I am also a recovering heroin addict. And what you said, is it EXACTLY how I felt about the song. In fact I felt as though he may have went through himself. Keep on fighting! I have 15 months clean. Heroin was a very sorry love affair. I always referred to it as that. - Comment by mksidler 9 months ago
Usafchic17 I really liked your original post you made, I know exactly what you mean. I would really appreciate having someone to discuss my heroin addiction with at certain times and finding anyone who actually understands and isn't judgemental of things is so difficult. I would love to be able to discuss things with you though and have someone to talk about the struggle with when it gets tough. You should email me at MHeimiller87@gmail.com and I'll send you a link to my FB. I really look forward to hearing from you please : ) - Comment by MarkH87 2 years ago
I also took meaning from it relating to my addiction and my process of recovery after all the times I have given in and relapsed. The other thing about it also that fits this song well is once you are a full blown opiate addict that stuff literally takes precedence over any relationship and it becomes your only true love in life and will go above and beyond for our relationship to the drug and needle. Once you pick up a needle and try some really good product for the first time it is opening Pandora's Box and the way you see life is never the same after that, I'm clean now and go to AA/NA meetings every day and really am so over that poison, yet I'm still afraid I will relapse at some point and have cravings for it mentally and physically all the time. Especially when things are going shitty cause it's so much more tempting to turn to and always know in the back of my mind that it would make everything perfectly fine for the time being while I'm high, but then as it wears off I just slip right back into the same state I was in prior to my relapse but now even more resentful due to the relapse... It's a life or death struggle it truly is. - Comment by MarkH87 2 years ago

Same here it's nice to know I'm not the only one either. When I would try to explain to friends what I thought the song meant they looked at me like I'm insane. - Comment by K.I.S.S.12 2 years ago

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.
