Wonder Woman
Miley Cyrus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She's a wonder woman
She knows what she likes
Never know she's broken
'Cause she's always fine
She's a million moments
Lived a thousand lives
Never know she's hopeless
Only when she cries

When her favorite record's on and she's dancin' in the dark
She can't stop her eyes from wellin' up, up
She makes sure that no one's 'round to see her fall apart
She wants to be the one that never does

She's a won't-stop woman
Hours on her hands
All her pain is polished
All her tears are planned

But when her favorite record's on and she's dancin' in the dark
She can't stop her eyes from wellin' up, up
She makes sure that no one's 'round to see her fall apart
She wants to be the one that never does

She's a wonder woman
She knows what she likes




Never know she's broken
Only when she cries, mm-mm

Overall Meaning

Miley Cyrus’s song “Wonder Woman” is about a woman who appears strong and composed on the surface, but is struggling with her emotions and inner pain. The lyrics describe how this woman has “lived a thousand lives” and experienced a million moments, but is still able to present herself as if everything is fine. The song portrays her as a “wonder woman” who is capable of achieving anything she wants and knows exactly what she likes.


Despite this, the song highlights the woman’s vulnerability and the fact that she is not invincible. When she is alone and dancing to her favorite record in the dark, she cannot help but cry and feel emotional. She hides this side of herself from others and makes sure that nobody sees her fall apart. Ultimately, the message of the song is that no matter how strong someone may appear on the outside, everyone has their own struggles and moments of weakness.


Overall, “Wonder Woman” is a powerful and emotional song that encourages listeners to recognize that even the most seemingly put-together people have their own struggles and insecurities.
