Jaded
Miley Cyrus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't wanna call and talk too long
I know it was wrong, but never said I was sorry
Now I've had time to think it over
We're much older and the bone's too big to bury

Oh, isn't it a shame that it ended like that?
Said goodbye forever, but you never unpacked
We went to Hell, but we never came back

I'm sorry that you're jaded
I could've taken you places
You're lonely now and I hate it
I'm sorry that you're jaded

You're not even willing to look at your part
You just jump in your car and head down to the bar 'til you're blurry
Don't know when to stop, so you take it too far
I don't know where you are and I'm left in the dark 'til I'm worried
Oh, and it hurts me

And it's a fucking shame that it ended like that
You broke your own heart, but you'd never say that
We went to Hell, but we never came back

I'm sorry that you're jaded (jaded)
I could've taken you places (places)
You're lonely now and I hate it
I'm sorry that you're jaded

I won't lie, it won't be easy
When somebody new's on your body
I'll change my number but keep your T-shirt
I don't mind it's torn up and faded

I'm sorry that you're jaded (jaded)
I could've taken you places (places)
You're lonely now and I hate it
I'm sorry that you're jaded





I'm sorry that you're jaded

Overall Meaning

In "Jaded," Miley Cyrus sings about a past lover who is still holding onto the hurt from their failed relationship. The first verse speaks to the idea that the singer knows they did something wrong in the relationship but never apologized for it. Now that they've had time to reflect on what went wrong, they believe it's too late to make amends. The chorus expresses remorse for the other person's jadedness, implying that if the singer had done things differently, the other person could have had a better outcome.


The second verse describes the other person's actions after the relationship ended. They turn to drinking to numb the pain and avoid facing their own part in the break-up. They seem to be stuck in a cycle of hurting themselves and avoiding dealing with their emotions. Despite the clear pain that the other person is experiencing, the singer still cares about them and wishes things could be different.


Overall, "Jaded" is a song about regret and the difficulty of moving on from a relationship that ended badly. The singer expresses sorrow for their own mistakes but also for the pain that their former partner continues to endure. The lyrics suggest that even after time has passed, it can be hard to find a path towards healing and closure.
