On Friday, August 25th, the emotional song came with a simple music video that showed Miley singing along to the song with tears in her eyes.

In the first verse, Miley sings: “The truth is bulletproof, there’s no foolin’ you/ I don’t dress the same/ Me and who you say I was yesterday/ Have gone our separate ways,” referring to the public’s reaction to her growing up and leaving behind her Disney Channel persona.

“Left my livin’ fast somewhere in the past/ ‘Cause that’s for chasin’ cars/ Turns out open bars lead to broken hearts/ And goin’ way too far.”

In the chorus, which Miley shared with fans the day before the song dropped, she sings with tears in her eyes, “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 ‘causе I used to be young.”

The singer took to Instagram after the song dropped to share a bit more about the meaning behind it: “This song is about honoring who we’ve been, loving who we are & celebrating who we will become I feel proud when reflecting on my past and joyful when thinking about the future.

I am grateful to my loyal fans who make my dreams a reality daily. I am sincerely thankful for the stability of your steadfast support. This song is for you.”
