  • We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
    We jumped, never asking why
    We kissed, I fell under your spell
    A love no one could deny

    Don't you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you
    I can't live a lie, running for my life
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was wreck me
    Yeah, you wreck me

    I put you high up in the sky
    And now, you're not coming down
    It slowly turned, you let me burn
    And now, we're ashes on the ground

    Don't you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you
    I can't live a lie, running for my life
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was wreck me

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
    Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
    All you ever did was wreck me
    Yeah, you wreck me

    I never meant to start a war
    I just wanted you to let me in
    And instead of using force
    I guess I should've let you in
    I never meant to start a war
    I just wanted you to let me in
    I guess I should've let you in

    Don't you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was wreck me

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
    Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
    All you ever did was wreck me
    Yeah, you, you wreck me

    Yeah, you, you wreck me

  • Piper from San Franciscoi like this song, wrecking ball, she was on the cover of US weekly and we all got excited, we read the lyrics out loud in front of a miley cyrus statue in downtown china town, it was like the totally most awesome thing I did since coming down from Portland
  • Richard from The NetherlandsLove the (accidental) resemblance with "the Eagles - Certain Kind of Fool". Could it be a hidden tribute to Mammie?
  • Richmond Og from NigeriaI love this song.
