Some fans think the song is about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth

Fans noticed a few references to the beach in Miley Cyrus’ music and her life. In her song “Malibu,” Miley Cyrus discussed how she never saw the ocean as a child but found an appreciation for the beach inadvertently because of her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

In this new song, “Slide Away,” she says that the subject of the song will slide away back to the ocean, while she’ll move back into the city. Another clue that this song is about Liam Hemsworth is due to the lyrics, “Move on; we’re not 17 / I’m not who I used to be.” Fans on Twitter took notice of these hints.

“Miley and Liam met on the set of The Last Song, a beach film. When she and him got back together, she released ‘Malibu,’ a beach track and video and now she’s telling Liam to slide away back to the ocean. She’s officially done,” said one Twitter user.

“I’m telling y’all, don’t listen to Miley Cyrus’ ‘Malibu’ and ‘Slide Away’ after each other,” said another Twitter user. “You’re just gonna end up breaking your own heart. I still can’t believe that they’re over.”
