What Miley Cyrus’s ‘Used to Be Young’ Lyrics Say About How She Sees Her Life


Miley Cyrus put enormous care into the words she sings in her new track “Used to Be Young.” The singer shared the lyrics to the track three days before its August 25 release. She shared that she originally wrote the song over a year ago while working on her album Endless Summer Vacation, then kept at it.

“These lyrics were written almost 2 years ago at the beginning of my ESV. It was at a time I felt misunderstood,” the 30-year-old star wrote on Instagram. “I have spent the last 18 months painting a sonic picture of my perspective to share with you. The time has arrived to release a song that I could perfect forever. Although my work is done, this song will continue to write itself everyday. The fact it remains unfinished is a part of its beauty. That is my life at this moment ….. unfinished yet complete.”

The song was released at midnight, and in the video, Cyrus appears emotional and dressed in a Mickey Mouse tank, a clear reference to her Disney Channel child star days.

Take in the lyrics below, where Cyrus poignantly reflects on her wild child reputation and growing up.

Verse 1:
The truth is bulletproof
There’s no fooling you
I don’t dress the same

Me and who you say
I was yesterday
Have gone our separate ways

Left my living fast
Somewhere in the past
Cause that’s for chasing cars

Turns out open bars
Lead to broken hearts
And going way too far

Chorus:

I know I used to be crazy
I know I used to be fun
You say I used to be wild
I say I used to be young

You tell me time has done changed me
That’s fine, I’ve had a good run
I know I used to be crazy
That’s cause I used to be young

Verse 2

Take one, pour it out
It’s not worth crying about
The things you can’t erase

Like tattoos and regrets
Words I never meant
And ones that got away

Left my living fast
Somewhere in the past
And took another road

Turns out crowded rooms
Empty out as soon
There’s somewhere else to go ohhhhh

Chorus:

I know I used to be crazy
I know I used to be fun
You say I used to be wild
I say I used to be young

You tell me time has done changed me
That’s fine, I’ve had a good run
I know I used to be crazy
That’s cause I used to be young

Bridge:

Ohhhhh

Post-Chorus:

I know I used to be crazy
Messed up but god, was it fun
I know I used to be wild
That’s cause I used to be young

Chorus:

Those wasted nights are not wasted
I remember every one
I know I used to be crazy
That’s cause I used to be young

You tell me time has done changed me
That’s fine, I’ve had a good run
I know I used to be crazy
That’s cause I used to be young
