  • The song tells the real-life story of an anxious wait for the results of a pregnancy test when Church was a teenager. "I have this song about pregnancy. It's a personal song for me, because two pink lines happened to me when I was unmarried and a teenager," he confessed at the CMA Songwriters series in 2010. "When I first played this for my mom, I was expecting her to be really bothered by it. She goes, 'I love that song. Why are you singing about two pink lions?' I said, 'Mom, I happen to love lions; I'm a big cat fan.' It took her a long time to figure it out."
