The acoustic driven track was an early fan favorite and has now racked up over fifteen million streams and growing. Charles opened up in early 2023 in his Stage AE Documentary about the inspiration behind the heartwarming track.

“It’s about how my life has gone, and some things didn’t go as I planned or wanted them to at the moment. Like, never getting to play college football even though I wanted to so bad, but that led me to picking up a guitar. Which then led me to meeting who would become my wife, which led to our kids," Charles shared.

"You know, the whole point of that song is basically to say all the twists and turns and the ups and downs in life for all of it…to where I’m at right now, with my life and my family, I’d do it all over again," he continued.

Nearly six months later and the relatable track has sparked an online trend that is too sweet not to talk about. Couples from all over the world are now using the sound on TikTok and Instagram to share photos showcasing their own relationships over the years to the songs catchy chorus.

We've got time dear

You're the girl I knew back when

Don't you love dear

I'm the boy whose always been

In love with you to the end

And I'd do it all again

With nearly thirty thousand fans alone on TikTok using the song, Charles took to his own social media to take part in the heartwarming trend. "I’ve absolutely loved seeing this trend on Tik Tok lately. There’s pros and cons to social media but this trend certainly seems to be a positive. Thank y’all for listening," Charles shared alongside family photos.
