7 Years by Lukas Graham
Lukas Graham – 7 Years

Lukas Graham, a Danish pop band consisting of lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lukas Forchhammer, bassist Magnus Larsson, and drummer Mark Falgren came through with this evergreen song titled, 7 Years.

7 Years is a song where the singers reflect on their life and wonder about growing older. Nostalgia from ages 7, 11, and 20 are explored before the band goes on to wonder about their life in the possible future; specifically, when they’re 30 or 60, or when they have kids or a wife.

The song was released on June 16, 2015 with production assistance from Morten “Pilo” Pilegaard & Future Animals.

LYRICS;

[Chorus]
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

[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]
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]
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!)

[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]
Once, I was twenty years old, my story got told
I was writing ’bout everything I saw before me
Once, I was twenty years old

[Bridge]
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

[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

[Chorus]
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

[Breakdown]
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
Soon, I’ll be sixty 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 sixty years old

[Chorus]
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
