"Before the Storm (feat. Miley Cyrus)" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Joseph Jonas, Kevin Jonas Ii and Miley Cirus....
I know this isn't what I wanted
I never thought it'd come this far
Just thinking back to where we started
And how we lost all that we are
We were young and times were easy
But I could see it's not the same
I'm standing here but you don't see me
Give it all for that to change

I don't want
To lose her
Don't let her go

Standing out in the rain
Need to know if it's over
Cause I would leave you alone
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Like I did before the storm

Yeah
Before the storm

With every strike of lightening
Comes a memory that lasts
And not a word is left unspoken
As a thunder starts to crash
Maybe I should give up

Standing out in the rain
Need to know if it's over
Cause I would leave you alone
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Like I did before the storm

Trying to keep
The light from going out
And the clouds were ripping out my broken heart
They always say
A heart is not a home
Without the one who gets you through the storm

Standing out in the rain
Need to know if it's over
Cause I would leave you alone
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Like I did before the storm

    General CommentEven though i´m not a Miley Cyrus neither a Jonas brother fan
    I think this song is excellent and one of their best songs.
    They sound great together.
    This song is very powerful and meaningful.
    It is about their break up, but now they are back together
    i´m happy for them they are great together.

    My InterpretationI think the song is obviously about a couple who are looking back to before they got in a big fight (the storm) and now they're saying "If it's over, then tell me and I can move on, but if it's not, we'll never be the same as we were before the fight" Relationships are never the same after your first big fight, and I think that's what Nick means by "I'll never hold her like I did before the storm" He obviously doesn't want to lose what they had, and she just wants to know what's up.


    It's a very powerful song, I love that they did this one together.

    General Commentwow...... its ironic that days after miley and justin break up that this song is leaked..... it has to be about them.... its a really beautifully written song about feeling lost after losing the one person you thought you would never lose... and before the breakup(storm) talking about the love they shared. in one of miley's songs she talks about standing in the rain(was it 7 things? i dont remember) and about breaking up with the person.....

    General CommentI agree with what ada111 said. Yes, she did say that in 7 Things. In JB's song sorry they said: filled with sorrow, filled with pain knowing that I am to blame for leaving your heart out in the rain...

    So I assume it was raining or something when they broke up...lol.

    General Commentno duhhh it's about themm. nick has said himself that he wanted miley to sing on it and they even changed the lyrics a little bit so it makes more sense that it IS about them. and sorry wasn't even written by nick referring to him and miley, it was written by joe about a girl he wasn't there for while he was on tour.

    General CommentIt's obviously about her and Nick, because why else would Nick want her singing on this song with them? I don't think they're back together but they're friends and they're just expressing their past relationship in music. A really powerful song though.

    General Commentum..
    if you read the booklet that comes with the cd it clearly states in small, printed letters that nick, joe, kevin, and miley all wrote the song.
    Not only did miley sing on this track she helped write it too.
