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 is so tired of the drama
    We're 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 a way of starin' me right in the face
    So I try not to waste too much time at the bathroom sink

    It all gets complicated
    Sometimes overrated
    Glamour at its finest
    Just means someone's hiding
    From their own reality and the mirror at their bathroom sink

    It's amazing the amount of rejection that I see
    In my reflection but 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 starin' me right in the face
    So I try not to waste too much time at the bathroom sink

    I pray as I get ready
    For God 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 Writer/s: MIRANDA LAMBERT
