Bathroom Sink - Miranda Lambert

The Experience: It's hard. Some days you do feel beautiful, and then someone will knock you down with a mean comment. It's exhausting... all the stuff that goes into just going out into public sometimes. I wish I could just not do it for a day and see what happens. The Bathroom Sink is the place where every women has to face who she really is and who she wants to be... Full interview here.

Music Video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Bathroom Sink: The whole song revolves around the bathroom sink.   That's where a girl worries, and puts on the smile she'll hide those worries behind - puttin’ off the hard stuff, hoping that it passes. Fake smile and eyelashes. It's where she dreams of the future - lookin’ forward to the girl I wanna be - and where she faces her regrets - regret has got a way of staring me right in the faceAccording to Miranda, the bathroom sink is where the makeup comes off and every girl faces reality - glamour at its finest just means someone’s hidin’ from their own reality and the mirror at their bathroom sinkThe mirror is where she can't hide - I can't get out of the way. And it's where she counts her blessings as she cleans up the good and the bad at the bathroom sink.

Ask Yourself: When was the last time you cleaned up the bathroom sink?


Puttin’ on my makeup
Puttin’ off the hard stuff
Hoping that it passes
Fake smile and eyelashes
I wash my hands and try not to think
Or dirty up my bathroom sink

I’m at it again with mama
Everybody’s so tired of the drama
Were still fighting like I’m sixteen
And I guess we always will be
She taught me how to pray and drink
And how to clean the bathroom sink

It's amazing, the amount of rejection
That I see in my reflection
And I can't get out of the way
I'm lookin’ forward to the girl I wanna be
But regret has got a way of staring me right in the face
So I try not to waste too much time
At the bathroom sink

It all gets complicated
And sometimes overrated
Glamour at its finest
Just means someone’s hidin’
From their own reality
And the mirror at their bathroom sink

I pray as I get ready
Forgot to make me steady
And I thank him for his patience
And I take my medication
And bless this day and all it brings
And I clean up the bathroom sink
