22 Life Lessons You Didn’t Realize You Were Leaning From Miranda Lambert

This county goddess knows how to teach it, ya’ll!

1. Me and Charlie Talking: You Thought You Knew Everything

“When being lovers meant a stolen kiss and holding hands with nobody else around
Charlie said he wanted to get married but we were only ten so we’d have to wait
He said we’d never let our love run dry like so many do these days”

2. Mama’s Broken Heart: Rebelling is Necessary

“Go and fix your make up, girl, it’s just a break up
Run and hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady
‘Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
But this ain’t my mama’s broken heart.”

3. New Strings: Take on the World

“And I’ll grab the wheel and point it west
Pack the good and leave the rest
I’ll drive until I find the missing piece
You said I wouldn’t get too far on a tank of gas
And an empty heart
But I have everything I’ll ever need
I got this old guitar and a brand new set of strings.”

4. Only Prettier: Screw The Stereotype; Be YOU

“So let’s shake hands and reach across those parting lines
You got your friends just like I got mine
We might think a little differently
But we got a lot in common you will see
We’re just like you, only prettier.

Well I’ll keep drinkin’ and you’ll keep gettin’ skinnier
I’m just like you, only prettier”

5. All Kinds of Kinds: Difference is a Virtue, not a Detriment

“Thomas was a congressman with closets full of skeletons
And dresses that he wore on Friday nights.
Phyllis was a pharmacist, a dab of that, a pinch of this
Concocted to suppress her appetite…

Cause ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds.
All kinds of kinds.”

6. I Wanna Die: First Love is Overwhelming

“You know it’s so complicated, first you love then you hate it
Someone’s laughing, someone’s crying, someone livin’, someone’s dying
Sombody always looses and we still play the game
And the fire will always burn you and we still light the flame
Let’s make it up baby, cause I aint gonna fight
If you’re the death of me darlin’, I wanna die”

7. Fine Tune: “Cars” are Fun

“I’ve been missing all the vital signs
That I needed for love to work
Engine of a heart that would not start
had to jump it so much, it hurt
Everytime I looked under the hood
It was always a mystery
You pulled up in a rescue truck and
Showed up with a master key
And revved it up for me.”

8. Desperation: Love Doesn’t Make Sense

“Tell it like a lie,
live it like a movie
Give a heart away like it don’t mean nothing to me…

There’s danger in frustration
Complicated words slipping off of your tongue and ain’t one of them the truth
I’m still desperate for you.”

9. More Like Her: Everybody Breaks

“You had it all for a pretty little while
And some how you made me smile when I was sad
You took a chance on a bruised and beaten heart
Then you realized you wanted what you had
I guess I should’ve been more like that.

I should have held on to my pride
I should have never let you lie
I guess you got what you deserved
I guess I should’ve been more like her.”

10. Same Old You: Love Doesn’t Conquer All

“It’s the same old you
When you get to drinking
The same old you
When you’re on the town
The same old you
In church on Sunday
Getting high when the sun goes down

Well this time I done some thinking
And I think I’m done with you
Cause until I get to leaving
It’s just the same old me too”

11. Nobody’s Fool: You Have to Live with Your Decisions

“One more night with the same neon lights
And I’ll find my place at the bar
One more dance so I’ll buy one more round
And I’ll try to drown out my heart…

All my friends say “hey don’t you know him”
And I’ll try to play it off cool
When they ask I’ll just say he’s nobody
And me, well I’m nobody’s fool.”

12. Gunpowder and Lead: Believe in Your Own Power

“And he ain’t seen me crazy yet
He slapped my face and he shook me like a rag doll
Don’t that sound like a real man
I’m going to show him what little girls are made of
Gunpowder and lead.”

13. Heart Like Mine: Eventually, You’ll Find Where You Belong

“Even though I hate to admit it
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
The Christian folks say I should quit it
And I just smile and say “God Bless”.

Cause I heard Jesus He drank wine
And I bet we’d get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet He’d understand a heart like mine.”

14. Dry Town: Everybody Likes to Party

“It’s a dry town
No beer, no liquor for miles around
I’d give a nickel for a sip or two
To wash me down
Outta this dry town.”

15. Famous In A Small Town: People are Crazy. And It’s Awesome.

“Tyler and Casey broke up
It ended pretty quietly
We heard he was caught red-handed with her mama
That’s just what they let us all believe.

Every last one, route one, rural heart’s got a story to tell
Every grandma, in law, ex girlfriend
Maybe knows you just a little too well
Whether you’re late for church or you’re stuck in jail
Hey words gonna get around
Everybody dies famous in a small town.”

16. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: You’re Crazy Too

“Well I started throwing things and
I scared folks half to death
I got up in his face and smelled whiskey on his breath
I Didn’t give it a second thought to being thrown in jail
Well baby to a hammer everything looks like a nail
And I was mad as hell.

Well those pretty girls they’re all the same
But they’re damn well gonna know my name
I’m a crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”

17. Guilty In Here: Everybody Makes Mistakes

“I made a point of not mixin’
Love and pleasure in my life
Daytime boys and nightime boys
Usually don’t see eye to eye
But I’ve been on a roll of late
And they’re all on their knees
Is it guilty in here or is just me.”

18. Mama, I’m Alright: Sometimes You Have to Go

“You taught me how to stand those tests and trials
But you can’t se a desert sunrise in the bible.

She loves me more that anything
And she wants the world for me
Her west dropped of in El Paso,
And her north in Abilene
Mama I’m OK out here
I’ve seen how hard the world can be
My step is sure and I know my name
I’m strong just like you prayed I’d be.”

19. What About Georgia: Sometimes You have to Stay (and Help Out)

“You say you’re livin’ on the edge and I think you’re hangin’ from a ledge
Too scared to hold the hand that wants to help you up
Are you the man you thought you’d be by the time that you turned 33
Are you still a bullet in your daddy’s gun
Don’t forget boy you’re your mama’s only son
She’s at home and she’s been praying for you
So what about Georgia?”

20. The House That Build Me: When in Doubt, Return to Your Roots

“I know they say you cant go home again.
I just had to come back one last time.
Ma’am I know you don’t know me from Adam.
But these handprints on the front steps are mine.
And up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
And I bet you didn’t know under that live oak
my favorite dog is buried in the yard.

If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave.
Won’t take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.”

21. Easy Living: Not Everything is in the Pooper

“People keep searchin’ for a reason why
They say life’s a bitch and then you’ll die
But I can’t see
A reason for their point of view.

Cuz it’s easy living
Easy loving you.”

22. Love Song: Someday You Will Know Love

“I was standing there crying in the kitchen
It’s been one of those mornings that’s gonna last all day
And he comes in, wraps his arms around me
And I don’t even have to say a thing

That’s what makes it love
That’s what makes it a love song .”
