda dream that can't be sold
We were right 'til we weren't
Built a home and watched it burn

Mm, I didn't wanna leave you
I didn't wanna lie
Started to cry, but then remembered I

I can buy myself flowers
Write my name in the sand
Talk to myself for hours
Say things you don't understand
I can take myself dancing
And I can hold my own hand
Yeah, I can love me better than you can

Can love me better
I can love me better, baby
Can love me better
I can love me better, baby

Paint my nails cherry red
Match the roses that you left
No remorse, no regret
I forgive every word you said

Ooh, I didn't wanna leave you, baby
I didn't wanna fight
Started to cry, but then remembered I

Overall Meaning

In "Flowers," Miley Cyrus sings about a relationship that ended due to dishonesty and disappointment. She reminisces on the good times they shared, describing their love as "good" and "gold." They had built a home together, but it was destroyed, likely a metaphor for their relationship. While it's clear that Miley was hurt, she ultimately discovers that she doesn't need her ex-partner to make her happy. In fact, she declares that she can love herself better than they ever could.


The chorus repeats the phrase "I can love me better than you can." Miley lists several ways in which she can care for herself, from buying herself flowers and writing her name in the sand to holding her own hand and taking herself dancing. She concludes that she can "love me better" than her former partner ever could. It's a triumphant declaration of self-love and a reminder that we don't always need someone else to complete us.


One interesting aspect of this song is that it features a sample of a voicemail left by Miley's father Billy Ray Cyrus. He says, "Hey Miley. It's your dad, it's 5:46 in Nashville, Tennessee, and uh, I was just listening to the playback of the new album. I'm so proud of you, girl. On so many different levels. You know, you've always been honest. You've always been true. I hope that people get to see that through this music. I love you." This voicemail adds a personal touch to the song and reinforces the theme of self-love and growth.

YOU WONT WIN AN ARGUMENT WITH HIM & YOU CANT DEFEND ANY OF YOUR SINS TO HIM. YOU'RE NOT A GOOD PERSON, I'M NOT A GOOD PERSON... ONLY GOD IS GOOD!

THE GOSPEL OF ALMIGHTY GOD 💫

Almighty God says,
      GOD'S 6000 year PLAN of GOVERNMENT is NEARLY COMING to an END, AND THE GATE of THE KINGDOM HAS BEEN OPENED for ALL WHO SEEK his DISPLAY.
DEAR BROTHERS and SISTERS, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? ☀️
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
ARE YOU WAITING for GOD to APPEAR?
ARE YOU LOOKING for HIS FOOTSTEPS?
HOW EAGERLY AWAITING the REVELATION of GOD!
And HOW DIFFICULT it is to FIND GOD'S FOOTSTEPS! IN an AGE like TODAY, in a WORLD LIKE THIS, WHAT MUST WE DO to WITNESS the DAY of GOD'S REVELATION? ☀️
What must we do to follow in God's footsteps? SUCH QUESTIONS are FACED by ALL WHO WAIT for GOD to APPEAR.
You’ve thought about it all not just once --- but what was the outcome?
Where does God appear? Where are God's footsteps? DID YOU GET THE ANSWER? ☀️
Many people will respond thus: “God appears in the midst of those who follow Him and His footsteps are in our midst,‘ It is so simple!
Anyone can give a formulaic answer, but do you understand what it means to appear in God or in His footsteps?
The APPEARANCE of GOD refers to HIS COMING TO EARTH TO DO HIS WORK PERSONALLY.
With HIS OWN IDENTITY and DISPOSITION and IN A WAY NATURAL in HIM, HE COMES DOWN TO HUMANITY to PERFORM the WORK OF BEGINNING an AGE AND ENDING an AGE. This type of demonstration is not a kind of ceremony. It is not some kind of big vision, and especially it is not a religious process.
IT is a REAL and ACTUAL FACT that ANYONE CAN TOUCH and SEE. This kind of demonstration is not to act mechanically, or for any urgent action, ’rather, it is for a phase of work in His PLAN OF MANAGEMENT.
GOD'S REVELATION is ALWAYS MEANINGFULNESS and ALWAYS has some CONNECTION to HIS PLAN of
MANAGEMENT. THE SO--CALLED “revelation” HERE is QUITE DIFFERENT FROM the KIND of “revelation” IN WHICH GOD GUIDES, LEADS, and ENLIGHTENS MAN. ☀️
GOD CARRIES OUT a PHASE of HIS GREAT WORK WHENEVER HE REVEALS HIMSELF.
This WORK is DIFFERENT FROM the WORK of ANY OTHER AGE.
It CANNOT be THOUGHT of MAN, and it HAS NEVER been EXPERIENCED by MAN. It is a WORK that BEGINS a NEW AGE and ENDS an OLD AGE, and it is a NEW and IMPROVED KIND of WORK for the SAFETY of HUMANITY, 'In ADDITION, it is a WORK in the PAST.
THIS IS THE MEANING OF GOD'S
REVELATION. 🌺
Once you understand what it means to appear in God, how should you seek in God’s footsteps? This question is not difficult to explain: Where God appears, there you will find His footsteps.
This explanation seems very straightforward, but it is not easy in reality, because many people do not know where God appears, much less where He wants, or where He should, appear.

