Miranda Lambert Keeps the Faith on Optimistic New Song 'Bluebird'

 

Miranda Lambert teased more of her forthcoming album Wildcard with the release of "Bluebird," an optimistic song about keeping hope in your heart.

Written by Lambert, Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby, "Bluebird" captures Lambert's resilient, fiery spirit, while showcasing her vulnerability.

"And if the house just keeps on winning, I get a wildcard up my sleeve/ And if love starts giving me lemons, I just mix 'em in my drink," Lambert sings. "And if the whole wild world stops singing and all the stars go dark/ I'll keep the light on in my soul and keep a bluebird in my heart."

The song is the fourth release from Wildcard. Lambert previously released "It All Comes Out in the Wash," "Locomotive" and "Mess With My Head."

'Bluebird' Lyrics:

Yeah, I'm a turner
I turn pages all the time
Don't like where I'm at
34 was bad, so I just turned to 35
Yeah, I'm a keeper
I keep diggin' down for the deep
Like the records I'm playin'
They might keep you waitin'
But you know I'm gonna play 'em for keeps

And if the house just keeps on winning
I get a wildcard up my sleeve
And if love keeps giving me lemons
I just mix 'em in my drink
And if the whole wild world stops singing
And all the stars go dark
I turn the light on in my soul
And keep a bluebird in my heart

I'm a giver
Yeah and I'm still givin 'em hell
Forgiving's pretty hard
So I made an art out of forgetting 'em well
Yeah, I'm a rhymer
I can turn twenty cents into a 10
If I get confused and I start to lose
I rhyme the dime till it all makes sense

And if the house just keeps on winning
I get a wildcard up my sleeve
And if love keeps giving me lemons
I just mix 'em in my drink
And if the whole wild world stops singing
And all the stars go dark
I turn the light on in my soul
And keep a bluebird in my heart

And if the house just keeps on winning
I get a wildcard up my sleeve
And if love starts giving me lemons
I just mix 'em in my drink
And if the whole wild world stops singing
And all the stars go dark
I'll keep the light on in my soul
And keep a bluebird in my heart

Keep a bluebird in my heart
And the bluebird sings
