Lukas Graham – 7 Years lyrics

[Chorus 1]
Once I was seven years old my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Once I was seven years old


[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus 2]
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


[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus 3]
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was 20 years old

(Lukas Graham!!!)

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus 4]
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
I was writing about everything, I saw before me
Once I was 20 years old
Soon we'll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold
We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming
Soon we'll be 30 years old

[Verse 4]
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

[Bridge]
Soon I'll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
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

[Chorus 5]
Soon I'll be 60 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 60 years old
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me
Soon I'll be 60 years old

[Chorus 1 recap]
Once I was seven years old, my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Once I was seven years old

Once I was seven years old

    I'll post everything I can that I got time. I am just 12 BTW but I can relate to it.

    Note: by saying "you" I don't mean everyone that reads this only those who relate.

    1st chorus- Your mother tells you that she would not be always there for you.

    Message is that true friends will help you and might do what your parents does for you. Your parents are may die before you do. They do not want you to feel lonely when they die.

    1st verse - This part is where you do the wrong stuff and followed our parents but not correctly.

    Message is you made friends with wrong people and thought you are doing the right thing. But you and your friends did wrong stuff like smoke herb and drink liquor. You thought that you were powerful and no one can beat you. And you worked for what you have to do because you thought it was right.

    2nd chorus- Your dad tells you to get a wife to make a family because most of people get happiness from them.

    2nd verse- BTW = By the way, BTW I relate to this part. You thought of writing about you life and make songs about it cause you think it was interesting. Because you want to be like your dad which is pretty well known for something.

    Message is you feel like it is worth a while to make songs and stories about yourself. You were bored by the glory because you always wanted have that by doing all sorts of stuff but you did not.

    3rd chorus- your story was told before the morning because you were pretty famous. But you always when you wake up you feel lonely 'coz you think that you will have to survive another wave of challenges.

    Sorry guys I gotta G. There will be a continuation. Check out my YouTube channel Xaxxer25the Phantom.
