Miranda Lambert has said over and over again— if you want to know the truth or anything about her life (especially the past 18 months)– just listen to the words she’s written on her double disc, The Weight of These Wings. It’s all there.
The exact moment she fell for Anderson East is documented in the tune “Pushin’ Time,” which she co-wrote with Foy Vance and Natalie Hemby. East sings backup vocals on the studio version.
Are we fools for rushin’ in,
Cause I already dread the end.
Lonely ain’t no place to start;
I guess that’s just where we are.
Oh how I remember well
The sunset on September 12.
I disappeared to get a drink;
You still kept your eyes on me
Sometimes loves acts out of spite,
And good things happen over night.
Can’t take it slow cause you and I are pushin time
Lambert sang the tune on TV for the first time during the 18th annual “Home for the Holidays” broadcast on CBS.
For this version, Lambert sang with just a steel guitar and an acoustic guitar. It’s great insight into her life and love and just a damn good tune.
