I came in like a wrecking ballI never hit so tough in loveAll I wanted was to break your wallsAll you ever before did was break me


This line was sung by Miley Cyrus in the song "Wrecking Ball," composed by Dr. Luke, Mozella, Kiyanu Kim, Stephan Moccio, Sacha Skarbek, and Cirkut, from the album Bangerz (2013).

In "Wrecking Ball," Miley Cyrus states goodbye to Micvital Mouse forever as the former Hannah Montana turned into a beautiful, breakable breakup song queen.

But he chose to build a huge old wall and also throw in a moat and some fierce alligators to store Miley out of his emotional life. That"s pretty sad.

Breakups suck, but an excellent breakup song, prefer "Wrecking Ball," can be a nice break from negative feels. Just do not run a crane or actual wrecking sphere unmuch less you have actually a demolition permit.

Where you"ve heard it

"Wrecking Ball" was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also you probably heard it if you turned on a radio or sat in a public area in 2013 or 2014.

(We didn"t recognize that was still a thing, however supposedly it is.)

In a surpincreasing intersee, 50 Cent shelp that "Wrecking Ball" is his go-to karaoke song. Because doing "In Da Club" or "Candy Shop" would certainly be also a lot of an ego expedition, we guess.
