Album: Younger Now (2017)
Charted: 11 10
  • I never came to the beach, or stood by the ocean
    I never sat by the shore, under the sun with my feet in the sand
    But you brought me here and I'm happy that you did
    'Cause now I'm as free as birds catching the wind
    I always thought I would sink, so I never swam
    I never went boatin', don't get how they are floatin'
    And sometimes I get so scared of what I can't understand

    But here I am, next to you
    The sky's more blue in Malibu
    Next to you
    In Malibu
    Next to you

    We watched the sun go down as we were walking
    I'd spent the rest of my life standing here talking
    You would explain the current, as I just smile
    Hoping that you'll stay the same, and nothing will change
    And it'll be us, just for a while
    Do we even exist?
    That's when I make the wish
    To swim away with the fish
    Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long?
    I never would've believed you if three years ago you told me
    I'd be here writing this song

    But here I am
    Next to you
    The sky's so blue
    In Malibu
    Next to you
    In Malibu
    Next to you

    Ah ah ah
    Ah ah ah
    Ah ah ah
    Ah ah ah
    Next to you Writer/s: Miley Cyrus, Oren Yoel Kleinman
