The first time I heard "7 Years"

Updated: Oct 31, 2019



Song: "7 Years" - Lukas Graham

This is probably one of my favourite songs ever. I desensitize to songs pretty easily, I tend to loop songs I love over and over again. I love this song as much now as the first time. This is what the first time (hearing it) looked like . . . probably





7 Years



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













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











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 favour

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



















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 favour

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

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 warm me

Soon I'll be sixty years old

Once I was seven years old, 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
