Lyrics

Via Genius

[Intro]

Woo-ooh, woo-ooh, woo-ooh Woo-ooh, woo-ooh, woo-ooh

[Verse]

Once upon a time, it was paradise

Once upon a time, I was paralysed

Think I'm gonna miss these harbour lights But it's time to let it go

Once upon a time, it was made for us

Woke up one day, it had turned to dust

Baby, we were found, but now we're lost

So it's time to let it go

[Pre-Chorus]

I want my house in the hills

Don't want the whiskey and pills

I don’t give up easily

But I don't think I'm down

[Chorus]

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean,

I'll go back to the city lights

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean, la-la-la, you'll slide away

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean,

I'll go back to the city lights

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean, la-la-la, you'll slide away

[Verse]

Once upon a time, it was paradise

Once upon a time, I was paralysed

Think I'm gonna miss these harbor lights

But it's time to let it go

Once upon a time, it was made for us (For us)

Woke up one day, it had turned to dust

Baby, we were found, but now we're lost

So it's time to let it go

[Pre-Chorus]

Move on, we're not 17

I'm not who I used to be

You say that everything changed

You're right, we're grown now

[Chorus]

So won't you slide away Back to the ocean,

I'll go back to the city lights

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean, la-la-la, you'll slide away

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean,

I'll go back to the city lights

So won't you slide away

Back to the ocean, la-la-la, you'll slide away

[Outro]

Move on, we're not 17

I'm not who I used to be

You say that everything changed

You're right, we're grown now

What is 'Slide Away' about?

'Slide Away' appears to heavily reference her relationship with Liam Hemsworth, which came to an end 10 years after they first got together and eight months after they married.

In the lyric 'move on we're not seventeen', the songstress appears to hint at the time they met when she was just 17 years old and they filmed The Last Song, the movie set on which they met. The couple have of course changed a lot during that time.

Miley also sings about losing their home in the Malibu fire last year, as she sings: 'Once upon a time it was made for us... Woke up one day and it turned to dust'.

And the line 'Back to the ocean' references his love for surfing – Liam was pictured surfing in Australia shortly after his split from Miley was announced.

The new music comes after Miley and husband Liam announced their separation.

After pictures emerged of the former Hannah Montana actress kissing Kaitlynn Carter on holiday, Liam confirmed their break-up.

He wrote in a statement on Instagram: “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward. This is a private matter and I have not made, nor will I be making, any comments to any journalists or media outlets," continued the actor.

"Any reported quotes attributed to me are false."

Miley and Liam tied the knot just eight months ago in a Christmas Eve ceremony last year.
