She always knows how to put emotion into every performance. 

Two-time Grammy Award winner, and country music icon, Miranda Lambert has a way with lyrics. Even when they aren't her own, she connects to the songs she sings, which makes her so amazing to watch. 

She performed The Eagles' song "Desperado" at the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors for a star-studded crowd. Everyone from the President of the United States to Star Wars creator George Lucas were in attendance. No pressure, Miranda!

The Eagles were scheduled to participate in the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors on December 6th to celebrate the band's accomplishments. However, due to band founder, Glenn Frey's health problems, and scheduled surgery they decided to postpone the honor until next year. 

Even so, The Kennedy Center decided to honor the band with Lambert's beautiful rendition of their 1973 hit, "Desperado"

Watch the performance below! 

LYRICS BELOW

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
