  • Lyrics
  • This power ballad finds Cyrus declaring her love for her beau. She croons:

    "I could do this for eternity, you and me
    We're meant to be in holy matrimony
    God knew exactly what he was doing
    When he led me to you."

    This is one of the few Bangerz tracks on which Miley does not score a co-writing credit, so any thoughts that it was written about her ex fiancee Liam Hemsworth can be discounted.
  • The song was penned by the Brooklyn singer-songwriter Stacy Barthe, whose other credits include Katy Perry's "Hummingbird Heartbeat" and Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink To That)." It was produced by Oren Yorl, who helmed much of Asher Roth's Asleep In The Bread Aisle album.
  • The steamy video is a five-minute long selfie as we view Cyrus in her underwear writhing and simulating masturbation under bed sheets. We also get to see the singer posing suggestively in an overflowing bathtub while wearing a black lace playsuit.
  • An official remix by Cedric Gervais was released on March 3, 2014. French DJ Cedric Gervais is best known for his dance remix of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness," which was a worldwide hit.

  • Janice from MissouriI think most of her music is great. she is beautiful and so talented but I can enjoy her more with her clothes on. I can't watch her videos. Sad, such a talent and she feels she needs to do all the weird stuff for attention. Hope she wakes up.
  • Sunshine Mawi from Yangon,myanmarAlthough the MTV is kind of weird with naked Miley Cyrus, I like the song!! This is so amazing and very powerful..
