Music Monday- Life Changes

Beautiful black and white rose with note on the petals

This song is a few years old but I never heard it until just the other day. It feels like my anthem! I might complain about all the moves due to my husband’s job but the truth is that I think I’m far happier with them than I would be if I never moved anywhere. Things get rough sometimes but I’m with the people I love, and I wouldn’t change that for the world. I learned early in life that the only that stays the same is that everything changes. What about you? Have there been times when your life has changed drastically from what you expected? For better or for worse? How did you cope?

“Life Changes”

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 anybody 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 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, man

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 remember the day I told my Daddy and Mama you’re gonna have a grand-kid, 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 showing, 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
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, the world, the world, the world, the world.
