Miranda Lambert, ‘Heart Like Mine’ – Song Spotlight
Miranda Lambert defiantly defends her dating, drinking and other lifestyle choices on ‘Heart Like Mine,’ which, remarkably, is the fifth single from her 2009 album ‘Revolution.’
The blustery, mid-tempo song finds Lambert blending mandolins, electric guitars and rock drums, sounding like she’d be just as comfortable in ‘Exile on Main Street’ territory as she is on modern country radio.
Miranda quickly admits she “ain’t the kind you take home to mama,” fessing up to drinking, smoking cigarettes and getting tattoos against her father’s wishes.
However, she’s quick to point out that there’s one important person who will accept her as she is:
“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.”
‘Heart Like Mine’ follows ‘Dead Flowers,’ ‘White Liar,’ The House That Built Me’ and ‘Only Prettier’ from Lambert’s platinum-selling third album ‘Revolution,’ which has also been nominated for four Grammy Awards.
