Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Lukas Graham:

7 Years

Length: 3:57

Release: 2015

Opening 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 11 smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure
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
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
