Holler Hive Open Mic Community, Greetings to y'all. Glad to be sharing my entry this week #121, For this week's theme "Amor de Familia" which was chosen by recent spotlight artist @osmely, I'd be covering a song by Danish pop band "Lukas Graham" called "7 years".

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.

“7 Years” is a song by popular Danish band Lukas Graham which basically deals with the topic of growing older. According to Lukas Graham lead vocalist Lukas Forchhammer, the song is about events in his life and the things he hopes to achieve in the coming years. One of the real events of his life he mentions in the lyrics of the song is “smoking herb” and taking burning alcoholic beverages. And what’s interesting is the he did these at the age of 11.
Speaking with Radio.com, Forchhammer said the song is mainly about his aim to become a good father. He hopes to become such a wonderful father that even when he is old and boring, his children would want to visit him frequently. According to him, he had a “perfect father” who was very cool. Owing to this, his dreams in life are to become as cool as his father was. I do hope y'all enjoy🎧 my cover of this beautiful tune 😉.

LYRICS

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

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

(Lukas Graham!)

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

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

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, 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
