It's official – Miley Cyrus is in love, she's love and she doesn't care who knows it.
The Disney Channel alum just dropped a brand new track titled "Malibu" which could be considered an ode to her boyfriend and rumored fiance Liam Hemsworth. Not only that but Miley also released the official video for the song which features herself frolicking on the beach, through the waves and playfully laughing in a bathing suit amongst a field of tall grass. The video is serene and peaceful much like the lyrics.
Miley starts the song off by singing:
"I never came to the beach, or stood by the ocean/ I never sat by the shore, under the sun with my feet in the sand/ But you brought me here and I'm happy that you did/ 'Cause now I'm as free as birds catching the wind."
While she never says his name in the song, Miley alluded to the fact that this was about her relationship with Liam in a previous interview. So, taking that into account, it seems like she is talking about her past life. The Dead Petz Miley who would go on tour, wear scandalous outfits and have this sort of insane edge about her. Now, Liam has shown her another side of life and she feels free – more free than she did before.
"I always thought I would sink, so I never swam/ I never went boatin', don't get how they are floatin'/ And sometimes I get so scared of what I can't understand."
The lyrics continue on the fantastical path of a beautiful transformation that has taken place because of Liam. She never did all of these things because she was afraid and now that he has, metaphorically and physically, taken her hand she feels like she can conquer the world.
The chorus goes:
"But here I am, next to you/ The sky's more blue in Malibu/ Next to you in Malibu/ Next to you."
Our hearts are melting. It's almost like Miley has kind of had this sort of revelation. She gets afraid and worried. But, she's here with Liam and he isn't leaving her side in Malibu – ultimately the place these two now share a home together. If this does not paint a picture of how she really feels about him, we don't know what does! This is better than an interview, to be honest. Not to mention, throughout the entire video as she sings to Liam, her engagement ring is on FULL display. Of course, it could be a coincidence but we think not!
The lyrics go on:
"I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me/ I'd be here writing this song."
As the world knows, Miley and Liam went through a rough patch. They broke off their engagement and even dated other people. So, these lyrics kind of touch on that time. She's basically saying that she never thought this kind of love and reunion would happen. Three years ago she was in a completely different headspace and now it's all she is surrounded by – this love of Liam's. Miley has not only transformed but entered a completely different stage in her life that she never thought she'd be at.
Miley finishes off the song by singing:
"We are just like the waves that flow back and forth/ Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning/ And you're there to save me/ And I wanna thank you with all of my heart/ It's a brand new start/ A dream come true in Malibu."
And we are seriously DEAD over it. It's like she is comparing her and Liam to the waves – they are finally in unison. Finally, flowing back and forth together on the same page. She even goes so far to thank him for what he has done. She has thanked him for pulling her out of a place where she was afraid and had no one to turn to. She has thanked him for bringing her to Malibu and for this new life.
#CRYING. Miley + Liam = 4ever<3
