Hey, it’s not illegal to sing about it, right? Bret Michaels somehow got Miley Cyrus to join him on his new single, “Nothing To Lose,” despite steamy lyrics that don’t really scream for the assistance of a 17-year-old (at least not in public). While Bret handles the opening verse—something about a woman’s pain—Cyrus joins in on the questionable chorus: “Won’t you fall down on me/ so close I can feel you breathe/ Tonight in the darkness/ if the truth is all we can see/ If I fall for you/ would you fall for me?” Depends what state we’re in, Miley!
If that wasn’t skeevy enough for you, the second verse has them admitting “Yeah, we both know better than this/ but we still can’t resist / slowly get undressed/ yeah, she does/ when she falls down on me…” To be fair, Miley sings along with that final “she,” suggesting she may merely be a loudly mixed third party rather than a participatant in Bret’s romantic fantasy. “Bret and I had a great time in the studio together just hanging out and making music,Ã¢â‚¬Â Miley said on her website after recording the track late last year. “HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s is so passionate about music and it shows. I think it is such a rad collaboration because it shows that two artists that seem so different on the outside can come together and organically create something that we are both proud of.” He certainly takes her seriously as an adult, it seems.
Check out the track after the jump.
Hopefully they’ll perform “Nothing To Lose” in public soon so we can watch proud papa Billy Ray Cyrus give another standing ovation.
