That’s right, world: Miley turns the big 2-0 today! We can’t believe we’ve been watching her grow up for over six years — that photo above is from 2006 when she was only 14. Miley’s music has definitely changed in six years as well, so as a birthday treat for Ms. Cyrus, we thought we’d round up her best lyrics about getting older and wiser. See which songs made the cut:
See You Again
“I’ve got a way of knowin’ when somethin’ is right / I feel like I must have known you in another life / ‘Cause I felt this deep connection when you looked in my eyes / Now I can’t wait to see you again”
Wait, Miley was 15 when she sang this song? We can’t even believe it. Those lyrics are something that a 30-year-old could sing, y’all. Feeling a deep connection with somebody is definitely a sign of growing up.
When I Look At You
“Everybody needs inspiration / Everybody needs a song / A beautiful melody when the night’s so long / ‘Cause there is no guarantee that this life is easy”
You got that right, Miley: life sure isn’t easy and neither is getting older. But that’s why we need music like yours to get through it!
“The struggles I’m facing / The chances I’m taking / Sometimes might knock me down / But no, I’m not breaking”
One of the most grown-up things you can do is get back up again when you’ve been burdened with the heavy stuff in life. Take it from Miley!