Such some suddenly believe that wherever the Holy Spirit works, there God manifests or otherwise they believe that wherever there are spiritual people, there God manifests. Or else they believe that wherever there are famous people, there God appears.
For now, let us set aside whether such beliefs are right or wrong to explain such a question, we must first have a clear purpose. We seek in the footsteps of God. We are not looking for spiritual people, much less we are looking for the famous, we are looking for the footsteps of God. THEREFORE, since we SEEK the FOOTSTEPS of GOD, we must SEEK the WILL of GOD, the WORDS of GOD, the REVELATIONS of GOD--- because WHEREVER there are the NEW WORDS that GOD SPOKE, there are GOD'S VOICE, and WHEREVER the FOOTSTEPS of GOD ARE, there are the WORKS of GOD. WHEREVER the REVELATION of GOD IS, THERE GOD APPEARS, THERE the TRUTH, the WAY, and the
LIFE EXIST. ☀️
In seeking in God’s footsteps, you have ignored the words “GOD is the TRUTH, the WAY, and the LIFE”. 🌺
And so, many people, even though they have received the TRUTH, do not believe that they have seen the footsteps of God, and especially they do not acknowledge the manifestation of God. Extreme mistake! The manifestation of God cannot be reconciled with human assumptions, and even more cannot God appear according to the command of man.
God makes His own decisions and His own plans when He does His work, 'moreover, He has His own purposes, and His own methods.
No matter what work He does, He does not have to discuss it with the person or ask for its advice, especially to let each person know about His work.
THIS IS the DISPOSITION of GOD, which MUST, MOREOVER be ACKNOWLEDGED by ALL.
IF YOU WANT to WITNESS the APPEARING of GOD, FOLLOW in the FOOTSTEPS of GOD, then YOU SHOULD FIRST LEAVE YOUR OWN THOUGHTS. YOU SHOULD NOT COMMAND GOD TO DO THIS or THAT, ESPECIALLY YOU SHOULD NOT KEEP HIM TO YOUR OWN BOUNDARIES and LIMIT HIM TO YOUR OWN OPINIONS.
INSTEAD, YOU SHOULD ASK HOW you WILL SEEK in GOD’S FOOTSTEPS, HOW you WILL RECEIVE GOD’S REVELATION, and HOW you WILL SUBMIT to GOD’S NEW WORK: This is what man is to do.☀️
BECAUSE MAN IS NOT TRUTH AND DOES NOT CONTAIN TRUTH, HE MUST SEEK, RECEIVE, AND OBEY.☀️

       From, "THE WORD Appears In The Flesh"

💌 all are led here!
It stands in the air or in our generation it is Youtube!
          His kingdom that came down from heaven "THE CHURCH OF ALMIGHTY GOD"💐
          (so NOW that HE has COME AGAIN, He has brought the last age or last day and ended the Age of Grace and redemption and man entered the Age of the Kingdom or Age of the Word).
This is the fulfillment of
          (Matthew 16:18) The Lord Jesus said, "And I say to you, Peter, UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH, which even the power of death will not prevail against. "
And prophecy of Him changing a new Name
          (Revelation 2:17 and 3:12)
"To those who overcome I will give the hidden food from heaven. I will also give each of them a WHITE STONE (white stone means holy Church) on which a NEW NAME is written, which no one knows except the one who receives it." And
       "He that overcometh I will make a pillar in the TEMPLE of my God, and he shall not be removed from it forever.
        I will engrave on him the NAME of my God, and the name of the CITY of my God, the NEW JERUSALEM  THAT WILL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN TO MY GOD. I WILL ALSO ENGRAV HIM MY NEW NAME." 🌺

