Lyrically it discusses Cyrus coming to terms with the realization that she's living life to the fullest, things she dreamed about when she was young, and embrace the love of her fans and tells them to have fun with her, whereas Ludacris' verse talks about overcoming obstacles and making a name for [your]self.

LyricsEdit

[Intro]
Let me see your hands in the air, ohhh

[Verse]
I remember dreaming bout
The things I do right now
Like I climbed on to a cloud
Scared to look back down
I remember when
I was all alone
Nobody round
To hold me down
But now you're here with me tonight
Look at what you found
I was lonely for some time
Now it's only you and I
I won't leave without your love tonight, tonight

[Chorus]
I'm dancing
To the sound
Of my words in the crowd
Too high to come down
So let me see your hands in the air,
Let me see your hands in the air
Let me see your hands in the air

[Verse: Ludacris]
It's go hard or go home and it ain't no lookin' back
My toughest enemy's is in the mirror, would you look at that?
I'm top five, dead or alive, one of the best to rhyme
And if I ever take a seat I stood the test of time
Every verse, every song, every feature I was on
Better know that I abused it
If I die before my time I'll still be living through my music
I cracked the industry open, but still got this shit on lock
Even on the highway up to heaven Luda still would be on top

[Chorus]
I'm dancing
To the sound
Of my words in the crowd
Too high to come down
So let me see your hands in the air
Let me see your hands in the air
Let me see your hands in the air

Woah Woah Woah
Ooooooh [x4]

yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Ooooooh [x2]

[Chorus]
I'm dancing
To the sound
Of my words in the crowd
Too high to come down
So let me see your hands in the air
Let me see your hands in the air
Let me see your hands in the air
