Miley Cyrus portrays a real mature persona in “Younger Now” music video released today as the second single off of the upcoming album with the same title. She is not the Miley we saw a couple years back in her ‘Bangerz’ era. This song and lyrics itself is proof that she has outgrown that era and is entering another. This is not old or new Miley-this is just Miley Cyrus going with the flow.
“Younger Now” speaks about welcoming a new change into her life as she grows older and realizes what life is about. It is about the acceptance of the harsh truths in life like never-ending change, gain and loss, beauty and darkness. And through all of this, if you can keep an open mind and be young at heart, you win the game of life.

Lyrics Review and Song Meaning of “Younger Now”
As mentioned above, this song is a life lesson to all of us. Let us dig into each verse for a more clearer understanding.
Feels like I just woke up
Like all this time I’ve been asleep
Even though it’s not who I am
I’m not afraid of who I used to be
Miley could be referring to her own past or making a general statement here. Miley used to be the wild card in the ‘most-talented’ pool of artists in our generation. It was unclear as to where she was heading in the past few years. But now we see that she is looking back at her decisions. She feels as if some sudden realization hit her and now she is awake. Looking back, she does not recognize the person she was. Neither does she recognize the person she is now. But she knows she is not the person whom she used to be. So this is a welcoming into a new beginning.
No one stays the same (oh, oh)
You know what goes up must come down (oh, oh)
Change is a thing you can count on (oh, oh)
I feel so much younger now (oh, oh)
Here are a few life advises from “Younger Now” by Miley Cyrus.
1. People change, deal with it and learn to change with them.
2. Nothing stays up, it must come down, just like Karma, it comes around.
3. Change is inevitable. Everything changes. The only constant in this universe is the fact that everything changes.
And with these realizations, Miley feels so much better-light weighted if you will. So much pressure and burden off her shoulders.
Feels like I’ve been living in a dream
But never make it to the end
My eyes open when they feel the light
It’s always right before I’m about to scream
With harsh realities come the realization that you’ve been living a lie or a dream all this time. The funny thing about dreams is that there is no clear beginning or end to it-so could be life if you get trapped in a fantasy. Best get down to earth!
