In his recent musical outputs, Thomas Rhett has gotten nostalgic and fallen in love and stayed there. Now, he’s getting autobiographical on his new track “Life Changes.” It’s the title track from off of his forthcoming album and it’s brimming with all of the positivity that this world needs right now.

The song comes complete with an earworm of an opening riff and an upbeat, persistent backbeat that grab you within its opening seconds. It’s as romantic as fans may have come to expect from Thomas Rhett and his big-hearted songwriting chops, too. Albeit, it’s not all just about the typical relationship. Rather, he’s looking back on his own life.

The most adorable moment of the entire song is its bridge. On it, he gets candid about him and his wife Lauren’s joy over simultaneously bringing their adopted daughter Willa Gray to the States and finding out Lauren was pregnant. It culminates into a moving end for a song that begins with a pretty normal run through Rhett’s college years.

Overall, “Life Changes” is perhaps everything we could’ve hoped it would be and then some. Thomas Rhett has really hit it out of the park with reminding us to appreciate every moment for what it is. Everything in life is interconnected, and looking back on the road traveled so far can leave you awestruck, but smiling. “Life Changes” is that thought condensed into a sunny three minutes and ten seconds.

Thomas Rhett’s “Life Changes” Lyrics

Wakin’ up in my college dorm

Yeah, my life it was pretty normal

Lookin’ for a date to the spring formal

Wasn’t worried ’bout nothin’ else, no

Majorin’ in Undecided

Notebook full of bad songs I was writin’

Never dreamed anybody else would like ’em

Now they’re sittin’ on a Walmart shelf

 

Ain’t it funny how life changes

You wake up, ain’t nothin’ the same

And life changes

You can’t stop it, just hop on a train

And you never know what’s gonna happen

You make your plans and your hear God laughin’

Life changes

And I wouldn’t change it for the world

This 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 22

What you tryna prove?

Hey, why don’t you wait?

‘Cause I’ve been waitin’ on her

Since the second grade, yeah

And now she got her own set of fans

Got a blue check mark by her Instagram

And I wrote a little song about holdin’ her hand

And now everybody wanna die happy, man

 

Ain’t it funny how life changes

You wake up, ain’t nothin’ the same

And life changes

You can’t stop it, just hop on a train

And you never know what’s gonna happen

You make your plans and your hear God laughin’

Life changes (yes it does)

And I wouldn’t change it for the world

This 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 mamma

You’re gonna have a grandkid, yup

From Uganda

That’s right, we’re adopting

And she is the cutest little girl

That you ever seen

Well, I was wrappin’ my head around bein’ a dad

A big wrench got thrown

in the plans we thought we had

Now Lauren’s showin’; got one on the way

Yeah that’s two under 2

 

Hey, what can I say

Ain’t it funny how life changes

You wake up, ain’t nothin’ the same

And life changes

You can’t stop it, just hop on a train

And you never know what’s gonna happen

You make your plans and your hear God laughin’

Life changes (Yes, it does)

And I wouldn’t change it for the world

This world, oh no

And I wouldn’t change it for the world

The world, oh no

The world

The world

The world

The world
