Here Are the Lyrics to Thomas Rhett's 'Life Changes'

John Shearer
Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett progresses from college to marriage to parenthood in his reflective "Life Changes" track. His unexpected twists and turns in his life path map out his lyrical honesty marked by a pop-country beat.

Rhett sings about how he and his wife Lauren Akins adopted their daughter Willa Gray from Uganda and soon after had another daughter on the way, Ada. The unexpected "two [kids] under two [years]" has panned out for the country singer, and life's changes haven't caused any bumps on the road.

See the "Life Changes" lyrics below:

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, no
Majoring in undecided
Notebook full of bad songs I was writing
Never dreamed anyone else would like'em
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 and
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 god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) 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 wrench got thrown in the plans we thought we'd had
Now Lauren's showin', got one on the way
Yeah that's two under 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 and
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) 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
The world, the world
The world, the world
