I put you high up in the sky
And now, you’re not coming down
It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we’re ashes on the ground

from Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Miley put Liam (or Nick!) on a high pedestal, and he got so full of himself that he burned in the sun

Similar to the story of Icarus, Miley’s lover got overzealous, flying a bit too close to the sun, and it destroyed their relationship
