“Next Thing You Know” by Jordan Davis
For the most part, it can be said that Jordan Davis’ “Next Thing You Know” song speaks to a phenomenon that we will refer to as random love. At first, the subject comes off as someone who has lost hope in romance.
But then, he randomly meets a lady at a bar (of course), and that small, initial interaction proves to be the seed to the two of them ultimately becoming man and wife.
In delineating the progression of this relationship, Jordan Davis uses the term “next thing you know” throughout. In context what said phrase symbolizes, most simply put, is how quickly and even unexpectedly matters can progress from one stage to the next. Then later, in the bridge, it is used to point to the enduringness of the featured couple’s union.
So this is a love song which depicts how an ideal romance is supposed to proceed – from love at first sight, if you will, to marriage and then “a yard full of… kids”. But by the time all is said and done, the lyrics aren’t solely about love but also “how fast” the years can fly by, when you’re with that special someone.
Beyond that, such a vision was not only inspired, as noted in the outro, by idyllic country living but also Jordan’s own career and familial trajectory.
