7 Years

Lyricist: Lukas Graham    Composer: Lukas Graham

Once I was seven years old my mama told me
"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely"
Once I was 7 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 11, going a church and finding a bigger picture
Never rich, so we were out to make that steady figure
Once I was 11 years old My daddy told me
"Go get yourself a man, or you'll be lonely."
Once I was 11 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 20 years old
My story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was 20 years old

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 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

I'm still learning about life
My husband had children with 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 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
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 warm me.
Soon I'll be 60 years old

Once I was 7 years old
My mama told me,
"Go make yourself some friends, or you'll be lonely."
Once I was 7 years old
