OMG, Miley Cyrus' new song “Week Without You” is here and everyone has a lot of questions about those lyrics. Is “Week Without You” about Liam Hemsworth? Cyrus' new love song definitely has people talking.

Cyrus' new album, Younger Now, drops Sept. 29 and while she's shared a few songs, it's her new break-up anthem that has got people speculating.

“Week Without You” lyrics include:

I know that I gave you my heart, but you stomped it to the ground. And that's what's got me wondering what it's like to not have you around.

Oh. Wow. Doesn't that sound like it could totally be all about Hemsworth?

And take a look at these lyrics: "You know I'd miss you, baby/Feels like I've known you since I was just seven years old. You used to make me smile but now you don't do that anymore. It feels like I'm always just crying and sleeping alone."

That definitely sounds like the heartache of love lost.

She also sings:

If I spent a week without you Bet you'd wonder what I do I think that I'd start going out Get caught kissing other dudes

Following Cyrus and Hemsworth's breakup in 2013, she dated and kissed other people, so that may be a reference to her post-breakup dating life.

Cyrus has been sharing small snippets of each track off the upcoming album and getting fans plenty excited for the release.

Cyrus explained the process for writing the new album in a statement: “This writing process has been a really different experience because I've never put out an album this way. People have been asking me, 'is this like a re-introduction of yourself?' But it's not that at all. Actually, it's more like, I am this person who embraces all my past selves. This album is the most me for right now that I can be.”

In an interview with Sirius XM in May 2017, Cyrus spoke about her relationship and breakup with Hemsworth, explaining: "Everything is happening for the right reason. I knew that when we weren't together for the first time. I didn't know if that was the end of it or know if we'd be back together again, but knew that wherever I was going, I was on the right path.”

She added: “I think people that break up and get back together, that's awesome. You get time to be yourself. You get time to grow up. I think if you're growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being. So I'm really solid, and then he gets to be really solid. And together we get to be two really grounded people. It's not a half and a half making a whole.”

She also discussed the possibility of marriage earlier this month with the Sun on Sunday Morning, explaining:

I don't envision marriage. I'm 24. I hope to get to live a little bit more. I have too much living to do [before I get married]. Three years ago, if you'd asked me if I'd be here, this happy with this man, I'd have been stunned. I'm just riding this out. In some relationships, you lose yourself by being with someone else. Actually, it made me find myself more. I have no idea what the next three years will bring, but if it's possible to get even happier, I'll take it.”

Fans are loving the new song, with tweets such as:

"I love week without you so much!!!!! so far Miley's album is incredible."


Do you think "Week Without You" references her relationship with Hemsworth, or is Cyrus just creating a fictional story about a breakup?
