Lyrics For 7 Years By Lukas Graham

In “7 Years”, the Danish group Lukas Graham 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 is piano driven with a minimal soulful beat.

The song was released as the third single off Lukas Graham (Blue Album).

[Chorus 1]
Once I was 7 years old my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely
Once I was 7 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 11 years old my daddy told me
Go get yourself a wife or you’ll be lonely
Once I was 11 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

[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 ’bout 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
