Many who have experienced heartbreak will tell you that music helps in the healing.

Last week, Miley Cyrus announced that she had separated from her husband Liam Hemsworth after 8 months of marriage.

The pair had been together since meeting while filming The Last Song in 2009 and had an on-off relationship until 2015, when it seemed very much on.

In light of the split, Miley has released a new song entitled “Slide Away.”

The track seems to address the nature of Miley and Liam’s relationship through its lyrics, especially their break-up.

“Once upon a time, it was made for us / Woke up one day, it had turned to dust / Baby, we were found, but now we’re lost / So it’s time to let it go.”

Other references in the song include their Malibu home which burnt down during the California wildfires and the fact that post break-up, the Hunger Games actor has returned home to Australia to be with family.
