"Bottom of the Ocean" as written by and Miley Ray Cyrus Tim James....
It's been in the past for awhile
I get a flash and I smile
Am I crazy
Still miss you baby
It was real
It was right

But it burned too hot to survive
All that's left
Is all these ashes
Where does the love go
I don't know
When it's all said and done

How could I be losing you forever
After all the time we spent together
I had to know why
I had to lose you
Now you just become
Like everything I'll
Never find again

At the bottom of the ocean
Dodod dododo
Dododo dodod
Dododo dododo
In a dream you appear
For awhile you were here
So I keep sleeping
Just to keep you with me

I draw a map
Connect the dots
With all the memories that I got
What I'm missing
I'll keep reliving
Where does the love go
I don't know
When it's all said and done
How could I be losing you forever

After all the time we spent together
I had to know why
I had to lose you
Now you just become
Like everything I'll never find again
At the bottom of the ocean

This is it
Let go
Breathe
You don't have to
Love me for me too
Baby ever understand
Just know I love the time we both had
And I don't ever wanna see you sad

Be happy
I don't wanna hold you
If you don't wanna tell me
You love me babe
Just know I'm gonna have to walk away
I'll be big enough for the both of us
To say be happy

Dodododododo
Be happy
Dodododododo
Be happy
Dodododododo
Be happy

    Song MeaningFrom Miley Cyrus herself. Taken from her autobiography Miles To Go (Page 49):

    "Bottom Of The Ocean started off as a song about Lyric and Melody {her pet fish}. But once I began writing, it was about so much more than my silly fish (no offence to the fish RIP) It was about anyone's dreams, boyfriends, a lost parent, an abusive relationship. It's saying if there's someone you've loved but for some reason you can't love them anymore, you have to take your feelings, scoop them out and put them at the bottom of the ocean. Hide them there, carefully and respectfully, in the one place where they can't ever be found. Bottom Of The Ocean is a 'good-bye' song, a love song. You'd never think it was about fish. Well except for the 'ocean' part.

    General Commentokay...
    it goes like this.
    Miley broke up with her boyfriend because she knew it was the right thing.
    but she can't forget about him and she still has dreams about him.
    but she knows that she can't get him back.
    thats why its the "bottom of the ocean"
    she wants him to be happy but he can't have her.
    thats what i think.
    maybe its even vise-versa.
    it can be.

    General CommentI think this song is really cooled and chilled. Interesting idea of loosing things at the bottom of the ocean too. Did Miley come up with that or am I been dumb and it's really a well known quote?

    General CommentI think Miley wrote this song about Nick and even though they write so much bad stuff about her in the newspapers I believe that she's a great girl and not a slut at all.

    "And I don't ever wanna see you sad
    Be happy
    'Cause I don't wanna hold you
    If you don't wanna tell me you love me, babe
    Just know I'm gonna have to walk away
    I'll be big enough for both of us to say
    Be happy" - I think that it was very brave of her to say something like this in a song and it's truly coming from her heart, she's strong enough to move on but isn't like the most girls who talk bad about their ex afterwards, she moves on but still got him good in her memory.
