LUKAS GRAHAM 7 Years Lyrics

Once I was seven years old, my mamma 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 won’t learn them 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 the 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.

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 atleast those in favor
And if we don’t lead before I leave, I hope ill 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 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 60 years old, my daddy got 61
Remember life and then your life becomes a better one
I made the 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 bore 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 bore me
Soon I’ll be 60 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

About Lukas Graham 7 Years Song

Frontman Lukas Graham Forchhammer described “7 Years” as a song about his life so far and what he hopes to achieve in the future. He said that the reason the lyrics go as far as the age of 60 is because his father died at 61 and he needed to “pass it to believe it.” He continued: “It’s a song about growing older. I’m also coming to a realisation that being a father is the most important thing. My biggest dream is not to be some negative old dude, but to have my kids’ friends say, ‘You’re going to visit your dad? Say hi! He’s awesome.’ I had a perfect father.”

Regarding the band’s prior failure to break into the UK market Forchhammer stated, “It’s like my father died at exactly the right moment – and I know that’s something I shouldn’t say, but I just did! If my dad hadn’t died in 2012 I wouldn’t have written our song Happy Home, which catapulted us into a Scandinavian success story. I wouldn’t have written 7 Years, which got us signed to a publisher in America and ultimately signed to Warner Bros.”[2]

In a review in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten critic Anders Houmøller Thomsen compares the song to The Beatles “When I’m Sixty-Four”: “The ballad “7 Years” sounds like a current answer to The Beatles “When I’m Sixty-Four”. “7 Years” bubbles with ignited storytelling about life’s fast speed, when the daydreams of childhood and youth suddenly becomes replaced by retirement-melancholia. Graham finds his own path between sweet sentimentality and heartbreaking empathy, and like a young McCartney Graham also has a similar instinctive ability to craft superglue-sticking choruses.”

“7 Years” is a song written in the key of B♭ major. It runs at 120 bpm

A music video to accompany the release of “7 Years” was first released onto YouTube on 15 December 2015 at a total length of three minutes and fifty-nine seconds. As of 26 March 2016, it, combined with the official lyric video, received more than 92 million views.
