Miley Cyrus “Muddy Feet” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Miley Cyrus is heard screaming at her partner to get out of her house and out of her life for good. He has the audacity to live under Miley’s roof and cheat on her. Miley wants no part of his infidelity and is kicking him out of her door.
Lately, Miley has been smelling different cologne smells on this man. Miley knows all his colognes because she bought them for him. She gives the benefit of the doubt to the man for now. But of course, he can’t hide it forever. Something validated her suspicions. Even if nothing did, he could not keep his stories straight when she questioned him. His responses to her questions were more questions.
Miley Cyrus doesn’t really want to deal with a cheater or even an alleged cheater. Who has time for this?!
You’vе watered the weeds and you killed all the roses
Leaving suspicions unresolved is as worse as cheating itself. If you leave those weeds unattended, they will eventually grow and take over a beautiful rose garden. Always talk things out and even better act in ways that don’t water your partner’s suspicions.
Another important message in the song is Miley singing that worthy people will come into your life when the door closes on the unworthy ones. This plays on the popular phrase ‘when one door closes, another door will open.’ So don’t stick too bad apples. Let them rot away. Make room for better apples.
