Biography
Almost too many things have been written about Miley Cyrus, and much of it focuses on gossip rather than her talent. Born to country star Billy Ray Cyrus in 1992, it was inevitable that she would become a singer or performer of some sort. Making her way via the Disney Channel and her smash hit show "Hannah Montana", Miley transitioned into pop stardom and has proven herself to be more than just a Disney kid. Her debut album in 2008 went platinum and her subsequent recordings have all reached into the tops of the charts. She has toured several times and she released her 2015 album online, for free, following her gig as the host of the MTV Music Video Awards for that year.

Looking past the video this song has a lot of meaning behind it. I see it as describing an incredibly abusive relationship, both physically and verbally.
In the first verse you see two people falling madly in love and doing all things relating too. The couple took risks and shared passionate kisses. And in his case Miley "fell under [his] spell". But looking deeper in the first line you see red flags arising even before the relationship is in full swing. "We clawed, we chained" sure one could see it as fighting for someone out of love and willing to go through any lengths to save a relationship, but these words are very harsh and could be an inference to the abuse that will occur later on.
Then in the second verse, you can assume he takes her for granted because she puts him so high up but he can never come down. His ego may make him feel untouchable.
Then you see the true abuse in the refrain. She "came in like a wrecking ball" which signifies her powerful love for him but all he ever did was "wreck me". He was bad for her, maybe with violent beatings or harsh words. Another line that gives insight is "don't you ever say I just walked away". This is almost a snap at the man as she is threatening him if he ever gives that excuse when their split comes up in conversation. Miley is saying that she gave it all she got, she didn't just "walk away" when things were at their worst.
In the bridge you hear Miley's last attempt to somewhat apologize or rather reflect on this crazy yet horrible love. She says she "never meant to start a war" and she wanted him to "let me in". She had pure intentions but he clearly did not honor them.
Just the imagery of a wrecking ball is condusive to an abusive relationship and beyond falling madly in love, the wrecking ball symbolizes the destructive powers that love can have on somebody if it is unhealthy or flat out dangerous.
