Poor Miranda Lambert! The country singer is understandably taking Blake Shelton’s new relationship with Gwen Stefani pretty hard, and she even revealed that she’s listening to one pretty sad song on repeat to deal with everything. Read the heartbreaking lyrics here.

Alongside a pic of album artwork for Lake Street Dive, Miranda shared the lyrics that have hit home for her from the band’s song “Better Than.” It’s not hard to figure out that the message of the verse of the song is exactly what the 31-year-old has been going through over the last several days as her ex’s new relationship continues to be a favorite topic in the media.
“I could spend ages reading the news/I could spend days, singing the blues,” the lyrics read. “But I turn up the tv light/give up without a fight/better than pretending to know what’s wrong and what’s right.” Miranda’s making one thing clear: She’s doing her best to avoid all the hype about Blake and Gwen, and is instead trying to move past the whole thing.
The message is eerily similar to the one in her own song “Bathroom Sink,” which she performed at the CMA Awards on Nov. 4, just hours after The Voice coaches went public with their relationship. In the powerful song, Miranda sings about getting it together and facing the world no matter how low you’re feeling…which is exactly, unfortunately, what she had to do during the show.
Even though the “Little Red Wagon” singer was upset that Blake and Gwen decided to go public right before the CMAs, she’s been putting on a brave face in the aftermath. “I’m still floating on a cloud from last night,” she wrote on Instagram Nov. 5, referencing her award win for Female Vocalist of the Year. “Thank you so much @cma for celebrating country music in a big away and for letting me be part of it. Today was a day spent reflecting on this amazing life that Nashville and country music fans have given me. And my friends. I’m so grateful.”
