After a day of teasing her new music video for “Slide Away,“ Miley Cyrus gave her fans what they’ve been itching for since she first came out with the song right after her breakup with Liam Hemsworth.
For starters, the lyrics are totally about Liam.
“Think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights” and “So won’t you slide away. Back to the ocean, I’ll go back to the city lights”
But aside from the lyrics, the video definitely has major sad breakup vibes. First off, the majority of it is Miley looking pretty lonely in the aftermath of a crazy party. The beginning of the video shows alcohol bottles and wine glasses floating in a pool.The party atmosphere could be a reference to Liam’s alleged struggle with drugs and alcohol.
Between flashes of Miley at the party and some B-roll footage, there are shots where she’s floating in a pool, looking extremely content and at peace. This could be a hint at her current state of mind and relationship with Kaitlynn Carter. Plus, at the bottom of the pool, there’s a 10 of hearts playing card, which 100 percent represents her 10-year-relationship with Liam coming to an end.
“That 10 of hearts card under water at 1:23 means so deep! 10 years of love all drowned. This video is such a masterpiece!”
