Lukas Graham: "7 Years"

 

Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,

"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."

Once I was seven years old

 

It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger

Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker

By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor

Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

 

Once I was eleven years old. My daddy told me,

"Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely."

Once I was eleven years old

 

I always had that dream like my daddy before me

So I started writing songs, I started writing stories

Something about that glory,

Just always seemed to bore me

'Cause only those I really love will ever really know me

 

Once I was twenty years old.

My story got told

Before the morning sun, when life was lonely

Once I was twenty years old

 

(Lukas Graham!)

 

I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure

'Cause I know the smallest voices. They can make it major

I got my boys with me at least those in favor

And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later

 

Once I was twenty years old.

My story got told

I was writing about everything I saw before me

Once I was twenty years old

 

Soon we'll be thirty years old,

Our songs have been sold

We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming

Soon we'll be thirty years old

 

I'm still learning about life

My woman brought children for me

So I can sing them all my songs

And I can tell them stories

Most of my boys are with me

Some are still out seeking glory

And some I had to leave behind

My brother I'm still sorry

 

Soon I'll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one

Remember life and then your life becomes a better one

I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once

I hope my children come and visit once or twice a month

 

[2x]

Soon I'll be sixty years old,

Will I think the world is cold

Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me?

Soon I'll be sixty years old

 

Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,

"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."

Once I was seven years old

Once I was seven years old
