You
Miley Cyrus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow.
Been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin's not right it's wrong
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love,
It's always hit me from below.
This time around it's more correct
Right on target, so direct,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Anne lace,
Crimson hair across your face,
You could make me cry if you don't know.
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy,
Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme,
Blue river runnin' slow and lazy,
I could stay with you forever
And never realize the time.

Situations have ended sad,
Relationships have all been bad.
Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud.
But there's no way I can compare
All those scenes to this affair,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm doin',
Stayin' far behind without you.
Yer gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin',
Yer gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.

I'll look for you in old Honolulu,
San Francisco, Ashtabula,
Yer gonna have to leave me now, I know.
But I'll see you in the sky above,




In the tall grass, in the ones I love,
Yer gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics in Miley Cyrus's song You and Me Together express the fear of losing someone she loves deeply. The author describes how, in the past, she has seen love go by her door but never as close as it is now. This most recent time is different, as it is slow and easy. The author has been in too many wrong relationships and has been used to shooting in the dark for too long. Nevertheless, this one is right on target, and the author fears that her loved one's eventual departure will make her feel lonely.


The second verse contains distinct imageries that are related to the relationship between the author and her loved one. The dragon clouds, purple clover, Queen Anne lace, and crimson hair across her face symbolize the unpredictability of this love. The author has been in love before, but none of them had ever affected her as significantly as the present one. The line "yer gonna make me lonesome when you go" in every verse represents a fear of losing her lover to another lover, death, or circumstances beyond her control. Finally, she concludes that despite the inevitable separation in the future, she will always remember and cherish the intimate moments they've shared.
