Yesterday, I was casually going along with my day, until I saw a lyric video from Chris Colston that absolutely wrecked my world.
The video was a teaser for his brand new single “Boy Like Me,” which dropped today.
It kicked off with Colston’s wife learning for the first time she was pregnant, and takes you through Chris finding out, and the couple revealing the big news to their family all the way until their baby was born.
Sure enough, him and his wife had their baby Emersyn Ruth last month.
This is the story of “A Boy Like Me” and it releases everywhere friday. This one is for you Emersyn Ruth 🎀
It’s a beautiful timeline, and it perfectly depicts the process of realizing you and your significant other are gearing up to take on parenthood.
The song is also a timeline within itself, as Chris sings about coming home to “two pink lines,” and how much their new baby has already changed him for the better, and even more so when she was born.
The lyrics say it all:
“Now those bucks, ducks, and bass on the wall Are out in the shed and that room down the hall Is set up for a little lady All covered up in daisies And I’m scared as hell but I can’t wait To hold your hand and see your face And baby girl, it’s crazy to think That come this June, God will give a girl like you To a boy like me”
