#MusicMonday – I don’t need to be loved by you …

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to this week’s #MusicMonday. Under the disapproving eye of Drew Weldon The Tattooed Book Geek, I get to share a track of my like with you wonderful people.

Today’s choice comes from an artist I have become OBSESSED with over the past month! Not a day goes by without me playing the Apple Essentials playlist on my phone. This one in particular gets stuck in my head, I’ve even have to stop myself singing out loud in my walk home from my Slimming World group or the school run … in public generally … thanks goodness for my #HomeAloneDay once a week … Enjoy…

Midnight Sky by Miley Cyrus

La-la, la-la, la

Yeah, it’s been a long night and the mirror’s tellin’ me to go home (home)
But it’s been a long time since I felt this good on my own
Uh, lotta years went by with my hands tied up in your ropes
Forever and ever, no more

The midnight sky is the road I’m takin’
Head high up in the clouds
Oh

I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (by you)
Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you
See my lips on her mouth, everybody’s talking now, baby
Ooh, you know it’s true, yeah
That I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (loved by you)

La-la, la-la, la

She got her hair pulled back ’cause the sweat’s drippin’ off of her face (her face)
Said it ain’t so bad if I wanna make a couple mistakes
You should know right now that I never stay put in one place
Forever and ever, no more (no more)

The midnight sky is the road I’m takin’
Head high up in the clouds
Oh

I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (by you)
Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you
See my lips on her mouth, everybody’s talking now, baby
Ooh, you know it’s true, yeah
That I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (by you)

Oh
I don’t hide blurry eyes like you
Like you

I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you (by you)
Fire in my lungs, can’t bite the devil on my tongue, you know
I don’t need to be loved by you
See his hands ’round my waist, thought you’d never be replaced, baby
Ooh, you know it’s true, yeah
That I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you, yeah

La-la, la-la, la
La-la
You know it’s true
You know it’s true
(Loved by you)