Fulfillment of (Isaiah 2:2) it will be built in the air!
      " In the LAST DAY, THE MOUNTAIN ON WHICH THE TEMPLE OF JEHOVAH IS STANDING WILL RISE ABOVE ALL THE MOUNTAINS. All the nations will come to it.💌

Color of Money State of Address made in USA
Going around in circles ( circuits ), chasing after one another for the color of money, taking chances or welfare through inter-connecting passages , crossroads and Windows (MSN) trying to control the animal in one, from the pit of debt of desire, an emotions in the matrix. $
Dollar, Dollar Bills
Pressing the economics further, less than rich is most in debt, an the back bone of the rich, and the flesh and blood for the animal, All in the name of what, property values. The color of money makes people go wild an adds to its fire. Let me give it to you in other terms, terms you can understand. They cut it like Bolvin coca, Afghani opium and Libyan oil, cut like silver and gold. Lords that have strings tied to the money, an every dollar in its web, hooking the foolish fish in the sea into its financial threshold.
Bending indexes, the color of money, dollars, dollar bills and currencies on a spectrum in a temple dimension, attracting interest . A twenty/eighty cut is knot well/fare, it cuts like a knife, a double edge sword, it gives with one and takes with two, we want face value, the whole in one, par , one over one, knot promises or the color of money, that s blinding you.
" O say can you see," ... the twilight...
Blind and color blind? So cover your eyes, and listen," and listen to your sub conscious . Its a figment of your imagination that's running wild like a bull, a shift to red , so let me give you the 20/20, the whole 9/1/1 doppler tax free fix, in the city that never sleeps. Its supply and demand. They build it up and take them down , and the penny is losing one for everyone made. The nickel cant hold its weight , but its losing, an its face value is deceiving the public eye, so save what you can .
They cant afford it or don't have it to give away, nor can they make anymore, Its coming from the blood that is spilling from the holes in ones pocket and clothing, and the bodies that are falling. Desire is working ten times harder for ten times less and buying things ten times over exhausting its horns and pleasures. At the end of the sale, and day , after all the hands have taken a pinch out of the dollar , dollar bill, one is paying with the bottom dollar, and by the time it gets home to its family, its taxed for the waste, so save what you can.
Either way I, the self, put it , between the differences , it gives one the sum of the hole, the color of money and the same sum and truth ,the wholesumtruth. Now that the money can be made at home , it does not give one the right to cut it out of a sheet of metal and stamp it with a dye, or (DIO ?), " O, Alice, your the Greatest ", its de-facing the value . " Its not what your country can do for you , but what you can do for your country." " We the people", put our trust in the government, ( each other), to provide honest scales and due process, but those who aren't themselves are favoring one side, one side of the scale, the dark side, even though the wind is not for sale, it gives one direction and shows the way , an only a fool doesn't pay attention to signs, lining its pockets , the holes in its clothing with the blood on its hands. Those who live by it , live by the dollar , dollar bill , fall by it, and those who trust in it, give its power and right over their lives, ( soul) . " O, say can you see"
The only one who cares for a title, is lost and needs to be found, an in need of a personality, the individual, and needed to be served with love and sincerity. The servant , common worker, the confidence and capital from whom has a title paid for, is free of, and develops its independence from a co-dependent sovereign and shadow government. " O say, can you see"... the twilight...
They promise them heaven, a spot in the light an all they can eat, and give them hell for it, leaving them to the wicked , emotional trials and shadows , silhouettes that have no eyes , but still can see. So ," Take down these walls". " Four score and seven"
We were given stripes , color and life , light for a conscious , a lamp of knowledge (law) , a guiding light, and land to harvest. The brave to boycott, pro/test, protest in writing; Declare Independence, and reveal the truth and reap what's sowed. Fear not, fear only one-self , "we are not left to live under ourselves " , we have been brought to consciousness , life, and Yahweh ( Jah e vah ) (יהוה ) . Compose yourselves, bring yourselves together, because no matter how much one celebrates it will not raise the dead, nor bring back those who have passed, and neither free one from the misery and trial its been living.
" O , say can you see..." " The fault is not in the stars , but in ourselves."

After listening to this song yesterday, I got motivated, I took myself out today, bought things I liked, then went alone to dance at night, had fun...when celebrities make such songs and present such beautiful ideas of treating yourself beautifully and needing no one, that's powerful. Impacted me beautifully! Thank you Miley..
