Life Changes - Thomas Rhett




The Experience: "You make your plans and you hear God laughing". We all like to think we have the future worked out, but it nebver really goes as planned now does it?


Music video: In the video we follow Thomas and his wife and kids on tour. Mixing moments of family life with Thomas' concert performances.

The Meaning of Life Changes: In Life Changes Thomas Rhett talks about the many surprises life has dealt him. The adoption of the couples first daughter and then the unexpected arrival of another baby. His career taking off over night. His getting married right out of college. And many other little twists and turns along the way. Instead of letting all this stress them out Thomas and his wife just roll with the punches as the refrain of the song rightly says... "you can't stop it, just hop on the train...". And you know what? They "wouldn't change it for the world".

Ask yourself: What do you do with the curve balls life sends you? Do you embrace them and use them to grow?

LYRICS:

Waking up in my college dorm
Yeah, my life, it was pretty normal
Looking for a date to the spring formal
Wasn't worried 'bout nothing else
Majoring in undecided
Notebook full of bad songs I was writing
Never dreamed anyone else would like them
Now they're sitting on a Walmart shelf.

Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up, ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it, just hop on the train
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you hear God laughing
Life changes, and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no

I bought a ring and she said “I do”
But everybody else said, “man, you're twenty-two
“Whatcha trying to prove?”
“Hey why don't you wait?”
‘Cause I've been waiting on her since the second grade yeah
And now she got her own set of fans
She got a blue check mark by her Instagram
And I wrote a little song about holding her hand and now everybody wanna die happy now

Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it just hop on the train
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you got laughing
Life changes and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no

I remember the day I told my Daddy and Mama you're gonna have a grandkid, yep
From Uganda, that's right, we're adopting
And she is the cutest little girl that you've ever seen
Well I was wrapping my head around being a dad
A bigger ranch got thrown in the plans we thought we'd had
Now Lauren
and got one on the way
Yeah that's two into two, hey, what can I say?

Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it just hop on the train
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you got laughing
Life changes and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
