Lyrics

play Once I was seven years old my momma told me
play Go make yourself some friends
play or you'll be lonely
play Once I was seven years old

play It was a big big world,
play but we thought we were bigger
play Pushing each other to the limits,
play we were learning quicker
play By eleven smoking herb and
play drinking burning liquor
play Never rich so we were out
play to make that steady figure

play Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
play Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
play Once I was eleven years old

play I always had that dream like my daddy before me
play So I started writing songs,
play I started writing stories
play Something about that glory
play just always seemed to bore me
play 'Cause only those I really love
play will ever really know me

play Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
play Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
play Once I was twenty years old

play I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure
play 'Cause I know the smallest voices,
play they can make it major
play I got my boys with me at least those in favor
play And if we don't meet before I leave,
play I hope I'll see you later

play Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
play I was writing about everything,
play I saw before me
play Once I was twenty years old

play Soon we'll be thirty years old,
play our songs have been sold
play We've traveled around the world
play and we're still roaming
play Soon we'll be thirty years old

play I'm still learning about life
play My woman brought children for me
play So I can sing them all my songs
play And I can tell them stories
play Most of my boys are with me
play Some are still out seeking glory
play And some I had to leave behind
play My brother I'm still sorry

play Soon I'll be sixty years old,
play my daddy got sixty-one
play Remember life and then
play your life becomes a better one
play I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
play I hope my children come and visit,
play once or twice a month

play Soon I'll be sixty years old,
play will I think the world is cold
play Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
play Soon I'll be sixty years old
play Soon I'll be sixty years old,
play will I think the world is cold
play Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
play Soon I'll be sixty years old

play Once I was seven years old, momma told me
play Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
play Once I was seven years old

play Once I was seven years old

meaning Meaning

A song about growing up in a 'utopian community' in Denmark (Christiania)

The lyrics are by the singer himself, under his full name, Lukas Graham Forchhammer – an indication of his cross-national heritage. It's a highly emotive song. The singer recalls his childhood, his hopes, his dreams – and smoking weed at 11. He looks forward to turning 60. It's personal. “I couldn't go any further than 60 because my father died at 61,” Graham, who is 27, has said.
